Addiction is a painful experience. If you are struggling with substance abuse, you might feel powerless against your addiction. Fortunately, you are not alone. There are many different tools that are available to help you cope with your addiction. In addition to traditional tools like psychotherapy and medical support, float therapy can help you overcome addiction in a gentle, holistic environment.
What Causes Addiction?
Addiction is a complex issue. Because there are so many different types of addictions (and different types of people who struggle with addiction), it’s impossible to pinpoint a single cause of this condition. However, there are trends that doctors tend to see in many addicts, such as mental health issues and low self-esteem. Because many addictive substances cause the brain to release feel-good hormones like dopamine, they can produce a soothing effect that people with these issues may find comforting.
The Mental Health Benefits of Floating
Floating is a helpful recovery tool for addicts because it helps to regulate hormonal activity in the brain for a relaxed, peaceful state of mind. By promoting the production of chemicals like dopamine and reducing stress hormones such as cortisol, floating can help addicts feel good without turning to harmful substances. Floating also promotes mindfulness by allowing people to reach a meditative state, which can be very helpful for those struggling with their mental health.
