Modern medicine often treats one symptom at a time. While this is successful for many types of healing, for teens struggling with addiction and mental health, a holistic approach can offer profound healing. Programs across the United States combine various evidence-based and alternative therapies with medications and clinical support to help people, not just their symptoms heal. The benefits of holistic healing are beneficial for teenage boys. As such, there are programs around the country and here in North Carolina ready to provide holistic healing for teen boys.

What Is Holistic Healing For Teenage Boys?
Holistic healing addresses physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. This is different from the standard western approach of assessing individual organs, behaviors, moods, and symptoms. Highly specialized medicine can be instrumental in many kinds of healing. However, holistic approaches can be more effective for addiction and mental health. Studies show that at least half of teenage boys living with substance, process addictions, or disordered eating also live with co-occurring disorders. Anxiety, depression, ADHD, and OCD can all contribute to addictive behaviors. Dual diagnosis treatment and holistic healing approach all factors and symptoms and how they are connected. Holistic health considers mind, body, and spirit as equal components of optimal health. Some holistic modalities include:
- Equine-assisted therapy
- Tai Chi
- Music, dance, and art therapy
For teenagers, every day presents unique challenges. Hormones and social life can shift moods and behaviors quickly. Holistic approaches help look at the big picture of a teenager’s life and how each aspect of their day influences their wellbeing. This approach is highly individualized and adaptable. Many holistic modalities can provide lifelong support.
Benefits of Holistic Healing for Young Males
Adolescents face immense stress and social challenges as they cope with the pressure to succeed and achieve a certain masculine image. Unfortunately, many teen boys don’t fit the culture’s picture of masculinity, leading to immense stress, mood disorders, and substance abuse. Holistic modalities provide coping tools, stress relief, and actionable steps teens can take into adulthood. By combining evidence-based and alternative therapies, teens receive a well-rounded healing experience.
Every teenage boy needs his own approach to stress relief, health, and healing. Holistic modalities give adolescent boys the agency to try different modalities and find the right practices for them. This alone can be deeply healing and help teen boys build boundaries, improve communication, and realize what works for them.
