    a dose of healthy country living

    Does this dose mean "a little bit" or "taking(having)"?

    ex)There is an agricultural operation just outside Curitiba that looks like other farms in other areas....Instead, the workers are drug addicts and alcoholics who volunteer to spend up to nine months...In exchange for their labor, the workers receive counseling, medical care, job training, and a dose of healthy country living to get them back on their feet...

    More of a little bit, similar to a dose of medicine. They will not stay at the farm for a long time, so the country living experience is limited.
