Improve Physical Fitness to Fight Addiction
Continued drug and alcohol abuse eats away at a person’s physical strength and health. Once they’ve fallen into full blown addiction, their attention to fitness and nutrition becomes nearly non-existent. A weak and broken down body is not ideal for successful recovery. Exercise and fitness therapy are crucial aspects of an effective drug or alcohol rehab program, because it begins the process of rebuilding physical health, while simultaneously helping patients defeat their addictions.
Fitness therapy is effective on a scientific level because of the way it affects the brain. When a person exercises, their brain releases endorphins, which are the same chemicals which latch onto the brain following drug or alcohol consumption. Over time, the satisfaction produced by continual exercising can rival the rush felt from any substance use.
