Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Australia’s only privately owned holistic addiction and mental health provider, The Australian Addiction and Trauma Treatment Centre, has recently experienced a significant increase in demand for their alcohol & drug rehab services. Natural healing advocate and Director Mr. David Godden says, “Over the past 12 months we’ve seen a 50% jump in enquiries for those seeking an alternative approach to the existing medical model.”
Alongside the high levels of stress experienced by many in western society today, the need for effective healing therapies is also on the rise. Despite the current medical industry’s good intentions, simply medicating patients as a first step can cause serious side effects and won’t always resolve the issue.
Looking to remedy addiction and trauma issues without immediately calling for traditional medication is Australian Addiction and Trauma Centre. Their goal is to assist anyone seeking a holistic approach with long-term results to heal substance abuse and mental health issues.
The centre proudly claims to be Australia’s only privately owned, holistic addiction and mental health provider. Mr. Godden further explains, “Our centre cares for addiction and psychological trauma in a very different way in terms of treatment. The program is designed around a more natural, holistic approach.”
Mr. Godden states that his centre’s modalities are distinctly dissimilar to “the current medial models that use medication as the first step for intervention for depression, anxiety, addiction and metal health issues.” The Director goes on to say that most of their client’s have existing mental health issues so their aim is to “give patients a long-lasting and healthy alternative to today’s treatment standard.”
He continues, “Although pharmaceutical companies have a lot of influence on the pace, the move away from traditional medicine is happening, albeit slow. We’re amongst the forerunners leading the charge to effective alternative and holistic treatment.”
The Australian Addiction and Trauma Centre, which is the only of its kind to offer rural surrounds opposed to a clinical hospital setting, says their most successful service is the “integrated treatment plan, designed to best suit the individual.” Mr. Godden adds, “this is by far the most requested service and at this stage we are unable to meet demand.”
As a result, the centre has seen their enquiries increase by 50% over the past year. That demand is a result of growing awareness, plus the alcohol & drug rehab centre’s presence at “a medical centre in Byron Bay which focuses on integrated health care.”
Mr. Godden says the major benefits of using holistic therapies are “its ability to be dynamic, the plan can change based on the outcomes of regular meetings between therapists and clients.” He also says it “treats all the underlying issues rather than just focusing on one specific concern.”
Lastly, the Director emphasizes that “the absence of initial chemical intervention is really the cornerstone of our program. We believe medicating is the last step, not the first. It allows for the person’s mind and body to attempt to heal itself first.”
The rising demand for natural healing modalities over the past 12 months has increased enquiries by another half at The Australian Addiction and Trauma Centre. As a result, the centre has had to employ additional psychologists, naturopaths and an Art Therapist. They’ve also had to look to “establish a further three dwellings to accommodate the interest we have received.” To learn more about the holistic alcohol & drug rehab services available, please visit: http://traumatreatmentcentre.com.au/
