And the Benefits of Recovery in Nature
The Benefits of Addiction Recovery in Nature
There’s a reason why people take vacations to remote cabins in the wilderness or plan day hikes after a stressful week at work. Nature has always helped us to decompress from the stresses brought on in our daily lives and that’s why we founded Brooks Healing Center in the countryside of Central Tennessee. Our patients can take a step back from their busy lives and detox and recover from their addiction(s) surrounded by nature’s bounty.
A Biological Connection to Nature
Humans have always felt a connection to nature and have sought out its healing qualities for centuries. Being able to reconnect with yourself so that you can focus on your mental health and addiction recovery, is a huge benefit that being in a natural setting provides. Recent studies have also shown that when someone who is struggling with an addiction, may experience reduced cravings to substances such as nicotine and alcohol when they’re surrounded by nature.
A Break from the Hustle of City Life
It can be hard to come to terms with your addiction when you’re in a stressful environment. But if you choose to detox or seek treatment at Brooks Healing Center, you’ll find that being surrounded by nature can help you relax and focus on your recovery instead of worrying about the stresses that city life can bring. You can also use this environment to reconnect with your faith and utilize the power of prayer to help you with your recovery.
