Detox which is short for ‘Detoxification’ is a comprehensive rehabilitation program that is specially designed for helping patients with addiction problems in getting rid of it.
After a patient decides to give up his addiction, it becomes necessary to prevent the adverse or sometimes fatal complications that may arise from the sudden halt of addictive substances.
However, it is a common observation that addiction programs for drug dependence rarely deal with the ‘actual’ reason that led the patient to become addicted in the first place. These reasons may vary from being social, psychological, and other behavioral factors that are the root of the patient’s problem.
Fortunately, the Holistic sanctuary is an exclusive holistic detox center that supports and guides patients throughout their detox journey as well as deals with concurrent illnesses like depression and PTSD which might be the root cause of their addiction.
The principle of any detox program according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is the initial focus on stabilization of the patient followed by continuous monitoring and support to manage the various adverse reactions as the drug leaves the body and the patient can then be transitioned to the long-term care of addiction. Therefore, the key aim of the Holistic Sanctuary is to help patients work through their trauma and overcome their addiction with complete physical, psychological, and spiritual healing.
Detox programs can be divided into two types based on where the treatment takes place. Choosing the correct type for each patient depends on the particular substance of abuse used along with its anticipated withdrawal symptoms. The different choices include:
Outpatient detox treatment, although rarely recommended, might be used for relatively less dangerous cases of addiction. In such cases, repeated follow-ups with the physician along with medication can be sufficient in managing the detoxification. Outpatient treatment may be helpful for patients with financial difficulties or those too busy with work and unable to regularly attend a detox clinic.
The majority of cases are treated at inpatient detox centers which are more effective in avoiding relapse and ensure that the patient can receive timely medical care in case of an emergency. A few independent programs such as the Holistic Sanctuary also offer a programmed, smooth transition journey following initial detox, for patients to complete the rest of their substance abuse management. Their inpatient program also offers treatment of additional psychological or medical issues that may be the root of their addiction.
The drug and alcohol rehabilitation program offered by the Holistic Sanctuary is very different from other conventional rehab centers. The Holistic Sanctuary has designed a unique and advanced program using ancient science-based healing methods which are entirely natural with no addictive or toxic drugs involved. The program does not believe in group therapy sessions and the use of one treatment method for all its patients.
The experts at the Holistic sanctuary realize that the treatment of addiction should be personalized for every patient and that the same methods may not help everyone. Therefore their program consists of personal one-on-one therapy sessions for each patient with clients receiving more than 150 hours of private sessions per month. These sessions along with daily IV therapy for detox, massage, yoga, reiki, colonic and liver detox, pure oxygen infusions, motivational counseling, as well as numerous other treatments and amenities are combined to formulate a perfect plan for their patients.
The main goal of The Holistic Sanctuary is repairing the body at a cellular level to completely heal them and this is achieved through the stem cell activation protocol used to increase the healing ability of cells in the body. Patients enrolled in this detox program receive all these above facilities and much more. Through this plan, the Holistic Sanctuary aims to increase cellular regeneration, form new neural pathways, and essentially teach patients to reprogram the negative and harmful thoughts that lead to their addictions and to live a new and holistically healthy life.
The methods of detox developed by the Holistic Sanctuary have shown a 90% success rate and have been extremely helpful to those suffering from heroin, methadone, benzodiazepine, cocaine, alcohol, and other substance abuse.
The reason behind their success is the incorporation of several different effective treatments in their plan instead of using the same single treatment plan on every patient.
Some of the main treatment methods employed by the Holistic Sanctuary are described below:
The Pouyan Method is one of the most revolutionary methods devised by the Holistic Sanctuary and is a novel approach to treating Addiction, depression, PTSD, and other issues that can lead to substance abuse.
This Pouyan Method consists of a combination of ancient plant medicine, evidence-based, holistic medicine as well as other targeted methods that work to detoxify harmful drugs and chemicals at the cellular level of the patient’s body.
This innovatively wholesome method not only helps with detoxification, but also helps strengthen and boost the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems along with healing the mind, body, and soul.
The method consists of detoxifying the body with a plant-based diet that nourishes the body and boosts the production of serotonin. A diet plan consisting of 100% organic, non-GMO, gluten, dairy, and soy-free food along with a juice cleanse is created for each patient. This creates an alkaline environment in the body and assists in destroying parasites and candida present in the body. Organic green coffee enemas are also included in the diet to help repair and detox the liver and boost the synthesis of glutathione.
An IV based formulation is also used to reset the GABA receptors and decalcify the pineal gland which allows the plant-based medicine to better detoxify the cells. Additionally, oxygen hyperbaric chambers may be used to boost the healing ability of the body and promote stem cell production within the body.
Finally, the Pouyan method is combined with Ibogaine treatment which is a natural, non-addictive chemical derived from plants. However, this part of the treatment is not started immediately as it is not helpful at an early stage.
The above treatment methods are continued for 20 days to prepare the body for ibogaine treatment. Ibogaine treatment has shown to significantly decrease withdrawal symptoms with just a single dose.
The Holistic Sanctuary has successfully created comprehensive brain repair protocols which is a powerful tool in treating addiction as well as pre-existing mental disorders like depression and PTSD. It is an entirely natural process without the use of any prescription medicine that may have harmful side-effects. This is a holistic approach that helps remove any leftover drugs from the body and brings the brain to its pre-addicted state as well as targets the root cause of addiction.
Last but not the least, the Holistic Sanctuary always aims to achieve complete rehabilitation along with complete physical and psychological healing. Their exclusively natural and holistic treatment methods aim to provide full and permanent recovery with no chance of relapse. Since both treatment and response can differ with each person the Holistic Sanctuary combines different treatment methods according to the needs of the person to allow proper healing.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the duration of a detox program lasts for as long as it takes to psychologically and physically stabilize the patient. Therefore the total duration required can vary from person to person and consultation with experts can help the patient in choosing the program most beneficial to them.
The minimum staying period at The Holistic Sanctuary is for 4 weeks which includes 140+ hours of one on one therapy, Ibogaine treatment, medical detox with a proper diet plan as well as on-hand doctors.
The Holistic Sanctuary offers multiple programs and the patients should consult with detox experts beforehand and decide which programs will help them reach their goals.
The packages vary in price according to duration and amenities at an approximate cost of:
A 7-day plant medicine retreat, a 10 days life extension program, and an all-inclusive 4 weeks plan are also available for $20K, $45K, and $100K respectively.
According to research, the first six months after detox are critical as most relapses occur in this duration and the patient should therefore be counseled regarding his triggers so they can proactively avoid them. The Holistic Sanctuary strives to achieve complete healing of its patients, however, some, especially long-term addicts with severe drug dependency, may require aftercare to prevent relapse. Such patients have been suffering from substance abuse for so long and to fully recover they need a safer environment with healthier habits after the initial detox treatment. This may take months to years depending on the severity of dependence and patient compliance. Fortunately, the experts at Holistic Sanctuary, unlike other rehab centers, make sure to provide their patients with a proper aftercare plan with access to all the help a person may need to complete their detox treatment.
Drugs work by suppressing brain activity and detox removes this suppression which leads to a brain reaction of a surge of neurotransmitter release like noradrenaline that causes withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal can vary in symptoms and intensity according to the drug and from person to person.
Some common symptoms are listed below:
Some specific and severe symptoms associated with alcohol and benzodiazepines include grand mal seizures, heart attacks, strokes, hallucinations, and delirium tremens. However, proper treatment and management can reduce the effect of such withdrawal symptoms and help patients get through the treatment.
