Healthy Living

Healthy living residential programs provide and maintain adult residential alcohol/drug abuse recovery and treatment services. Recovery isn’t just about getting clean and sober; it’s about rebuilding your life on a stronger, more stable foundation. Cultivating your overall health will not only help you maintain your sobriety; it can also give you the energy and strength to fulfill your most cherished personal goals. When most people enter rehab, their bodies and minds are suffering from the damage caused by alcohol, drugs, poor nutrition, and a lack of exercise.

Fortunately, many of these problems can be prevented or reversed through a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a drug-free lifestyle. Best of all, clinical studies show that regular exercise and proper nutrition can decrease the desire to abuse substances. You don’t have to wait to start living a healthier life. Choose a treatment that recognizes the importance of nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction in the recovery process. When you’re in recovery, nutritious food is one of your most powerful healing tools. With each meal or snack, you have the opportunity to nurture and strengthen your body. Many individuals who enter recovery are malnourished when they enter detox. Drugs and alcohol can cause appetite loss, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, and digestive problems. All of these issues can affect your body’s absorption of nutrients. It is also common for people to start recovery in a state of dehydration, with insufficient fluids and electrolytes in their system. Replacing lost fluids and nutrients is one of the top priorities of a medically managed program.

Numerous clinical studies have confirmed that exercise can help recovering individuals stay on track with their treatment plan and avoid relapse. Exercise provides many short-term as well as long-term benefits. Increased physical activity elevates the heart rate and stimulates deep breathing, increasing blood flow throughout the body. The activity also triggers the release of endorphins and other neurochemicals that promote a sense of energy and well-being. Working out several times a week produces even greater long-term benefits, including a more efficient cardiovascular system, increased endurance and strength, weight stabilization, greater flexibility, and decreased blood pressure. From a psychological standpoint, physical fitness generates a sense of self-efficacy or the confidence that you can create positive outcomes in your life. A regular exercise schedule can provide a diversion from the desire to drink or use drugs while replacing those addictive behaviors with positive, healthy ones. While most studies have focused on the effectiveness of cardiovascular exercises like walking or jogging, research has shown that strength training and weight-lifting can be equally effective at stabilizing moods and promoting mental health. As part of a comprehensive rehab program, a personal trainer or fitness specialist can help you develop an exercise program that’s safe and effective for you. Here at Agape Love, we start working on a personalized recovery plan.

Our team of therapists, counselors, and experiential instructors guide you to a recovery of mind, body, and spirit. Staying sober and healthy is a lifelong effort. It is important to have plans for continued care and support after leaving our program. Be part of our growing group of alumni and get the support you need through our online groups and monthly meetings. Get the education you need to work in the field you have always dreamed of. Our team at Agape Love Community Center will guide you through the preparation and application process to make this a reality. In order for a rehabilitation treatment to be successful, the patient needs to be set up with the necessary tools to retain progress beyond the treatment itself. After all, it’s relatively easy for someone to avoid substances while under constant staff supervision in a facility. However, what happens once the patient is out in the real world? How will they navigate their everyday life without using drugs or alcohol as coping mechanisms? In order to address the possibility of use in the future, rehabilitation needs to incorporate relapse prevention into their program. That is ultimately what the whole treatment is going to be about.

Establishing coping mechanisms and healthy habits that prepare the patient for relapse prevention is a vital part of our approach to rehabilitation. We understand the pressures that come from resuming one’s daily life following treatment for substance abuse. In order to relieve some of that pressure and to help the patient be confident in their transition, we make sure to set them up with relapse prevention mechanisms and an aftercare support system. By helping them prepare for the stressors of normal life, we can ease them into normalcy with new tools to handle urges and impulses.
