At Akua Mind & Body, we work with clients as part of larger systems. In keeping with the idea of serving the entire person through holistic treatment methods, we extend the holistic idea to encompass a client’s family and friends as well. Our integrative treatment approach combines the physical and spiritual aspects of every client’s well-being. By extension of this approach, we take our treatment protocol outside the client and embrace their family and other addiction professionals to give the client the best chance for recovery. Client: Our initial and primary focus throughout detoxification is the client. Our entire detoxification process is designed to ensure that our clients are free from all drug and alcohol residue and mentally prepared for engaging the deeper addiction issues. We believe that addiction is a complex disease that requires treatment of each aspect of the client’s being in order to be successful. As such, we focus on integrating treatment of the mind, body and spirit. Family: In almost every case, our clients’ family has been deeply affected by their loved one’s drug or alcohol abuse. Not only do family members suffer when a loved one is addicted, but they may also unintentionally enable addictive behaviors in an honest attempt to try to save or rescue their loved one. At Akua Mind & Body, we feel it is our job to ensure that our clients’ family is included in the recovery process, empowering and educating them about addiction and their role in their loved one’s addiction. Clinical Professionals: At Akua Mind & Body, we believe in a team approach. We use every opportunity to partner with clinical professionals who may have referred a client to Akua for detoxification or who may be continuing the treatment protocols with our clients once detoxification is complete. Working alongside other addiction experts ensures that our clients receive seamless care from the moment they enter our facility until the time they leave.
