Multiple Pathways Exist to Support Long-Term Recovery

For most individuals suffering from addiction, recovery is a lifelong process. Addiction is a chronic disease and relapse is an ever-present threat. Some individuals find that it’s helpful to access multiple pathways when it comes to supporting their sobriety.

Frequently, integrating health and wellness activities into addiction treatment can have highly favorable results. This can be accomplished by incorporating fitness activities into the daily routine of individuals seeking a life of recovery. These activities, when combined with other exercises, may prove fruitful in helping sustain their recovery over time. A holistic approach often includes the following:

  • Fitness Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness Exercises
  • Family Therapy
For many individuals, the bulk of their recovery skills are acquired during the initial phases of treatment. These habits are designed to promote sobriety over the long term and help during times when the risk of relapse occurs. Recovery skills and behaviors are often established through the following therapeutic approaches:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Gender-Responsive Programming
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Relapse Prevention Training
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
