Yoga in Alcohol and Drug Treatment
Yoga Benefits in Alcohol & Drug Treatment:
Those who have become addicted to alcohol or drugs often begin to look at their overall health after entering an alcohol or drug treatment program. This usually begins after they complete the medical detoxification process. Some people go to alcohol and drug treatment because they are looking for a change in their lives and they understand that removing the alcohol or drugs from the equation is the first step in developing a healthy lifestyle. Once they begin looking at ways to improve their health, they discover that Yoga can help with accomplishing this goal or improving their health.
Summer Sky Treatment Center utilizes Yoga and GOGA (Goat Yoga) to help with improving a person’s overall health as they participate in addiction treatment. GOGA (Baby Goat Yoga) has been one service that has repeatedly enhanced participation in Yoga for all those attending our Texas alcohol and drug Rehabs. If you live in Austin, Texas, you may already be familiar with the GOGA since there are classes available to those living in Austin, Texas. However, if you live in other parts of Texas, then you may not be familiar with the benefits of Yoga or GOGA (Goat Yoga).
Yoga for those with a substance use disorder is very helpful and has many added benefits to improving someone’s health. The patients at Summer Sky Treatment Center are excited about the new GOGA (Goat Yoga). Those that have experienced Yoga in the past have rekindled the desire to get back into Yoga, and newcomers to the Yoga are enjoying the experience.
