Stimulant Reduction Intervention using Dosed Exercise

STRIDE cover

There is a need for novel treatment approaches in substance use disorders that will increase the likelihood of abstinence. Clinical data examining the use of exercise as a treatment in nicotine and alcohol use suggest that exercise may be a beneficial treatment for substance use disorders and is likely to result in direct effects on substance use parameters such as decreased use and craving reduction. In addition, exercise is likely to benefit many other health issues that are negatively affected by substance use, such as sleep, cognitive function, mood, weight, quality of life, and anhedonia. Exercise has been shown to improve many of these domains in a host of other clinical disorders. The study is a randomized controlled trial to test the effectiveness of the addition of exercise in improving drug treatment outcomes in stimulant and cocaine abusing individuals.
