Nutritionist on Site
Physical health and a good diet are two important things many people don’t prioritize when they’re in the grip of addiction. That’s why we think it’s so crucial for people to eat well when they’re going into recovery. We want to change negative behaviors into positive ones, and a good diet will help you feel like you can take on the world.
Some nutrients in our food are directly linked to the production of ‘happy chemicals’ like dopamine and serotonin. Food that is devoid of proper amino acids, vitamins and minerals will not only make you feel bad physically, but mentally too.
Undoing Some of the Damage
Many clients who come to us for treatment have dramatically neglected themselves during their addiction, and often suffer from a variety of gastrointestinal and digestive disorders because of it. Some are even completely malnourished. A fiber-rich, protein-filled diet full of variety can help you get back on the road to recovery.
Something Positive to Focus on
Though there are plenty of activities available to clients within our facility, it’s quite normal for people to feel slightly aimless once they end a drug or alcohol habit. Their one goal used to be sourcing their next fix, and now that’s obsolete.
