The initial stages of addiction recovery are physically and emotionally taxing. The body and the brain need time to heal and revert back to normal stasis without a constant flow of drugs or alcohol. This change almost always means long-term withdrawal symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. Any quality addiction treatment facility should incorporate the management of short-term and long-term physiological symptoms as part of their overall treatment strategy. This includes offering every possible therapy to help patients heal, mind, body and soul.

Aromatherapy entails the olfactory exposure to certain essential plant oils that have been found to produce clinically beneficial results, including stress reduction, relaxation, muscle healing and increased energy. It first arrived in the clinical landscape in 1937 when a French chemist revealed certain plants’ power to manage the physiological symptoms of a variety of ailments.
