Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is one of the most common forms of substance abuse. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in 2022, “29.5 million people ages 12 and older (10.5% in this age group) had AUD.” Individuals who feel unable to stop drinking alcohol despite negative health or social consequences may have an alcohol addiction. The experts at The Redpoint Center use personalized treatment and evidence-based methods to provide help for alcohol addiction.  

Getting Help for Alcohol Addiction in Colorado

Most people are unaware of the recommended limits for alcohol use and don’t know how to recognize the signs of alcohol addiction. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “[A]dults of legal drinking age can choose not to drink, or to drink in moderation by limiting intake to 2 drinks or less in a day for men or 1 drink or less in a day for women.” Drinking over the recommended limit increases the risk of dependency and addiction. 

People with AUD often experience the following: 

  • Drinking alcohol more or for longer than intended 
  • Experiencing work problems due to drinking alcohol
  • Drinking alcohol instead of spending time with friends or engaging in previously enjoyed activities 
  • Relationship issues caused by drinking alcohol 

Alcohol abuse impacts relationships, physical health, cognition, and quality of life. Professional mental health treatment provides people with a safe way to address AUD. Many different treatment methods help people heal from the effects of AUD. Holistic therapies, spending time in nature, and evidence-based treatments like psychotherapy all play a role in helping people recover from substance abuse.

The Healing Effects of Nature

The Redpoint Center is located in beautiful Colorado. A gorgeous natural landscape surrounds the facility. Research has shown spending time in and around nature increases the effectiveness of therapy and other forms of treatment. According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Exposure to natural environments has been linked with decreases in anxiety and rumination, which are associated with negative mental health outcomes, such as depression and anxiety.”

Spending significant time in and around nature also does the following: 

  • Reduces stress 
  • Stabilizes moods 
  • Lowers blood pressure 
  • Reduces symptoms associated with AUD and mental health disorders 

Recovery from chronic alcohol abuse is often easier when people participate in treatment programs conducted in or near nature. The Colorado countryside around The Redpoint Center offers a stunning view and plenty of healthy outdoor activities. 

How Does Spiritual Support Encourage People to Get Help for Alcohol Addiction?

Spending time in and around nature is also helpful for facilitating spiritual healing. Many people recovering from alcohol abuse experience physical, emotional, and spiritual side effects impacting their overall well-being. The Redpoint Center uses a whole-person approach to care that addresses all areas of a person’s life affected by substance abuse. Spiritual healing is a part of the journey for many people in recovery. 

The Benefits of a Whole-Person Approach to Treatment

A whole-person approach to treatment ensures the care team considers all factors impacting a person’s sobriety and well-being. According to BMJ Open, “The importance of ‘whole person’ or ‘holistic’ care is widely [recognized], particularly with an increasing prevalence of chronic multimorbidity.” By providing multiple levels of support, the care team ensures clients feel prepared to manage their condition once they complete treatment. 

A few benefits of a whole-person approach to care include: 

  • More comprehensive treatment 
  • Better communication between clients and the clinical team 
  • Reduced risk of relapse or other complications in recovery 
  • Greater trust and reliance on the care team 
  • More active engagement in treatment

Personalized care planning is an essential part of a whole-person approach to treatment. The Redpoint Center establishes trust with clients from day one to ensure people feel comfortable communicating their needs, preferences, and personal recovery goals. Tailored care plans make adjusting treatment as needed and monitoring overall progress easier.
