What is the whole person approach to treatment?

Whole person care is a holistic approach to treating substance use disorder (SUD) that recognizes the importance of addressing all aspects of the person's life. It is particularly beneficial for people with SUD, as it's usually accompanied by other health problems, such as mental illness, chronic physical health conditions, and social determinants of health. By addressing all of these issues in a comprehensive way, whole person care can help people with SUD achieve long-term recovery and sustainable well-being.


​Here are some specific examples of how whole person care can be used to treat substance use:

Addressing Co-occurring Mental Health Condition  

Many people with SUD also have co-occurring mental illness, such as depression or anxiety. Whole person care providers can help to address both the SUD and the mental illness simultaneously, which can lead to better outcomes for both conditions. This may involve providing integrated treatment services, such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which can help to treat both the SUD and the mental illness at the same time.

Treating chronic physical health conditions

People with SUD are more likely to have chronic physical health conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, liver disease, or heart disease. Whole person care providers can help to manage these conditions and reduce the risk of complications. This may involve providing referrals to specialists, such as infectious disease doctors or cardiologists, who can provide specialized care for these conditions.

Addressing social determinants

of health

Social determinants of health, such as poverty, housing instability, and lack of access to healthcare, can play a significant role in the development and maintenance of SUD. Whole person care providers can help to address these social determinants of health, which can improve the person's overall well-being and reduce their risk of relapse. This may involve providing referrals to social services agencies, such as housing assistance programs or job training programs, which can help to address some of the underlying challenges that may be contributing to the person's SUD.

Overall, whole person care is a promising approach to treating substance use. It has the potential to improve treatment outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and increase patient satisfaction. If you are struggling with SUD, or if you know someone who is, I encourage you to learn more about whole person care and how it can help.
