Holistic Addiction Treatment in Orange County

At SoCal Sunrise, we understand the complex nature of addiction and the importance of addressing not only the physical aspects of the disease but also the emotional, psychological, and spiritual components.

Why Holistic Treatment is Helpful for Addiction Recovery

Holistic addiction treatment acknowledges the complex nature of addiction. It recognizes that addiction is a multifaceted disease with multiple contributing factors, such as genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and personal experiences. 

By treating the whole person, holistic recovery aims to address the root causes of addiction and provide clients with the tools and support they need to achieve lasting recovery. One of the primary advantages of holistic addiction treatment is its focus on the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit. This approach considers the impact of addiction on various aspects of an individual’s life, such as physical health, emotional well-being, relationships, and personal beliefs. 

In contrast, non-holistic approaches to addiction treatment tend to focus solely on addressing the physical symptoms of addiction, such as withdrawal and cravings, often neglecting the underlying emotional and psychological factors that contribute to the disease.

Holistic treatment seeks to promote overall wellness by combining evidence-based therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication-assisted treatment (MAT), with complementary therapies, such as yoga, meditation, and nutrition counseling, to create a well-rounded and individualized treatment plan. 

The holistic treatment approach recognizes that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to addiction recovery and that each individual requires a tailored approach to treatment that addresses their specific needs and goals.

Holistic Addiction Treatment Modalities Offered at SoCal Sunrise

As we delve into the various treatment modalities offered at SoCal Sunrise, you will see how our holistic approach addresses the multiple aspects of addiction recovery. By providing clients with a diverse range of therapeutic options, we ensure that each client’s unique needs and goals are addressed, resulting in a more comprehensive and successful recovery experience.

Here are some of the holistic addiction treatment programs that you will find at SoCal Sunrise:


Many individuals struggling with addiction also experience mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, or trauma. Dual-diagnosis is the process of identifying and treating both the addiction and any co-occurring mental health disorders. 

At SoCal Sunrise, our experienced staff is trained to identify and address these co-occurring disorders, ensuring that our clients receive the appropriate care and support needed for their unique situation. Our integrated approach to dual-diagnosis ensures that clients receive comprehensive care that addresses both their addiction and mental health concerns, increasing their chances of achieving lasting recovery.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an essential component of holistic addiction treatment, providing clients with the opportunity to connect with others who are facing similar challenges. At SoCal Sunrise, our group therapy sessions are designed to foster a supportive and nonjudgmental environment where clients can share their experiences, learn from one another, and develop healthy coping strategies. 

Yoga & Fitness

Physical wellness plays an essential role in holistic addiction treatment, and at SoCal Sunrise, we offer a variety of fitness and wellness programs to support our clients’ physical health. Our yoga classes for addiction recovery, led by certified instructors, are designed to help clients build strength, increase flexibility, and improve their overall well-being. We also offer specialized fitness programs, such as outdoor activities and personal training sessions, to help clients develop a sustainable exercise routine that supports their recovery journey.

Guided Meditation

Meditation has been shown to reduce stress, improve focus, and promote emotional well-being. At SoCal Sunrise, our guided meditation sessions provide clients with the tools and techniques needed to cultivate mindfulness and develop a regular meditation practice. 

Our meditation instructors teach clients various meditation styles, such as mindfulness meditation, loving-kindness meditation, and body scan meditation, allowing them to explore different techniques and find the approach that works best for them.

One-On-One Psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy sessions provide clients with a private space to explore the underlying issues contributing to their addiction. At SoCal Sunrise, our licensed therapists are trained in a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). 

Our therapists work with clients to develop personalized treatment plans based on their specific needs and goals, helping them gain insight into the emotional and psychological factors that have contributed to their addiction and develop healthy coping strategies for overcoming these challenges.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creative arts therapy utilizes various forms of artistic expression, such as painting, drawing, music, and dance, to facilitate emotional healing and personal growth. At SoCal Sunrise, our creative arts therapy sessions provide clients with a non-verbal outlet for processing complex emotions, exploring their inner selves, and building self-esteem. Our certified art therapists guide clients through various creative exercises and projects, helping them express their thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

In some cases, medication can play a crucial role in the addiction recovery process. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) utilizes FDA-approved medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, in conjunction with counseling and other therapies to help clients manage withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and support long-term recovery. At SoCal Sunrise, our medical team carefully evaluates each client to determine if MAT is an appropriate part of their treatment plan, considering factors such as the severity of the addiction, the client’s medical history, and their personal preferences.

Medication Management

For clients with co-occurring mental health disorders or other medical conditions, medication management is an essential component of their treatment plan. Our medical team at SoCal Sunrise works closely with clients to ensure that their medications are effectively managing their symptoms and not causing negative interactions with other medications or therapies. Our medication management program includes regular assessments, monitoring for potential side effects, and adjustments to medication regimens as needed to optimize each client’s overall well-being.

12-Step Programs

Twelve-step programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, provide a structured framework for addiction recovery and emphasize the importance of peer support. 

We incorporate 12-step principles into our holistic treatment program and encourage clients to attend meetings and connect with a sponsor. We also offer additional support for clients participating in 12-step programs, such as workshops on the 12 steps, group discussions focused on specific steps, and opportunities for clients to engage in service work within the recovery community.

Qualities to Look for in an Addiction Treatment Facility

When searching for the right addiction treatment facility, it’s essential to consider the following qualities to ensure you or your loved one receives the highest level of care and support:

  • Comprehensive and Individualized Treatment: A quality holistic addiction treatment facility should offer a wide range of evidence-based therapies and treatments, tailored to each client’s unique needs and goals. Look for facilities that provide a multidisciplinary approach, combining medical, psychological, and complementary therapies to address the whole person.
  • Experienced and Compassionate Staff: The staff at a treatment facility should be highly trained and dedicated to providing compassionate, client-centered care. Look for facilities with a low staff-to-client ratio, which ensures that clients receive the personalized attention they need.
  • A Focus on Holistic Recovery: A facility that emphasizes holistic addiction treatment will address the whole person, not just the symptoms of addiction. Look for programs that incorporate various complementary therapies, such as yoga, meditation, and art therapy, in addition to evidence-based treatments.
  • Accreditation and Licensing: Ensure that the facility you choose is accredited by reputable organizations, such as The Joint Commission or the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), and licensed by the state in which it operates. These accreditations and licenses ensure that the facility meets high standards of care and adheres to best practices in addiction treatment.

Aftercare and Support: A quality holistic addiction treatment facility will prioritize long-term recovery by offering aftercare services and ongoing support for clients once they complete treatment. Look for facilities that provide alumni programs, continuing care groups, and resources for clients to stay connected and engaged in their recovery journey.
