Biophysical Drug Rehab

Substance abuse leaves a semi-permanent mark on the body. Toxins from drugs and alcohol remain in fatty tissues for a decade or longer, and they can affect a person physically, mentally, physiologically, and emotionally. The damage caused by toxins occurs on a cellular level. Many believe biophysical rehabilitation needs to address the damage that substance abuse causes on the cellular level for  rehab to be successful.

As the level of toxins from drug or alcohol use rises, the effects they have on the body rise, too. Several chemical and biochemical processes within the body are altered by these toxins. Toxins impede the body’s ability to detox successfully. For example, the kidney and liver, two organs that play major roles in the detoxification process, are typically damaged (often severely) by drug and alcohol toxins. As such, the body is not able to properly detoxify, making it much more difficult for a patient to recover.

Biophysical drug rehab aims to help the body regain its balance and to reduce drug and alcohol cravings.

The History of Biophysical Treatment

Biophysical drug rehab has been used as a treatment for drug and alcohol addiction for nearly four decades. For an addict to achieve lasting sobriety, treatment has to take place on a physical and cellular level. The health of the human body is based on the total well-being of the individual, physically, mentally, and socially; not just through  the absence of drugs or alcohol. Scientists report that drugs cause a metabolic change making it difficult for an addict to reduce cravings. Biophysical rehab aims to not just achieve sobriety, but to also teach the state of mind and practices that are needed for an addict to attain the best possible health.

According to proponents of the biophysical drug rehab treatment model, when detoxification occurs on a cellular level, both the physical and mental cravings for the substance will stop completely.

Biophysical drug rehab is considered a non-traditional treatment model. It does not involve 12-steps, like so many other treatment programs do, but rather, it is a holistic model. Conventional treatment models believe that drug or alcohol addiction is incurable; it is a lifelong battle. However, biophysical rehab experts believes addiction can be completely treated.

What to Expect

Typically, a biophysical drug rehab program lasts about 90 days. This time period affords plenty of time to address and treat the physical and mental addiction of the patient.

The first half of the treatment period focuses on the physical body. It involves detoxification and withdrawal, which is done under the supervision of highly trained professionals. The second part of treatment focuses on the mentality of the patient, as addiction is not just physical, but mental, as well; in fact, it’s more mental than it is physical. The treatment that the patient undergoes during the second part of a biophysical drug rehab program is completely in a non-twelve step method, which recognizes that the individual is made up of all of his or her parts, and that all of these parts must be treated in order to attain sobriety. Twelve-step programs focus on treating just the addiction; however, biophysical rehab takes a holistic approach, meaning that it focuses on treating the entire person; mind, body, and soul.

Methods Used in Biophysical Rehab

No medications or drug-replacement therapies are used during biophysical rehab; instead, this treatment program focuses on all-natural therapies. Methods vary, but can include:

  • Exercise, which helps the body release the buildup of toxins that are stored within the fatty tissues and cells.
  • Supplements, which replace the vital nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fatty acids that are severely depleted as a result of addiction.
  • Counseling, which can include one-on-one and group sessions
  • Prevention through education

Success Rates of Biophysical Drug Rehab

It’s estimated that, on average, biophysical drug rehab has a success rate as high as 70%. In fact, it is believed that this type of treatment has one of the highest success rates. Biophysical drug rehab is considered a safe and effective way to handle substance abuse.
