When we founded our center over a decade ago, we were one of the first centers in the country to offer a holistic, non 12 step approach to addiction recovery. Since that time, we have worked with hundreds of clients from around the world. We have honed and refined our Integrative Addiction Recoverysm program, consistent with the scientific advancements that drive our work and provide the evidence to demonstrate the success of our approach.
Our 30-day, residential program: combines leading-edge science from western medicine with ancient wisdom and healing modalities in a way that delivers measurable results; treats the whole person – mind, body, soul and spirit; and addresses the root cause behind the addiction, rather than following a disease model and managing symptoms. Learn more about Integrative Addiction Recovery.
Our experience and research shows that recovery is not a one size fits all process. While 12 step programs work for some, they do not work for everyone. Some people go as far as they can in 12 step and want to take their recovery to a deeper level. That is when they call us. Learn more about our non 12 step program.
Traditional treatment centers are often fragmented and focus predominately on the mind and peripherally the body. Holistic addiction treatment is an approach based upon the knowledge that sustained recovery can only occur when a person’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health are addressed. Learn more about our holistic treatment plan.
Science has increasingly shown us that addiction and related disorders can be cured if their underlying causes are resolved. This is a radical departure from the prevailing model of recovery in which a person can never fully recover. Thanks to advances in the field of neuroscience and epigenetics, recovery no longer is limited to symptom management and remission. Learn more about the science behind our program.
Science now very convincingly proves that nutrition is a powerful tool in the treatment of addiction and psychiatric issues through an integrative addiction recovery approach.
Extensive research confirms what we have long known intuitively and through experience: good nutrition dramatically improves the overall quality of life, and nutritional interventions are both curative and preventative. Learn more about our nutrition program.
There are a few key components to the philosophy behind our program. They are:
1. We Don’t Believe in a Fear-Based Model of Recovery
Many traditional programs – from psychotherapy to 12-step programs are often based on fear. This means that you must be hypervigilant about staying away from the “triggers” (certain people, places or things) that will lead you back to your addictions or compulsions. While this approach can be effective for some people, through time, many of those fortunate few find themselves asking, “Is this as good as it gets?”
Worse, it leaves the less fortunate in a cycle of relapse, pain and desperation. When your life is only about “symptom management”, you still have the “hole in the soul”. Our approach is about the “carrot” rather than the “stick”. When you are recovered (mind, body, soul and spirit), you are able to access your peace, passion and meaning for life. When your deep desires are being met, it is amazing how your cravings and compulsions fall away.
2. More Power, Not Power “Less”
Instead of replacing one addiction, disempowering behavior or limiting belief system with another, our treatment program is about the expansion of your cognitive, emotional and spiritual capability. You will be guided out of a place of victimization and into a place of self-empowerment. You become the master architect of your own life.
3. Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life
Quantum physics has given us the key to unlocking human potential and personal power. Your thoughts, beliefs and emotions create your perceived reality.
The problem for most of us is that we unconsciously create what we don’t want in life, rather than consciously creating what we do want. Our program helps you identify and resolve your disempowering thoughts, beliefs and emotions that keep you stuck in the cycle of addiction and despair.
4. The Power of Your Heart
There is science behind the statement “follow your heart”. Studies by the Institute of Heart Math show that the heart has a magnetic field 5,000% greater than that of the brain. Research shows that your heart sends more information to your brain than your brain sends to your heart. This means your heart has innate intelligence. Heart/brain communication, referred to as coherence, reduces anxiety, stress and increases overall wellbeing. You will be given the tools and technology to achieve this.
5. Uncovering Subconscious Beliefs
The subconscious mind is substantially bigger than the conscious mind and can account for as much as 95% of our brain activity throughout the day. If your conscious belief that “I am worthy” is overpowered by a subconscious limiting belief that you are unworthy, unlovable or defective, it is inevitable that you will experience the latter.
All trauma is recorded and stored in the limbic brain, which is part of the subconscious mind. Unresolved trauma continues to inform subconscious beliefs until it is resolved.
In our program, you will uncover and heal unresolved trauma and related subconscious beliefs. You are then free to create new beliefs that are in alignment with your core values your deep desires. When your conscious and subconscious beliefs are aligned, the war within is over.
6. Nothing Is Predetermined – Not Even Your Genetics
Groundbreaking new discoveries in biology called “epigenetics” have shown that our genes are not locked into a predetermined and unchangeable blueprint at birth. Instead, our beliefs and perceptions of ourselves and our environment, including our consciousness, actively influence our genes. This means the old adage “once an addict, always an addict” is simply and scientifically not true. Through specific practices and tools, you will learn how to consciously effect the expression of your genes, resulting in changes in your body and mind.
7. Cleanse Your Energetic Blueprint
Science has validated that every living thing has an energy body. Your physical body is a mirror reflection of the health of your energetic body, which informs your genetic blueprint. This electromagnetic energy field is connected to specific energy centers, organs and hormonal centers in the body. If your electromagnetic energy field is not functioning optimally, your physical and mental health will be compromised.
The Sanctuary program protocols will revitalize and strengthen your electromagnetic energy field. You will then be shown techniques to maintain a healthy, functioning energetic system.
