Rehabilitating an individual from drug and alcohol addiction is no easy task, and it requires a fair amount of 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 once and for all is no walk in the park, and we have thusly prepared a rehabilitation program that is well-equipped for addressing any possible addiction conflict in any client who comes to us for help.
Our virtue in addiction rehabilitation is our open-ended, results based, tailor-made rehabilitation program. 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 program 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 cure”. 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 flexible length of time spent in treatment and a wide plethora of treatment options for each client to pick and choose from. We want to make a point to let each and every client pick and choose his or her own treatment program based off of his or specific needs and wants.
Because of how varied and different addiction can be in different individuals and because of how differently it can affect people, we have put together a very diverse treatment approach that includes a wide plethora of different techniques and therapies. One of them is yoga.
Benefits of Yoga in Rehabilitation
Yoga has been in use for the purpose of healing the mind and the body for a very, very long period of time. 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 on 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 too 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 this purposes specifically it has been found to be quite beneficial and groundbreaking in rehabilitating addicted individuals. It has even more involved uses and benefits that can be instantly applicable:
Yoga Teaches New Coping Mechanisms to Recovering Addicts
At the core, basic 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 issues. When yoga is used in rehab, it applies a physical approach to accomplish this same result by teaching 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 then that person will be carrying around a dead weight of anger and personal travail that will go along with it. They may be really 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 habit. Deep breathing and regular exercise brings about a change that facilitates physical control. Physical control leads to mental control, thus giving the individual an 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 unification of the mind, the body, and the spirit.
Yoga Emphasizes Making a Spiritual Connection in One’s Life
Yoga emphasizes making a very, very strong spiritual connection through meditation and prayer and a, “finding of peace”, with oneself, one’s mind, and one’s 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.
