Let's Get Physical

There are studies about the question, 'can I think my way into recovery and a new frame of mind, or do I get a new frame of mind because I do something different? Which comes first? Do I physically start to take care of myself by exercising and wait for my mind to follow? Then my mind follows my body.

The studies showed that you cannot think your way into recovery, you need to physically do something that says, "I matter to me." Perhaps that's why rehabs start their clients off on the right foot by providing a gym or yoga program. Those in recovery also need to blow off steam.

a send great reason to "get physical."

We go to the beach or hike in the woods. Because of tics, we stick to the roads that carve through our state parks. We bike along the trails of Hammonaset. We also back our books and stop for a literature based workshop in nature.

The gym is also available where residents take up ick boxing. It has a very positive impact and allows our residents to get "into" their bodies and feel empowered.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
