What Does Akua Mind & Body Believe?We believe in a comfortable, stress-free environment. In fact, we believe that removing stress is one of the most important aspects of recovery, as stress has been shown to impede mental, physical, and emotional well-being. For these reasons, a relaxing, rejuvenating environment is crucial as you begin to rid yourself of drug dependency. At Akua Mind & Body, we understand that you suffer from three types of stress when you arrive at our facility. The amount of each type of stress may vary, but generally you will be suffering from some degree of:
- Physical Stress: The physical stress that your body succumbs to in your addiction is debilitating. Your immune system is most likely suppressed, your blood sugar may be low or high, you may suffer from headaches and other pains, and you may have been suffering from chronic insomnia.
- Mental Stress: Addiction is psychologically stressful for you and for those around you. Arguments with loved ones, the strain of crumbling finances, and worry over your health each create a great deal of mental stress.
- Emotional Stress: Guilt, shame, and other negative emotions are cornerstone feelings of addiction. At Akua Mind & Body, we realize that emotional pain is very real and must be addressed as you move forward in recovery.
