Drug and alcohol addiction compromises the mind and the body’s ability to function properly. Toxic buildup reduces the brain’s ability to regulate and produce neurotransmitters. This creates an imbalance in the glandular system and weakens the nervous system. As a result, the client becomes detached from their body and challenged in executing basic physical, mental and emotional functions. At The Detox Center, we offer a yoga therapy program as an alternative treatment used in tandem with traditional addiction therapy programs so we can help our clients work through physical pain.
What is a Yoga Therapy Program?
Yoga provides techniques that help our clients deal with the uncomfortable physical sensations that arise during the detox process. The benefits are many. Yoga will help the client detox their organs, reduce stress, increase energy, improve physical fitness, and repair brain chemistry. It will also help the client achieve balance, maintain self-discipline, and learn how to cope with difficult moments. Through yoga, the client can reset the relationship with their body. This helps them release toxins in a less stressful manner so they can begin to interact with the world with a “new biological operating system.”
Our yoga therapy program in FL is designed specifically for the client who is in a holistic treatment program. A steady practice may help to:
- Improve the function of blood chemistry, food metabolism, and the nervous and glandular systems.
- Provide nutritional guidelines on the proper ingestion of foods that cleanse and rebuild the body system.
- Reinvigorate the stamina and cleanse the system of those in recovery—clients are restored along with their spiritual energy
- Plant the seeds for a new lifestyle to help improve the quality of life for each recovery center graduate
Our Yoga Therapy Program
As the body is going through an intense medical drug detox process at a drug detox center, it is important to support it in natural ways. Specific asana (poses and stretches) challenge the body to stretch, sweat, and remove toxins lodged in the organs, muscles, and tissues. Yoga postures, when combined with breathing techniques, have a direct effect on organs (liver, kidney, lungs, digestive tract, etc.). They assist the body to execute its own natural detox functions.
Yoga has a direct effect on the adrenal and glandular systems and has proven to be effective at regulating the stress hormones, cortisol, and adrenaline. When these hormones are at high levels, they add to the body’s toxicity. This triggers anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorders—all of which can lead to more intense cravings and potential relapse. With an integrated yoga regimen, these hormones are reduced and balanced. This assists the client to relax, stay calm, and remain grounded throughout the detox process.
Relief from Stress
People who suffer from addiction often begin taking drugs as a means of escape from challenging life situations or as a relief from past traumas that do not seem to resolve. Without the proper tools and knowledge about how to process and control their own stress and anxiety through healthy means, they turn to substances like alcohol, pain relievers, street drugs, or sedatives to help them cope. The answer is to be mindful and aware of how they respond to life’s negative stimuli. Yoga helps clients gain control over negative thoughts and emotions.
Steady yoga practice has amazing effects on one’s ability to enforce self-discipline. Most people who suffer from addiction display a similar trait of being impulsive: a feeling of not being able to control urges or follow through on their well-meaning intentions. Yoga helps transmute the noise of negative impulses and trains the client on how to reinforce positive intentions with positive action. Over time, these new actions will become positive habits.

What Is Detox?
Drug detoxification, also known as detox, is the process of breaking the physical bonds of addiction. After long-term use, the body and brain get used to drugs and alcohol and can actually become dependent on them. When someone tries to stop using drugs or alcohol, they can experience strong cravings as well as painful withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms are the side effects of detox. These can be uncomfortable or even painful feelings. Their severity depends on the length of time an individual has used the substance and the amount they have used. Because withdrawal can be physically painful, those attempting withdrawal might be unable to stay sober. Withdrawal symptoms vary strongly from one drug to another but can include the following:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Anxiety and paranoia
- Muscle cramps
- Aching or weakness
Withdrawal can be a long process as well, lasting days or weeks. However, an important fact about The Detox Center is that we have designed our center to be as comfortable as possible. Our experienced staff of medical professionals will make sure that you are safe during the detox process.
