Breathing Therapy for Substance Abuse Treatment

90% of our energy stems from oxygen. Our bodies require oxygen to obtain energy to fuel our living processes. Every cell in our body not only needs power, but every one of them needs oxygen too. The delivery of oxygen to our cells and muscles is what makes us capable of performing physical activity. Increased levels of oxygen help individuals perform better. If you lack oxygen, you will not perform physically and experience tiredness and fatigue. High oxygen not only benefits you physically but mentally as well. Oxygen is a natural element of the body; when oxygen absorption is increased, it can reduce the amount of time toxic substances linger in the brain. Long-term alcohol and drug abuse and prolonged use of prescription medication can damage the cells of the brain and result in symptoms of mental illness. Therapy not only enhances cognitive performances such as memory, visuospatial and verbal skills, it also improves liver damage, circulation, reduces cravings, improves sleep, and regenerates tissues.


What is Breathing Therapy?

Breathing is a function our body performs daily. Our body breathes involuntarily whether we are awake, asleep, or exercising. Oxygen Therapy utilizes a series of controlled breathing exercises to improve mental and physical performance and health. Recent research shows that a regular practice of controlled breathing can decrease stress on the body and increase overall physical and psychological health.

How Breathing Therapy Works for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

The long-term use and abuse of drugs or alcohol results in brain dysfunction, which can cause other long-term memory and cognitive ability issues. The latest studies prove that oxygen healing therapies can accelerate brain recovery. At Avatar Alcohol and Drugs Recovery Center, oxygen therapy plays a crucial role in the healing process of substance abusers whose brains have been affected due to drug overdose or long-term substance abuse, combined with our detox treatments. Oxygen therapy helps the brain heal. Our efficient oxygen therapy allows more oxygen to be carried to all organs and other parts of the body, especially to the brain’s oxygen-starved tissues.

Benefits of Breathing Therapy for Substance Use Disorders

At Avatar Alcohol & Drugs Recovery Center, we offer oxygen therapy as a complementary therapy alongside our conventional detox and treatment programs. Taking time to focus on our breathing allows us to pause daily stresses, physical symptoms, and emotions. During that moment, when we focus on breathing, we can return to a neutral state of being, gain clarity, rejuvenation, and enhance an overall sense of well-being.

The benefits of oxygen healing therapies at Avatar are as follows:

  • Repairs damaged tissues in the liver, brain, and pancreas: pumps more oxygenated blood into the mutilated tissues, promotes the growth and regeneration of tissues, reduces chronic tissue inflammation or swelling, and promotes re-growth of new blood vessels

  • Curtail or reduced withdrawal symptoms

  • Develops better decision-making abilities

  • Promotes better sleep and enhances endurance

  • Can improve symptoms of PTSD
