While these approaches to treatment are helpful to many people with addictions, some feel they need an approach that helps with the physical, as opposed to the mental or emotional aspects of addiction. Others find that exercise helps with managing cravings, as a backup therapy to talk therapy. Over the years, exercise has been recognized as a self-help tool among people recovering from addictions as support for recovery, but only recently has exercise been recognized as a treatment for addiction in its own right."

Now, research with mice suggests that exercise might strengthen a drug user's resolve by altering the production of peptides in the brain, according to a study in the journal ACS Omega.

Working up a sweat also can help you kick a substance abuse habit – and new research provides insight into the neurobiological mechanisms behind this positive effect. In a study involving animals, in the April 2, 2018, issue of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, researchers at the University at Buffalo Research Institute on Addictions found that daily aerobic exercise altered dopamine signaling in the brain in ways that may make alcohol and other substances of abuse less appealing or rewarding.
