Many people find yoga relaxing. Have you ever thought about using yoga as a way to overcome addictions or mental health disorders? If not, that is okay. Many people don’t realize the full benefits of practicing yoga. Research and evidence show that yoga can be greatly beneficial for people who are trying to work through issues.
Do you struggle with addiction or a mental health disorder such as PTSD? If so, our Harmony Oaks Recovery team would like to get you going on a recovery program that includes yoga.
Why Does Yoga Work
A long time ago, one of the only treatments available to help people overcome mental health conditions and addictions was talk therapy. However, as time went on, there were other treatments that became more of a norm. One of these treatments is yoga.
Yoga helps people to gain control over their breathing and their body. It is a holistic technique that allows people to lower stress and anxiety. It also helps with the following:
- Managing emotions
- Dealing with obstacles
- Building physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual strength
- Helps boost effectiveness in group and individual therapy
- Improves chances of overcoming substance abuse
- Reducing the severity of mental health symptoms
- Improves eating and sleep habits
- Helps a person to balance their mind, soul and body
If you have never tried yoga, our Harmony Oaks Recovery team highly recommends you do so, especially if you are going into recovery from a mental health disorder or addiction.
Using Yoga as Part of a Recovery Program
Our team has used yoga as a part of the recovery program for many of our clients. It is a terrific addition to almost any treatment plan for addiction or mental health illness. Some ways that we can use yoga as part of your recovery program include:
- Encouraging movement and relaxation
- Offering you a way to release pent up emotions
- Allowing you to deepen your connection to yourself and the world around you
- Deepening your understanding of balance, peace, and serenity
- Encouraging connection, team building, and confidence through yoga practices in group settings
- Teaching you how to make positive lifestyle changes
These are just some of the many ways that our Harmony Oaks Recovery Team can use yoga in your recovery plan. If you have more questions about this specific holistic technique to help you overcome a mental health condition or addiction, let us know today.
Evidence-Based Treatments in a Rehab Setting
If you are going to successfully overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol or manage a mental health disorder, it is important that you are receiving evidence-based treatments. Yoga is one of these options.
For years, yoga has been practiced for stress and anxiety relief. This is huge in any treatment plan when it comes to a mental health condition or addiction. Many people who have a mental health disorder experience high level of stress. It is the same for those who have an addiction. Not only that, but the high stress levels, can cause someone to relapse, too. If you haven’t added yoga to your recovery plan, talk to us about that today. Haven’t started treatment yet? We can help you with that, as well.
Here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center, our teams would like to help you overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Don’t have an addiction, but you do struggle with mental health symptoms? We can help you to manage or overcome that condition, as well. Do you have both an addiction plus a mental health disorder? If so, this is called a co-occurring disorder. Our team can create a treatment plan to help with both at the same time.
Getting the Help You Need for Addiction and Mental Health Conditions
Our team understands the struggles that many people face with their spiritual, mental, physical and emotional health.
