Meditation & Daily Planning Session
Often, for people suffering with drug addiction, meditation has never been a matter for contemplation. As soon as they experience any feelings of restlessness, anxiety or depression, they usually turn to their drug of choice to alter their state. The truth is that meditation has achieved success as a safe and natural cure for many people suffering from drug addiction world wide. For people going into rehabilitation for drug addiction, meditation provides an alternative method for recovering.
Yoga (stretching, balance and strength exercise)
Yoga is a common practice for people who want to bring a sense of calm into their lives, get into shape, or connect with their spiritual side. It is also becoming a more common component of substance abuse treatment. Yoga fosters the kind of discipline and self-peace that is needed in a 12-step program because it forces your mind and body to work in perfect synergy. Yoga therapy can release pent-up emotions that you might be feeling while in the course of substance abuse treatment.
Yoga therapy has been shown to reduce the following symptoms that often accompany a drug or alcohol addiction:
- Anger and hostility
- Anxiety and tension
- Fatigue and inertia
- Impulsive behaviors
If you or a loved one is looking for treatment for any type of substance abuse, please call NOW.
