Health and Wellness

At HCBTS, we believe that long-term recovery goes hand-in-hand with living a healthy life style and one of the most important components to one’s wellbeing is exercise. During recovery, the body and mind will continue to crave the “high” experienced during drug use. Exercise can give a natural high by releasing endorphins in the brain, which have similar effects to the ones released during drug use. Along with boosting ones mood, exercise helps to reduce anxiety and depression, reduce ones risk of numerous health issues and improve ones overall confidence significantly. At Sandy’s place, we believe that exercise adds structure to our client’s lives and helps them stay accountable, two important aspects of recovery. Because exercise requires one’s full focus and attention, being present is inevitable. The physical and emotional benefits of regular exercise directly impact one’s ability to achieve long-term sobriety.At Sandy’s place, our clients receive gym memberships, and have exercise classes, such as yoga, built into their day.
