The holistic approach to addiction recovery has led to many new ways to help treat addiction. The word addiction is derived from the Latin forms of “enslaved by” or “bound to”. For most of us, we didn’t even realize that we were strengthening our addiction until we were full-blown drunks or addicts, and by that point, the physical and mental devastation had set in and we were probably well on our way to disrupting the lives of loved ones, friends, and ourselves. Thanks to the now wide recognition of the disease of addiction, a lot of holistic approaches to spiritual and mental change have been introduced into the addiction recovery process, Theta Healing is one of them.

What is a Theta Wave?
Theta Brainwaves occur in the mind and are slower than Alpha and Beta waves. They are correlated with dreaming, meditation, creativity, and intuition. The basis of Theta Healing is that it uses similar methods to psychotherapy and hypnosis to remove deep-rooted emotional traumas from the mind.
How is Theta Used in Addiction Recovery?
According to the creator of the process, “Theta Healing is a meditation technique utilizing a spiritual philosophy with the purpose of improvement in mind, body, and spirit while getting closer to the Creator of All That Is. It is a focused prayer… to clear limiting beliefs and live life with positive thoughts.”
The main goal of Theta Healing is reprogramming the mind to trust in the power of a God to clean out the deepest resentments and traumas that people have buried in their subconscious thoughts. This is achieved through prayer and meditation and guidance with a healer.
Does Theta Healing Work?
The benefits of Theta healing seem to be out of this world. It requires no religious idealization and the results are reported to be rapid and profound. Lucky for us 12 steppers, it also promotes two of the crucial stepping stones for a solid program, which are prayer and meditation.
The sessions must be done with a healing practitioner who has been trained by the creator in her series of seminars. However, the practitioners are able to set their own rates so the cost of sessions will vary between practitioners and will depend on how many sessions you need or if packages are available. It also sounds like the number of sessions a person will require is contingent on how well they felt after the first one.
According to testimonies from the Thetahealing website, the process has helped people through a variety of struggles in life. Some people report having been cured of terminal cancer in a short period of time. Others report being free of anxieties or deep-rooted fears that have plagued them since childhood. Some people even report the ability to manifest energy into dead phone batteries and heal broken bones.
Does This Work For Addiction Recovery?
Thetahealing could be an extremely valuable tool in the initial detox and treatment of addicts and alcoholics. One of the hardest obstacles we face in early recovery is the ability to turn off our old ideas and habits and reprogram ourselves to live without the necessity of getting drunk or high. If the process is successful in its ability to reprogram the mind towards positivity and trust in a higher power, it could potentially help thousands of addicts and alcoholics.
While the basis of the practice sounds similar to our 12 step process in that it is intended to bring about an entire psychic change, I would recommend for addicts and alcoholics who are interested to use it in conjunction with our program of recovery. Thetahealing promises that this entire spiritual experience can be achieved in only one or two sessions. While this sounds promising, and it very well may be worth a shot, it alone does not provide us with is the opportunity to be of service to other alcoholics, which is our main goal and is the one and the only thing that is guaranteed to keep us sober.
