Rehabilitation Focused Fitness Program Made by Certified Fitness Trainers
At House of Freedom Drug Rehab Center Florida, we focus on all aspects of what makes a human being a human being. This includes the physiological, psychological, social, and spiritual components, and ignoring any of these would be to deprive someone of reaching their full potential. That is why the House of Freedom Drug Rehab Center developed the HOF Fitness program to enhance the well-being of all our patients not just during their tenure in our drug treatment, but for the rest of their lives.
The benefits that exercise offers are countless and too many to ignore. Most substance abuse treatments do not have a fitness program which as a result decreases the chances of a successful recovery from addiction and alcoholism. As if overcoming addiction and alcoholism were not difficult in itself, just imagine having to do a drug rehab in Orlando while at the same time being overweight and dealing with all of the medical issues that may arise because of this. In 2013 obesity was recognized as a disease by the American Medical Association.
Another reason that House of Freedom Drug Christian Rehab Center in Florida developed the HOF Fitness program was to educate our patients due to the following common trends. Experts suggest that 75 percent of Americans will be overweight by 2015, and 41 percent of that group will be obese. It is estimated that if this trend continues, there will be not enough hospital beds to treat the number of patients that would need treatment for illness. In addition, it is estimated that lack of exercise kills roughly as many as smoking (which is about 500,000/year).
Exercise = Healthy Brain = Effective Drug Treatment Center
Exercise has also been shown to increase blood flow to the brain which is the most complex organ and although the brain only composes 2 percent of the total body weight, it uses 20 to 30 percent of all calories. Plus, the brain uses 20 percent of the oxygen intake and blood flow.
Our drug treatment studies have also shown that people who exercise regularly tend to make better decisions, report being happier, healthier, wealthier, wiser and more successful. Which leads us to the bottom line, exercise is not an option but is a must for anyone who wishes to overcome the illness of addiction and not just overcome it but rather live and enjoy a successful addiction treatment recovery with many years to come.
