True Holistic Addiction Treatment at InnerBalance Health Center
Truly holistic addiction treatment focuses on repairing the damage done by addiction to the mind, body, spirit and environment. All of these elements of a person’s life need to be brought back into balance for total recovery and success, hence the name InnerBalance Health Center.
Most treatment centers tend to focus on just one of these four crucial elements to try and achieve lifelong sobriety. We have had much more success when tailoring all these holistic elements to the specific needs of an individual. Biochemical repair & restoration help eliminate cravings that lead to addiction. We don’t just treat the symptoms and teach you to cope, we strive to eliminate the source of cravings and prepare you with lifelong tools necessary to stay sober. Recently, some pseudo holistic addiction treatment centers started to offer some components and labeling themselves as holistic but very few take such a comprehensive approach as InnerBalance Health Center which offers a true holistic treatment approach.
Understanding the interaction between mind, body, spirit and environment and how these link to drug and alcohol addiction is the key to our incredible success rate.
True Holistic Addiction Treatment focuses on Mind
We help clients create a psychological shift in the way they think about their alcohol or drug use. They can no longer think that substance use is the solution to their problems, but is actually the cause of their life’s problems. Clients must come to accept they have a condition that means one single drink or use of a drug will lead to a loss of control.
Those struggling with addiction often wrongly believe that they can handle just one drink or handle using drugs just a little bit. The thought that they can stop after just a few, that everything will be fine, leads to the decision to pick up that first drink or drug.
At InnerBalance, our true holistic addiction treatment approach helps clients begin to replace negative thoughts about self and life with more constructive positive thoughts. Through counseling, clients can rediscover confidence and hope.
True Holistic Addiction Treatment focuses on Body
Untreated existing health conditions often cause individuals to self medicate with drugs and alcohol. This is were most treatment centers fall short. At InnerBalance we identify and heal these biochemical imbalances.
Examples of health conditions that affect addiction:
|• Hormonal imbalances
|• Adrenal Fatigue
|• Amino acid imbalances
|• Excessive heavy metals
|• Nutrient deficiencies
|• Genetic factors
Left untreated, these conditions can cause depression, anxiety, mood swings, racing thoughts, difficulty sleeping, fatigue and cravings for more dugs or alcohol. Our extensive lab testing pinpoints imbalances using vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and powerful natural products. We also utilize holistic addiction treatment approaches such as reiki, microcurrent stimulation, alpha-stim, infrared sauna, etc.
True Holistic Addiction Treatment focuses on Spirit
At InnerBalance when we use the words spirit or spirituality we mean important loving connections in peoples’ lives that give meaning and purpose, such as family, friends, and/or a higher power. Learning to love ourselves, recognizing our worth and also allowing ourselves to be loved are critical aspects to spiritual healing. These loving connections extend to animals, nature and oneself. As addiction progresses, these vital connections are damaged as the drugs become the single most important thing in our lives. The loss of important spiritual connections is also the loss of love, faith and hope.
At InnerBalance our spiritual counselors work to help clients understand these losses and provide tools to repair vital connections so they can feel whole again. As part of our true holistic addiction treatment approach is to repair these vital spiritual connections.
True Holistic Addiction Treatment focuses on Environment
Building a healthy, safe, productive foundation for day to day life outside of treatment is key to total recovery. Before leaving InnerBalance, clients learn to care for themselves and make decisions that benefit and enhance their lives.
Our life coaches help clients develop a strong program that they can follow when they return home. This program includes planning and preparing healthy meals, keeping physically active, staying on beneficial supplements and building strong support systems.
A strong support system is a key component of a healthy environment. Support systems may include Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Life Ring, Women for Sobriety, Cocaine Anonymous, continued individual counseling, family counseling, and church attendance. Our counselors will also help a client evaluate their living arrangements to see what changes are needed, or they might suggest a sober living facility for continued sobriety. This is the core treatment philosophy of most treatment methods such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and is an important pillar in our true holistic addiction treatment center approach.
We use a truly holistic approach to treating addiction.

No, InnerBalance does not prescribe those types of medications, unless needed for temporary stabilization for withdrawal symptoms. We focus on identifying the root causes of cravings, repairing your body’s biochemical imbalances and teaching you the lifelong skills necessary to stay sober.
How does the treatment center plan to eliminate depression, anxiety, sleep problems, mood swings, and racing mind?
At InnerBalance we realize the need to find the root cause of these issues. For example, a racing mind can come from too much histamine in the brain, a condition caused Histadelia. When we find this condition through lab testing, we use the safe amino acids and vitamins that will lower histamine levels. Depression can come from under-functioning neurotransmitters, like serotonin.
Through urine testing, we check the serotonin receptors by looking at the Tryptophan levels, and then treat with the appropriate amino acids. Please call us for a more thorough description on how we can deal with underlying symptoms. These examples just scratch the surface of our biochemical restoration approach which is integral to our holistic treatment philosophy.
Is the treatment center licensed by the state?
Yes, the InnerBalance Health Center is fully and duly licensed by the State of Colorado.
