While group and individual therapy are both effective in treating substance abuse, it is also important to include holistic therapies in a treatment plan. These types of therapy are in place to address the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. By doing this, individuals develop a deeper understanding of themselves and a stronger focus on emotional well-being.
When people think of yoga, they may think of people bending their bodies into strange shapes. This is the way it has been portrayed in popular culture. While there can be a fair amount of stretching, yoga can offer much more.
A core piece of yoga is learning to turn the mind inwards. As they stretch and learn to move their bodies, people are able to pause and think about themselves in the moment. Much like flexibility, this takes training. A person who has become proficient at yoga will find it just as soothing as traditional meditation.
While physical activity is important, so is proper nutrition. Since yoga is about healing the entire self, overall health is a major cornerstone. Even though yoga is for people of all shapes and sizes, those people will benefit more when they come to the activity at their healthiest.
While that healing is taking place, our rehab facility will pull out all the stops to get a person back on the right track. One way is through holistic programs such as yoga. When people get involved in yoga, it becomes clear that its benefits fit perfectly into the recovery process.
