Why AKUAAt Akua Mind & Body, we combine treatment for the mind, body, and spirit into a holistic therapeutic method in beautiful Southern California. Blending clinical excellence with a healing and rejuvenating holistic environment, we have created a detoxification approach fusing the latest advances in addiction medicine with comfort. Akua is more than a hospital or a residential facility; it is a revitalizing detoxification retreat for those who need assistance in dealing with drug or alcohol addictions. Our integrative approach combines physical, psychological, spiritual, and science-based approaches to achieve not only detoxification but a solid foundation for recovery. Our goal is for you to emerge from your stay at our high-end treatment facility in Orange County with the tools you need to confront drug and alcohol dependency. We enable you to do this through the following methods:
Through the Mind:
- Individual and group psychotherapy sessions enable clients to confront deep-seated issues that contribute to dependent and self-destructive behaviors.
- Meditation teaches clients to find a calm, relaxing central point within the body
- Self-help groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous and Al-Anon, provide needed support in the “real world” once clients leave our facility.
- Hypnotherapy is used to help build a compendium of coping skills to avoid future addictive behaviors.
- Life purpose coaching is designed to help clients set small goals based on future plans.
