Ayurvedic medicine accomplishes healing through harmony and balance with the universe and energies in the body. Addiction is treated in Ayurveda by explaining addiction as madatya. The goal is to restore the addict’s doshas to a proper balance so that he or she can live a drug free life. Each centre uses different treatments that they will use, depending on the person. They may use massage to remove toxins or exercise to release negative thoughts or use herbs to reduce addiction and withdrawal symptoms.
