A holistic approach to addictions and psycho-emotional disorders focuses on total health and fitness by encouraging its clients to live a happy, healthy, and productive life.

Weight management, such as weight loss or weight gain, is an area of one's overall health that clients within these addiction and psycho-emotional treatment programs can focus on.

In order for the addiction and psycho-emotional treatment programs to effectively utilize weight management techniques and support their clients desire to gain a healthy body image, they often utilize the expertise of highly experienced licensed nutritionists that work closely with clients to help them form more productive food buying habits, food choices, meal preparation, as well as build a consciousness for healthy organic, chemical free food products. Holistic treatment programs such as this, clients gain a thorough understanding of their perceptions of food including what, why and how they eat, as well as how these perceptions affect each person's thinking, and ultimately behavior.

Additionally, the most effective form of weight management program consists of a psychiatric consultation, medication as indicated, psychotherapy, holistic and spiritual healing, diet and nutrition, as well as fitness that includes techniques such as daily Kai Chi Do, weekly Yoga, and swimming. Furthermore, some facilities like this include a workout room, tennis court, use of a resort spa, and a structured, personalized exercise program designed by the on-site fitness expert. The benefits that clients face in relation to joining psycho-emotional and addiction treatment facilities that incorporate weight management techniques is far-reaching as it focuses on the mind, body, and spirit.
