It’s a word used so frequently in so many contexts that it seems to have lost its meaning altogether: holistic. It’s a simple concept, but one that means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. So what is holistic addiction treatment? Put simply, it’s treatment that treats the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—using a comprehensive approach. Holistic medicine looks at the big picture, and searches for what works. So what can you expect from holistic addiction treatment at Future Now Detox? Here’s what our holistic approach is all about.
Holistic Medicine: A Comprehensive Approachdrug & alcohol addiction
When you go to the doctor with a complaint, you typically have to go to a doctor who specializes in that area of the body. And that doctor might not ask about other symptoms. For instance, if you have chronic stomach problems, your doctor might not ask about your stress, about your nutrition, or about how much you exercise.
Holistic medicine is the evidence-based assertion that this piecemeal approach doesn’t work. People are more than the sum of their parts. Treating just one component of one problem is a recipe for failure. It’s the same with addiction.
Addiction is never just about the addiction. People become addicted to alcohol and drugs for many reasons. Our holistic approach works to identify these reasons, then treat them so that they no longer feed a person’s life-threatening addiction. In so doing, we support people to achieve lasting sobriety, complete recovery, and lives of purpose and meaning.
Some of the health problems that often play a role in addiction, and which we actively treat, include:
- Mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
- Stress, trauma, and an unhealthy home or work environment.
- Unexplained chronic pain.
- Gastrointestinal issues.
- Chronic medical issues such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.
We work with your team of doctors to choose treatment protocols that address your medical issues, help you manage your addiction, and that ultimately get you back on track.
Holistic, Not ‘Alternative’: Understanding the Difference
Holistic medicine is often confused with alternative medicine, but the two are distinct. Alternative medicine is an approach to treatment that endorses unusual and non-medically proven treatments. There’s nothing wrong with alternative medicine; some alternative medicine eventually become mainstream. But because alternative medicine is experimental, it’s rarely covered by insurance.
Holistic medicine, by contrast, is an evidence-based approach that uses proven modalities to treat addiction. It’s not experimental. It’s the simple notion that a person has many components, and that without treating each of those components, recovery from addiction is unlikely.

Holistic addiction treatment offers a customized, individually tailored approach to addiction. Your treatment begins with an evaluation that includes a complete medical history and a customized treatment plan. We blend a wide variety of treatments, including chiropractic, massage therapy, yoga, individual experiential treatment, and more. The foundation of our treatment program is the knowledge that a healthy body requires good nutrition. We offer probiotic-rich diets designed to meet your health goals. We also believe we are the only certified clinical inpatient program offering NAD IV infusions. NAD is a coenzyme that naturally occurs in each cell of the body. Addiction can deplete NAD, leading to a host of health problems. By infusing the body with NAD, we can restore the body to health, and greatly reduce the severity of detox while eliminating or greatly reducing the intensity of alcohol and drug cravings. It’s clinically proven treatment, and it works.
