Thinking of seeking treatment for addiction for a loved one or yourself? Know that you are not alone in this. Thousands of American lives are lost to addiction every year and millions more have been impacted drastically because of addiction. Alcohol is known as the most widely abused substance in America, yet it is left untreated most of the time even though alcohol abuse can impact a person’s mental, physical, and social wellbeing.
At the same time, studies have also shown that people with an addiction to alcohol tend to be more vulnerable to other substance abuses such as heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and other drugs such as opioids. Drug abuse also presents severe, if not life-threatening, side effects on our bodies.
At Spark To Recovery, we offer a wide range of therapies to treat alcohol and drug addiction. One of which is yoga therapy, a supportive and holistic treatment method we encourage all residents at our treatment center to participate in.
Restorative yoga therapy can act as a natural stress reliever, helping the body and mind to release toxic chemicals and negative thoughts. Through a combination of breathing techniques and postures, yoga can help to induce relaxation and calm the mind. By practicing yoga frequently, one would be able to experience a significant recovery from drug or alcohol independence, while strengthening mind, body, and spirit.
While there are many types of treatment and therapy programs available, the type of rehabilitation method ultimately depends on the individual’s unique needs. Drug or alcohol addicts often find themselves overwhelmed by psychological and physical symptoms during the early stages. In some cases, it may even discourage clients from completing their treatment.
With yoga therapy, our clients will find that they begin to have better control over their emotions. Other benefits include the ability to develop a better awareness of their body’s needs, experience an increase in strength, resilience, and healthier energy levels.
Studies have shown that yoga therapy can be especially helpful for individuals who are looking to treat an addiction, especially during the early stages of recovery. Common symptoms such as anxiety or depression is often experienced during the initial phases of treatment and restorative yoga has been found to be an effective way to cope with such symptoms.
With Spark To Recovery’s help, clients will be able to find a way to overcome addiction and live a fulfilling life without being overwhelmed by excessive cravings. Our addiction rehab center is extremely dedicated to offering a safe and non-judgmental environment for people to start their journey to sobriety. Rest assured that all our clients are treated with utmost respect, integrity, and openness.
