In most cases involving addiction, there is a good chance that the person struggling with addiction is also struggling with physical health issues caused by poor nutrition.
Addiction can make it very difficult to maintain a healthy body or to make decisions that are good for your health. That’s why our recovery program involves nutrition therapy to help your body have a better recovery.
Nutrition therapy addresses the decisions that you make regarding your eating habits and nutrition management, as well as provides you with better nutrition to help your body physically recover.
Most people struggling with addiction make poor eating choices that can degrade their bodies over time. When you are trying to mentally overcome addiction, struggling against physical issues makes the process much harder.
Nutrition therapy begins by providing you with what your body needs to get physically healthy again. This means eating healthier so that your body has what it needs to heal.
Then, we work with you to help you understand how to make better decisions when it comes to eating. That way, you can better manage your physical health by managing what you eat.
Without a healthy body, no amount of recovery will help you feel better and make it easier to overcome addiction. Years of drinking or substance abuse can seriously degrade your body. If you are constantly struggling to get through the day because your body is not able to maintain itself, then handling the mental aspects of recovery can be much harder.
Nutrition therapy provides the first step in getting your body back to a healthy and functional state. You can effectively rebuild your body by giving it everything that it needs to be revitalized and healthy.
Our nutrition therapy program is run by a skilled and certified nutritionist. Their job is to make sure that everything that you eat is healthy and helps you make a better, longer-lasting recovery. All of our meals are designed by a nutritionist to ensure that they align with your recovery goals.
Our nutritionists also work with you to help you make better food choices. By changing how your look at food choices, you’ll learn to choose food options that will keep you healthier and help you fight addiction relapse.
Starting your recovery can be difficult, but it can be much easier if you seek help from the right place. Contact a member of our team by calling us at (225) 361-0899 or filling out our online form.
