Addiction recovery should not be taken lightly. We urge you to go in knowing that it is recovery from a disease and not to expect an overnight change. However this does not mean every step of the way is going to be medical, or miserable. Something as simple as daily exercise can make a huge impact on your recovery.
Chemical Reactions and Addiction Recovery
Exercise actually releases endorphins. Endorphins are a group of neurotransmitters in the brain that are responsible for blocking pain, and feelings of pleasure and euphoria. During addiction, the substance abused was releasing these endorphins, causing a literal physical need for them. We recognize that recovery from any addiction is only in your mind, we can help you through the physical side effects of recovery.
