Massage Therapy & Aftercare
For some clients, the benefits of massage therapy extend beyond medical detox and residential inpatient treatment. This is especially true for clients who are looking for non-invasive ways to cope with chronic pain and other chronic health conditions. At Guardian Recovery Network we work closely with numerous licensed massage therapists in Maine, New Hampshire, Colorado, South Florida and New Jersey. We are happy to recommend a reputable massage therapist with a personal background in substance abuse recovery to anyone in need. If a client experiences immense relief from massage therapy while he or she is in residential inpatient, Partial Hospitalization or Intensive Outpatient Treatment, massage therapy would probably be beneficial on an ongoing basis. Our Case Managers can help incorporate this into an individual’s personalized aftercare plan.
An Integrative Approach to Recovery
At Guardian Recovery Network we combine intensive therapeutic care, the 12-steps and a range of proven holistic techniques in order to provide our clients with the most integrated care available. While massage therapy is not equally as effective for each individual client, it can serve as an important part of a comprehensive treatment program. Massage therapy is especially beneficial for men and women who struggle with unresolved trauma or who developed a painkiller addiction after being prescribed it for a chronic pain-related condition. Pain management is an important piece of the recovery puzzle, and massage therapy often proves to be a major player.
Active addiction is a unique experience for every one of our clients, and because of this, no two recovery programs are identical. If a client finds that massage therapy is especially beneficial, he or she will have increased access to this specific service, and ongoing massage therapy will be incorporated as part of his or her aftercare plan.
