Rehabilitating an individual from drug and alcohol addiction is no easy task, and it requires education, experience, diversification, and personal commitment and resolve on the part of the addict too. At Behavioral Rehabilitation Services, we recognize that the prospect of beating addiction is no walk in the park, and we have prepared a rehabilitation program that is well equipped for addressing any possible addiction conflict in any client who comes to us for help. Because of how different addiction can be and how differently it can affect people, we have put together a very diverse treatment approach that includes a plethora of techniques and therapies, one of which is yoga.
Tailor-Made Individual Rehabilitation Programs
Our virtue in addiction rehabilitation is our open-ended, results-based, tailor-made rehabilitation programs. We have noticed that the strict, cut and dried, one program only twenty-eight-day treatment approach has its limitations, so we offer a time-flexible, program-flexible plan that is variable and adjustable on a client to client basis. Addiction is not something that can just be categorized and given a stamp of, “exact length of time to recover.” It simply does not work that way. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a, “one size fits all” program approach. It just doesn’t work that way either.
The way to successfully rehabilitate someone so that they make an actual lifetime of recovery and success is to do so in a very open-ended, varied fashion with a flexible length of time spent in treatment and a plethora of treatment options for each client from which to choose. We want to make a point to let each client select their treatment program based on their specific needs and preferences.
Benefits of Yoga in Rehabilitation
Yoga has been in use to heal the mind and the body for a very long period. In fact, it is considered to be one of the oldest forms of spiritual and physical healing, growth, and self-discovery that is still in use today. Yoga has almost infinite uses:
It can help people find self-discovery and self-improvement on a mental and a spiritual level. It can heal injuries or illnesses.
It can be pursued as a religion under some variations of it.
It can be used as a social activity and as a group engagement.
It can be used as a way to stay in shape and promote physical health.
It can be used as a stress reliever.
It can be used to overcome a painful incident or occurrence in the past.
It can be used to tackle a personal discrepancy or disappointment with self.
Yoga goes above and beyond just those things though. In recent decades, it has been taken on as being a successful approach to the rehabilitation of those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. When used for these purposes correctly it has been found to be quite beneficial and groundbreaking. It has more involved uses and benefits that can be instantly applicable:
Yoga Teaches New Coping Mechanisms to Addicts
At the core, underlying root of addiction is a person’s inability to cope with or causatively address difficult personality traits, upsetting conditions in life, or troubling thoughts or issues. Counseling as it is applied in rehab will focus on helping patients to recognize this, and it will teach them to be able to tackle these problems. When yoga is used in rehab, it applies a physical approach to accomplish this same result by showing the use of controlled breathing as a means of gaining control of dangerous and upsetting thoughts and emotions.
Yoga Helps Individuals Achieve Balance and Full Peace of Mind
Often, when a person is ensnared by addiction, that person will carry around a dead weight of anger and personal travail that will go along with it. They may be upset with themselves, (harboring feelings of guilt), or they may be angry with others that they assume to be responsible to some degree for their addiction. Deep breathing and regular exercise bring about a change that facilitates physical control. Physical control leads to mental power, thus giving the individual ability to excise control of his or her anger. In this way, yoga combines inner and outer peace in a way that other forms of exercise do not because it focuses so strongly on a unification of the mind, body, and spirit.
Yoga Emphasizes Making a Spiritual Connection in One’s Life
Yoga emphasizes making a solid spiritual connection through meditation and prayer and a “finding of peace,” with one’s self, mind, and body. The achievement here is that of equilibrium between oneself and one’s dynamic aspects of existence.
Yoga Trains a Person in Self-discipline for Staying Sober for Life
Yoga supports the goals of a lifetime of sobriety by giving those who engage in yoga the tools that they need for positively directing their emotions in a pro-sobriety way.
