For those who use opiates/opioids, physical activity is absolutely necessary. 

Being on opiates makes your brain deficient in endorphins.  Exercise forces the body to make its own endorphins, therefore you can take less of your drugs. The more of its own endorphins your brain makes, the easier it is to withdraw from opiates.

Withdrawal from opiates can be more dangerous than using them. I strongly suggest a supervised medical detox such as that offered by the Waismann Method 

Laughter also produces endorphins, as does sex. Laughing at your partner, instead of with your partner can cause depression which requires more exercise. 

Exercise is great not only for withdrawal  but for depression, insomnia, lack of appetite, and feelings of helplessness.

"Fitness is not only popular, but is good way of producing endorphins and fighting depression. The endorphins can block feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and can treat some symptoms of depression, such as insomnia and lack of appetite. In addition, those suffering from depression will feel better about themselves knowing that they are accomplishing something good for them and are taking an active role in their treatment."

If you are taking opiates now, make yourself exercise. Start out as much as you can and build towards a longer, vigorous exercise. It will be the best thing you can do for your body. Even if all you can do now is a short walk, that's fine, it's a start and if you continue forcing yourself to exercise you will get into great shape.

Today, there are opiate cleansing methods that are safe and devoid of the dangers associated with non-medically assisted detox.  For more information on the Waismann Method of rapid detox,
