Sober Fitness How Physical Exercise Can Aid Your Recovery Journey
ABHASA recognises the importance of physical activity for recovering addicts and alcoholics. These folks have lived a life filled with devastation and harmful habits, which have had a direct impact on their bodies. Many of them have not engaged in physical activity in years and have no plans to start. Our mission at ABHASA is to highlight the alternatives available to patients and their families. Along the way, we hope to educate and inspire, demonstrating that your body is capable of incredible feats if you put your mind to it.
Society has portrayed rehabilitation centres throughout INDIA and the rest of the world as dreadful prisons. It is depicted and envisioned as a facility with hospital beds, intravenous drips, and group therapy sessions. In many centres, these tools are available, but they represent just a small portion of what the recovery process may provide for addicts and their families. AT ABHASA, we are fixated on providing the patient with more than just a recovery plan. We believe that the patient need a return to fundamentals.
Our treatment is straightforward; it emanates from the thoughts and hearts of devoted specialists. At ABHASA Recovery, we believe that a strong foundation is essential for success. During the active use or abuse periods of substance dependence, a tremendous amount of dopamine is released. The release of dopamine in the brain induces a euphoric state that many get addicted to. At the ABHASA Recovery and Rehabilitation Center, we view exercise as a natural way to restore the brain's dopamine balance, also known as the "happy" chemical. We accept the concept that physical exercise and physical activity can restore dopamine levels to pre-abuse levels in the brain of an addict. Although the "high" one receives from exercise is not nearly as potent as the synthetic substances we take, it is more realistic, less expensive, and long-lasting.
In addition to providing a bodily response, exercise can aid in psychological recovery. During physical activity, the mind focuses on the job at hand and very rarely wanders to drugs. In addition, the neurotransmitter dopamine will eventually flood the brain, enhancing the addict's self-perception. It has the potential to boost their self-confidence and their ability to successfully complete a task. A research of recovering addicts published in the journal Mental Health and Physical Activity revealed that physical activity and exercise can contribute to a sense of accomplishment, improved health, and the confidence to remain sober.
Physical exercise is potent enough to have an antidepressant-like effect, and it is related with a decline in stress hormones. At ABHASA, we employ this expertise in conjunction with a well-considered nutrition plan and regular amino-acid treatment. At ABHASA Luxury Recovery Centre, we make therapeutic use of the physical benefits of a well-structured exercise programme.
Over time, exercise is no longer merely perceived as arduous labour; it becomes their reality, their therapeutic treatment outside of rehabilitation. Mirror, mirror on the wall, I will always get back up after falling, and whether I run, walk, or crawl, I will fulfil all of my goals. Physical activity can be your next objective, accomplishment, and ultimately reality.
