The Process Recovery Center is pleased to be a provider of non-medication-based drug and alcohol addiction treatment in the Southern New Hampshire and Greater Boston region. At our Hudson, New Hampshire drug rehab, we employ a variety of techniques to aid in your recovery, including this noninvasive, non-medication-based treatment as an addition to your PHP or IOP program participation.
Deep Breathwork for addiction recovery is a simple breathing technique that assists in processing trauma, developing healthier thought patterns, and creating a new perspective on old behavior. This two-stage rhythm helps calm the brain and allows clients to experience a more tangible connection to their bodies. This practice allows clients to become more aware of buried emotion and deep-seated trauma while identifying the necessary steps toward healing those wounds. Because breathwork doesn’t depend on conscious thought, it is able to successfully circumnavigate the defense mechanisms and roadblocks typically encountered during conventional talk therapy and, often after just one session, clients are able to see and feel the nurturing effects.
Deep Breathwork has been used for thousands of years around the world to cultivate awareness, invigorate and restore energy centers in the body, and improve physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In a Deep Breathwork session, you will explore the breath and learn how it affects and reflects specific patterns in your life. We offer this powerful breathing technique in our New Hampshire drug and alcohol rehabilitation center because it provides profound efficacy at helping clients become mindful of — and eventually bypass — the issues that prevent them from dealing with suppressed emotion and trauma in a healthy way.
Deep Breathwork oxygenates the hypothalamus gland and releases endorphins and neuropeptides, which create a feeling of peace and well-being, and helps clients access parts of themselves that have been kept buried their entire lifetimes. The technique also stimulates the vagus nerve, which helps combat anxiety and pull clients out of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. This technique helps get the nervous system back into regulation from the dysregulated state which often accompanies the experience of trauma.
Deep Breathwork is often called an active meditation, but we assure you it does NOT require you to sit silently. Deep Breathwork is where deep work gets done; we drudge up the deep stuff so it can no longer control our behavior unconsciously. It’s confronting. It’s not about avoiding the water – it’s about learning to boldly navigate the waves.
