At Holina, we believe that depression can be treated in very similar ways to addiction. Whilst every case is different and individual, it is our believe that by unlocking the spirit and setting people up for a higher purpose that they can get behind and feel inspired by, that they can also change their identity and move forwards into a new path, feel from their debilitating thoughts and feelings.
Very similar to the 12 step recovery program for addictions, by moving people away from their powerlessness of their depression and helping them to discover their true power, which ultimately lies within, and helping them to trust this Power, we have seen people with depressive disease go into remission time after time.
We treat depressive disease with the 12 Step program, fused with Neuro Linguistic Programing to bring about a change in thoughts and behaviours, and then to set people up for a life led by spiritual principles, which may have been neglected by the depression. This newfound freedom from themselves, their thoughts and their feelings gives our residents a glimpse into the possibilities of their own long term recovery solutions, which when repeated over many consecutive days of treatment shows the individual that it’s possible to recover and tap back into the joys of life again, without the overwhelming feelings of dread or gloom or fear.
We also lean heavily on holistic therapies to unlock and unleash the persons emotional and spiritual nature. The holistic practices, particularly when combined with mindfulness and wellness groups, go a very long way in helping people see their true spirit and to realise their own powerful possibilities of serving the greater good – family, community, work, and most importantly, themselves.
