Published by John Gillen | Last updated: 22nd November 2021

Are you someone who has been suffering from addiction, and has tried and tested methods that don’t seem to work?

Most drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres will offer a wide variety of physical and psychological therapies, delivered in a recovery focused setting which are mostly effective.

However, if you’re still struggling to overcome your addiction to alcohol or drugs once and for all, you can try an alternative rehab technique: Low Level Laser Therapy.

An addiction to drugs or alcohol can destroy the functionality in your brain and your physical energy, because of this, the core cells in your body need time to relieve and re-strengthen.

These cells can easily get damaged throughout the duration of your addiction as they’re extremely sensitive.

It’s not just your physical and psychological health, which is damaged through substance abuse, we’ve seen families torn apart, relationships broken down, careers and homes lost, all because of substance abuse disorders.

Whilst it may seem impossible at the moment, there is a way out of addiction to alcohol or drugs; here at Cassiobury Court we can help you.

Low level laser therapy can help restore the cells by emitting lights into the tissues of your core cells.

These lights then are transformed into energy – not only for the mitochondria throughout your body, but to accelerate healing energy.

At Cassiobury Court Addiction Centre, we’re now delighted to be able to include Low Level Laser Therapy as an integral aspect of our comprehensive addiction treatment.

How Does Low Level Laser Therapy Work?

Low Level Laser Therapy is done by applying a low-intensity cold laser on your wrist, to stimulate healing whilst using low levels of light. This laser then operates in a wavelength that is non-thermal, which means there is no risk of burns.

Different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area which then absorbs the light. This light then causes a reaction whereby the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction to promote regeneration.

Although you may feel the laser touching your skin, it is a completely safe and painless treatment method that has long been proven to be effective by various researchers and studies around the world.

This treatment method is also known as cold laser therapy because of the low levels of light aren’t enough to heat your body’s tissues, unlike other forms of laser therapy such as those used to destroy tumours which are much stronger.

The main uses of low level laser therapy are for tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation.

It’s regularly used in sports medicine and physical therapy for ligament sprains, tennis elbow, neck pain, and knee pain, but can also be used for skin rejuvenation procedures such as acne scars, psoriasis, dermatitis, burns, and rashes in addition to helping those who are battling addiction.

The potential uses for low level laser therapy are endless, some researchers describe its potential as being able to aid spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and traumatic brain injury.

How to improve your Physical and Psychological well-being

As a rule of thumb, you can assume that your mental and physical well-being are interlinked. Having low energy levels could be due to a physical issue, or your mental wellbeing causing physical exhaustion. How to improve your Physical and Psychological well-being

Low level laser therapy can be useful for both your physical and psychological well-being. As the lasers send out healing responses, this treatment can result in:

  • Feeling physically fitter
  • Being able to sleep better
  • Having a generally more positive mood
  • Having lower stress levels

The effects of this treatment have such a great impact on your psychological well-being which will naturally equip you with the tools to better deal with other mental health problems such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and addiction.

To add to that, low level laser therapy is a fantastic tool which will ease your rehabilitation from alcohol or drugs, allowing for a more effective long-term recovery.

At the beginning on these sessions, you’ll feel a release of endorphins giving you an almost immediate feeling of relaxation and calm; this is key to easing your dependence on alcohol or drugs.

As a result, you will experience less cramping, not feel as nausea, insomnia, and restlessness.

Whilst the success of low level laser therapy has been proven, it’s important to note that although each therapy session only takes a few minutes, it could take as long as a month before you begin to see any real results.

Low Level Laser Therapy: Physical Health

Low level laser therapy also helps your physical health which is likely to have been damaged in the case of a long-term addiction.

Addiction to alcohol or drugs leaves you at much higher risk of developing heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, stroke, anxiety, depression, bipolarity, and even suicide.

During low level laser therapy, you may experience a reduction in swelling as the blood vessels expand.

This unique treatment method is quite commonly used for injuries in sport as it really helps to speed up the natural healing process. It can also help prevent complications which commonly arise from addiction including:

  • Bowel Disorders
  • Diseases of cardiovascular nature
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and other immune system diseases
  • Liver disease which could be related to alcohol dependence
