Healing the brain. Restoring the body.

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. ― Buddha

Healers have pondered the connection between physical and mental health for centuries. In recent years, science has identified the powerful relationships that exist between our mind and body; our physical health does affect our mental health – and vice versa. Concurrently, evidence-based medicine has proven that emotional, spiritual, and behavioral factors can directly affect our health outcomes. These are incredible breakthroughs. 1 Method has a strong emphasis on your physical health.

Offering a new approach to an old problem

It’s not about running on a treadmill that leads you nowhere. It’s not about following a routine that doesn’t inspire you or yield results that you can see and feel. It’s about understanding how the body and the mind work together to make your life work better and more harmoniously with you. The physiological effects of addiction and mental illness are as damaging to the body as they are to the spirit. Creating the space inside your mind to address your physiological need to recover is as important a component to mental wellness as listening to and understanding your body correctly is to renewing physical strength. Giving yourself the tools and time to meet that objective is just the beginning. Our treatment protocol focuses on both.

Addiction and mental health issues take a toll on you physically, mentally, psychologically and emotionally. Finding courage to face your demons is a choice. Gaining strength as you do it is scientifically proven to repair your body on a cellular level, improve your mindset and increase your odds of success.

Exercise and application produce order in our affairs, health of body, cheerfulness of mind, and these make us precious to our friends. ― Thomas Jefferson

Our health and fitness program includes a myriad of holistic therapies. These work in synergy to support your individual fitness goals, recovery, healing, and the overall treatment process:

Nutritional, chef prepared meals – Our in-house chef prepares healthy meals made with whole, nutrient rich foods.

Bodywork – Chiropractic and acupuncture treatment are important aspects of our approach. The benefits of each are well known and can:

  • Relieve chronic pain
  • Reduce the effects of stress
  • Elongate (release) tight muscles
  • Loosen toxins from the tissues
  • Boost immunity
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Speed recovery from injuries
  • Calm the central nervous system
  • Increase and improve circulation

In-House Gym – Train with our personal trainers four times per week in an onsite, well-equipped facility. We provide a safe, functional, and healing environment.

Yoga classes – Weekly yoga classes (including 1-on-1 instruction if requested) provide a greater sense of awareness and reconnection to the body, resulting in grounding and self-realization.

Wellness Groups – 1 Method wellness groups integrate our culture of wellness with the clinical routine. The supportive, nonjudgmental setting celebrates goals and provides education on topics related to our holistic approach that include health, fitness, nutrition, and spirituality.

Guided meditation – Meditation with an experienced teacher guides you to cultivate your own practice. Those that put mindfulness meditation to use may enjoy many healing benefits from the practice:

  • Relaxation
  • Clarity of thought
  • More focused attention
  • Positive shifts in mood
  • Enhanced self-awareness
  • Improved health and well-being

Breathwork – is a technique that assists in refreshing your perspective, changing old thought patterns to create healthy behaviors, and processing trauma. The connection between brain and body is improved through the awareness that breathwork instills and the mindfulness that results from its practice.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.  Helen Keller

Other ways the health and fitness program helps

Calm the body to calm the brain. ― Bessel van Der Kolk


Our health and fitness protocols intervene with the brain mechanisms that trigger drug cravings. This reduces the intensity and duration of any withdrawal-related craving symptoms.


The protocol works to lower anxiety by stimulating the release of neurotransmitters, most notably, endorphins. It also works to engage dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin – all proven to decrease anxiety levels. The program can also eliminate day-to-day reliance on prescription strength anxiolytic medications.


By stimulating the production of neurotransmitters that regulate, stabilize, and elevate mood, our approach is proven to reduce symptoms of depression. These neurotransmitters include endorphins, dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. The fitness protocols also increase the absorption potential for endorphins, endocannabinoids, and other naturally occurring “feel good” chemicals within brain cells. Your mood naturally improves, and this brings about a more balanced outlook on life.


Our protocol may help you sleep better and sleep well by improving function in the hypothalamus, a crucial part of the brain that regulates sleep depth and length.


Our Health and Fitness Program, establishes a health, fitness, and wellness regimen that you can follow during and after your time at 1 Method. We believe that recovery is much more than just the absence of disease. True recovery comes when we find harmony between each of the four bodies (i.e., Mental Body, Emotional Body, Spiritual Body, and Physical Body.). Our physical body is our foundation in this new life. Engaging the physical being improves our sense of wellbeing and fosters a more positive emotional experience and mental outlook. It also helps you to stay engaged in treatment and increases the likelihood you will recover for good.


The benefits of our treatment approach on your physical state are too numerous to count – and your health and fitness plan will be designed to help you achieve your personal goals. These may include:

  • Losing or gaining weight
  • Increased VO2 capacity
  • Boosting your immune system
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Improved flexibility
  • Better stamina and endurance
  • Strengthening of your core
  • Increased energy
  • Injury rehabilitation


Our protocol works to enhances mood for many reasons. Two of these are:

  1. it releases important chemicals in the brain like endorphins and serotonin.
  2. It puts you out into the world and puts you in touch with the culture of health and fitness. Staying connected with people whose goals are similar increases success rates.

It’s not rocket science that when you exercise regularly you gain an enormous sense of well-being. You feel more energetic throughout the day, sleep better at night, have a clearer focus and sharper memory, and generally feel more relaxed about your life. By immersing yourself in our culture, supported by our team, you’re on the track to making this your new reality.


According to stress management expert and radio personality, Debbie Mandel, author of Addicted to Stress, “Exercising creates empowerment both physical and mental, especially weight lifting where you can calibrate the accomplishments. Exercise organizes your day around self-care.” Ms. Mandel, (who is not affiliated with 1 Method), makes some excellent points. First, our health and fitness program brings goals out of the ether and into your day-to-day activity, which means action. That feels good and improves your sense of self-esteem. This is vital in the early healing and recovery process. Second, exercise begins to occupy an important place in your thought process – Obsession. By replacing unhealthy obsessions with healthier ones, your mind, body, and soul begin to reconnect. Every workout becomes a new experience and that improves your self-esteem and just feels good.
