    Sure is! If you have abused opiates for more than a few weeks, your brain in more than likely depleted of its natural feel good chemicals. Your body and brain naturally create chemicals called neurotransmitters. you have abused opiates for more than a few weeks, your brain in more than likely depleted of its natural feel good chemicals. It will take time to replace these chemicals and a good way to help bring them back is by going to the gym walking running or any fitness activity as this help replace what you have lost!

    Hope this helps...
