The Ridge Ohio's Recreation Program
The Importance of Recreation in Addiction Recovery
The general benefits of frequent exercise are common knowledge. Exercise also plays a key role in helping someone recovering from addiction. During recovery, nutrition and exercise work together to release endorphins, which stimulate a better mood and increased optimism, while diminishing depressive tendencies. Since withdrawal from substances is often such an unpleasant process, the mood-boosting effects of exercise are especially welcome in helping patients through the more difficult parts of recovery with as much comfort and optimism as possible.
Due to Covid-19 protocols and safety measures, there may be temporary shifts to activities and recreational scheduling. We will continue to promote recreational activities and therapies during your stay at The Ridge but may have to adjust gym visitations and on-site activities.
