Our Integrative Addiction Recoverysm program has been successful in helping hundreds of clients struggling with depression, codependency, PTSD, and anxiety, whether or not they are related directly to addiction.
Although we have found these mental health conditions are common in people struggling with addiction, many clients have sought recovery for mental health conditions even when no addiction is present. Holistic treatment facilities, such as, The Sanctuary in Sedona, AZ, provide a rehabilitation approach that is suited for complete recovery for the mind, body, and soul.
Addiction typically does develop in a vacuum. More often than not, there exists adjunctive or underlying conditions at the root of this disease. When not addressed and healed, conditions such as PTSD or Codependency can cause relapse by triggering the urge to use. We believe in a comprehensive, holistic approach to healing all issues—mental or physical. As such our protocols also involve treating co-existing conditions. Below are the conditions we treat alone, or concurrently with drug or alcohol addiction.
Holistic codependency recovery is important because if you look behind addictions, beliefs, behaviors, disempowering and self-destructive thoughts, and many mental disorders, you will find codependency at their core. This term is now familiar in mainstream treatment modalities, but what is it exactly? Common definitions of codependency include: a person who is a caretaker, a martyr, or someone married to an addict. Yes, codependency can be this, but it is so much more. Just like addictions that are are left untreated, if codependency isn’t identified and treated, it can kill.

PTSD is a psychological disorder that can develop after witnessing, or experiencing, a traumatic event. Common causes of PTSD include: rape, child abuse, war, terrorism, assault, and natural disasters. Common symptoms of this mental health condition include frequent flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, reliving and/or feeling as though the event is happening in present day, an uncontrollable temper, trouble sleeping, feeling distant or disconnected from people, as well as avoiding talking about the event. Although symptoms may strike at any moment, they typically occur when the person is reminded of the traumatic event in some manner.

Depression can consume a life. It depletes your emotional, mental, and physical energy; fills you with agonizing thoughts and feelings; and appears so overwhelmingly paralyzing at times that living life can seem unthinkable. Depression disorder can last years or decades with feelings of no escape.
Depression is often attributed to a chemical imbalance in the brain. Those living with chronic depression may consistently try to break out of the downward spiral yet, despite best efforts, may continue to struggle with recurring bouts. While common, there is scientific evidence that shows a chemical imbalance may not always present. If medication doesn’t not feel like the best course of action, there are still ways to change the brain and recover.

Anxiety is part of our body’s natural survival mechanism. Also known as the stress response, anxiety is our body signaling us that we should tread cautiously because something potentially threatening is happening or about to happen. It puts us on alert and makes us more observant. It also triggers our body to prepare to take action if necessary—beginning the ‘fight or flight’ response. Anxiety complications leave us living in that elevated state of stress, even when the threat is neutralized or non-existent. Left untreated, the brain will adapt itself to constantly scan for danger and be prepared to save our life if necessary. Hyper-vigilance is also accompanied by anxiety, and eventually complete exhaustion, considering no living organism is designed to live in a perpetual state of stress. The brain does not differentiate between a perceived threat and a real threat. As part of the unconscious mind, the limbic brain is not healed through rational thought. It is not uncommon for a person to not know or even recognize the cause of the anxiety.
