The road to addiction recovery is lined with peaks and valleys, but when you follow that path by combining physical exercise and addiction recovery, your journey will not only lead to sobriety but will also include a new healthy lifestyle. Nutrition and exercise in addiction recovery can ease the complications that may arise and help your recovery become a permanent reality.
When you exercise vigorously, your body produces endorphins that mimic the high you once felt. Sometimes referred to as a “runner’s high,” this feeling may not be as intense as what you once felt through drug use, but it is certainly a lot healthier.
In addition to weight control and overall better health, adding nutrition and exercise into your addiction recovery process can also help by:
Any type of physical activity is good. Short walks throughout the day can keep you motivated, help clear the mind, and even get you through a rough patch or a time of frustration. You can also match your exercise to your current needs. Summit Malibu offers a variety of excellent activities to suit each person’s situation.
Recovery is not easy, but at Summit Malibu we strive to create the optimum recovery program for you and make it as comfortable and rewarding as possible.
