For many drug and alcohol users, the initial rigors of the addiction treatment process – detoxification and fears associated with it – are enough to deter entry into a rehabilitation program altogether.
TTC Care understands this reluctance because to rid the body of the toxins caused by substance addiction can be physically challenging. The body and the brain need to be brought back to a pre-addictive state to regenerate health at the cellular level.
Our accredited medical practitioners empathize with patients and their loved ones. The discomfort is real – whether it physical, emotional or spiritual – and we do what we can to promote healing in a manner that is thorough and effective.
Laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, combines leading-edge technology with proven techniques from Chinese medicine. The result is a mode of complementary therapy that can not only lessen the severity of alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms, but shorten their duration.
Laser Therapy Works on Pain at Its Source
When a patient is recommended to undergo laser therapy and elects to do so, each session usually lasts for less than an hour. Once made comfortable, the laser therapist takes note of the specific areas of pain described by the patient and reviews other information provided by the doctor handling his or her care.
A laser light works in conjunction with acupuncture and sends a cold beam onto the area of pain. The laser can be focused on 40 different points of energy located in the hands, feet and ears.
The body responds to the light naturally, causing a cellular reaction. Inflammation from the area is reduced, minimizing the existing pain so the area can heal. The sooner the body can heal, the better equipped a patient will be to focus on emotional and spiritual healing.
Low-Level Laser Therapy Stimulates Endorphins
Throughout the procedure, the low-level laser beam sets off the release of endorphins from the brain, increasing the amount of endorphins actively circulating in the system. This fosters relaxation and pain relief, simultaneously. Research has found many benefits in the use of laser light therapy for the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, as the treatment further stimulates the removal of bodily toxins.
Laser Light Therapy Minimizes Withdrawal Symptoms
The actual detox experience differs from patient to patient. Variables include the type of substance abuse involved, the physical and emotional condition of the patient, and the duration of the addiction.
Treatment with laser light therapy can remove or provide relief from the following withdrawal symptoms:
- Substance cravings
Holistic Healing Brings Positivity to Life
A central ideology that TTC Care – based in the West Palm Beach area of Florida – embraces is fostering healing and hope in each patient through exemplary care while providing the tools necessary to maintain optimal health for a lifetime.
