I am a Substance Abuse Counselor who does group therapy at an intensive outpatient treatment facility for dual diagnosis patients. I would like to say that what I have seen so far is that patients who incorporate regular physical activities to their daily routines are the more likely to maintain sobriety 6 months after completion of treatment, which supports this study. However, is not only physical exercise (running, aerobic exercise) that helps with sobriety but daily practice of meditation, gratitude and attendance to 12step programs, counseling among others as well. Thanks a lot for you publications and studies. I really enjoy them because it helps me to learn more about what I can do to improve my patient's treatment outcomes.
