Wellness & Fitness
Addiction damages the individual in all parts of his or her being; there are physical and emotional tolls and spiritual costs as well.
We at Caron Texas believe that a patient’s road to recovery is best met with a personalized treatment plan that includes behavioral therapy and counseling, medical detoxification when necessary, and a life plan that includes wellness tools including an exercise fitness program, a spiritual approach and understanding the need for healthy balanced nutrition.
As part of the individual treatment plans, Caron Texas offers a range of exercise and fitness activities that are intended to help the patient better cope with the physical and emotional stresses associated with addiction. All activities are staffed by experienced professional fitness staff. Our exercise plans are individually designed so the patient finds activities that work for them whether it be tai-chi class, yoga class, walking around the beautiful campus, water volleyball or more strenuous activities like zumba, weight training, volleyball, basketball or aerobic and aquatic workouts.
The facility has a gymnasium for organized recreation like volleyball and basketball, as well as group and individual sessions for yoga, Zumba music workouts and tai-chi. Caron Texas also has a workout area for both weight training and aerobic exercise, together with experienced instruction to help patients maximize return with a minimum of discomfort. Finally, the facility has a pool for water aerobics and other exercises for those patients desiring non-weight bearing exercise or water resistance workouts.
We also believe that teaching patients about the benefits of healthy nutrition is an integral part of both the treatment program, and a patient’s recovery. Caron’s on-staff dietician provides one-on-one and group dietary education and planning.
