A Holistic and Revolutionary Approach to Addiction Recovery with Luke DeBoy

Jul 11, 2023

In this fascinating interview on the Wellness Center Creators podcast, therapist Luke Dubois shares his journey from athletic training to becoming a certified addiction counselor. With a holistic and integrative approach to treatment, Luke's practice, Recovery Collective, offers a groundbreaking approach that addresses psychological, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs simultaneously.

Despite efforts to achieve freedom from addiction, those suffering from substance use disorder may find themselves repeatedly succumbing to cravings, relapses, and overwhelming emotions. The traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment may not address the root causes of addiction or provide the necessary tools to heal holistically. Today we explore a comprehensive, integrative treatment approach that considers physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, paving the way for a truly transformative recovery journey.

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Discover a fresh take on combating addiction with revolutionary recovery and therapy approaches.
