New Video Released by Best Drug Rehabilitation Focuses on the Benefit of Physical Therapy in Recovery

Friends and family of those who may be struggling with addiction in their lives may be interested in a new video released by Best Drug Rehabilitation, a holistic treatment center for substance abuse located in Western Michigan. This video, which is available for viewing on the Best Drug Rehabilitation YouTube channel and in the corresponding blog entry posted on their website, features footage of patients in the recovery center’s fully equipped fitness center as well as clips from interviews with patients and the on-staff personal trainer at BDR, Jim Sonsmith.

“When your body feels good, it’s a lot easier to think,” Sonsmith explains in the video. “The physical exercise and the yoga program that we offer here, as well as the other fitness programs, helps their body get healthy. That’s going to help them with their energy, that’s going to help them sleep better at night, and it carries over into the other parts of the program.”

The video and blog entry also discuss how, many times, physical therapy can be one of the most important aspects of the recovery program. According to data collected from their Patient Intake Department, the past few years have shown a remarkable increase in the number of patients admitted to Best Drug Rehabilitation due to addictions that began with prescription pain medication. “Instead of addressing the cause of a person’s pain, doctors are too quick with a pen and a pad, and simply try to mask the symptoms of a person’s condition,” commented BDR founder Per Wickstrom. “We take a more holistic approach. We evaluate each patient individually, and then, using exercise and proper nutrition, we work towards repairing the damage instead of ignoring it and hoping it goes away.”

Also featured is BDR patient Kenny M., who shares his first-person perspective of the benefit he found in the rehabilitation center’s physical wellness program, specifically the ability it give to patients who need to relieve stress and anxiety, or simply blow off some steam. “I get a lot more done,” he says,” and I’m able to stay more focused. You’re going through an emotional rollercoaster, so the main thing to do would be to find certain things that take your mind off of stress and tension. For me, that would be working out.”

The Best Drug Rehabilitation program was designed to address all of the needs of those who come to the recovery center seeking help in overcoming addiction. By focusing equally on mind, body, and spirit, BDR patients are able to discover an effective method of treatment tailored to fit their individual needs. Click here to see the full video:
