Several scientific studies have shown that a regime of regular exercise can help drug addicts in fighting their addiction. This simple CLD tries to illustrate  the positive social and physical dynamic that sports activity can generate that may be beneficial in this process. There are also other positive effects of physical exercise that I have not shown. Sports activity  can help increase dopamine levels, which may improve the mood of those fighting drug addiction and  prompt them to stick to their regime of exercises.
