FITNESS ROOM AT BRITELIFE SOUTH CAROLINA
There is no instant remedy for substance use disorder. It takes time, professional therapy, and a commitment to get sober to establish lasting recovery. At BriteLife Recovery, clients can access a full continuum of care that includes a variety of holistic therapies, including fitness training. Following a regular exercise schedule to help sustain recovery is often undervalued. When combined with other kinds of therapy, exercise can help clients avoid relapse by providing a routine schedule, avoid idle time, reducing stress and increasing self-esteem. While it might appear challenging to get started, it’s not! For fitness novices, it’s best to start small and build up your fitness program incrementally. This helps to avoid injury, but still realizes the health gains that will sprout quickly over time with a daily routine.
EXERCISE HAS REAL BENEFITS FOR RECOVERY AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Fitness and exercise are important features in a holistic addiction treatment program. Clients can see and feel tangible benefits for their mind, body, and spirit that include:
Physical Health Benefits
Physical activity can help you get to and maintain a healthy weight while strengthening your body and muscles. Fitness is particularly effective because weight battles are usually associated with substance use recovery — particularly for those who stop smoking and have increased appetites.
Mental Health Benefits
Routine physical activity offers many psychological benefits. When clients engage in fitness activities, their bodies release naturally produced endorphins. This process typically results in positive emotions of euphoria and cheerfulness after a workout.
Addiction Recovery BenefitsNumerous studies show that incorporating a weekly fitness routine resulted in sustained sobriety and enhanced recovery with the following benefits:
- Decreased cravings
- Reduced withdrawal symptoms
- Provides structure and routine
- Keeps you busy
- Lessens stress and anxiety
- Improves your mood
- Enhances self-esteem and self-image
- Develops positive relationships
