Exercise and Fitness

Exercise: An Integral Part of Rehab

Patients usually enter treatment in a poor physical state. Regular exercise gives the body the physical strength to overcome addiction - it increases blood flow around the body and to the brain thus increasing energy levels & mental alertness; and it suppresses alcohol & drug cravings, helping motivate patients in their recovery. 

Exercise gives the body the physical strength to overcome addiction.

Exercise also releases feel-good endorphins which increase positivity and reduce depression & anxiety, both of which can lead to relapse.

Fitness is an integral part of our treatment programme and we make sure that all patients have a minimum of three fitness sessions per week. On top of this many patients use their spare time to walk around our extensive gardens.
