2019-10-31 14:29:39 | BioPortfolio


In 2017, structured physical exercise with high intensity was implemented as a part of the treatment program at St. Olav Hospital Clinic of Substance Use and Addiction Medicine.

The objective of this study is to examine whether implementing structured physical exercise in the treatment program has implications for patients' physical and mental health and quality of life after completing a 3 month residential treatment program.

The results of this study will benefit substance use disorder patients in the future, and may have an impact on further implementation of physical exercise in addiction treatment clinics both nationally and internationally.
