The Benefits of Massage Help in Recovery
According to the National Institute of Drug Addiction, substance abuse costs the U.S. an estimated 484 billion dollars per year. That's right, $484,000,000,000.00. This number factors in the costs associated with social, prevention and awareness, intervention and treatment programs, coupled with lost wages, crime, and health care costs. As what seems like more and more people are affected by substance abuse, treatment facilities are turning to alternative and holistic recovery methods such as adventure therapy, massage and meditation.

Helps Reduce the Pain of Withdrawal
In general, addicts relapse due to the pain that is often associated with withdrawal sickness. At it's best, withdrawal symptoms can be just mildly uncomfortable, but at its worst ... withdrawal sickness can be brutally painful, and even fatal in some cases. Chiropractors, and other holistic healers have been using massage techniques to address chronic pain for hundreds of years. It only makes sense to incorporate this form of therapy into substance abuse programs. When your body starts to detox, it might develop post acute withdrawal symptoms. These are the pains associated with your body relearning how to cope without the abused substance. At Legacy Freedom, we've learned how to use this valuable tool to effectively treat your withdrawal pains.
Helps Reduce the Cravings During Recovery
Another big reason addicts fall victim to a relapse during recovery is because of intense cravings. Cravings can ruin recovery and patients sometimes must focus all their inner strength and willpower to remain focused on staying sober. Unfortunately, lots of recovering patients cannot resist the cravings and turn back to their vice substance. At Legacy Freedom, our Massage Therapy programs can help reduce these cravings that you are feeling. Call us right now to learn more and get started.
