Adding nutritional analysis and education enhances the "perfect blend" of addiction treatment that has led to the high rate of successful outcomes that The Landing is known for.

"The men get motivated to feel better and enjoy their recovery and of course no one complains about the natural side effect of losing a few pounds."

The Landing is an exclusive men’s addiction treatment facility on the sand in Newport Beach, California. Known for their mission statement of “giving men the best possible chance of long term recovery,” The Landing’s staff routinely integrates the latest evidence based practices into their treatment regimen.

Dr. Jason Deyo is a nutritionist who has been working with the male patients at The Landing. The men in treatment have really embraced Dr. Deyo’s recommendations as part of their new life of sobriety.

Dr. Deyo regularly facilitates workshops during the treatment process to educate the men on diet and nutrition. The information about what drugs and alcohol rob from the body provides a motivational component that promotes sobriety. The adjustments to their diet allow men to better manage cravings by stabilizing their blood sugar and adrenal production. Dr. Deyo says, "The men get motivated to feel better and enjoy their recovery and of course no one complains about the natural side effect of losing a few pounds."

Dr. Jason also works with the male patients to try and assess what their “mood type” is in order to design a nutrition and supplement program. Dr. Deyo is an expert on supplements like amino acids that can enhance a patient’s energy level and attention span during treatment. Through weekly lectures and personal consultations, the male patients gain knowledge to make a connection between their mood and what they are eating.

Dr. Deyo has been designing science based nutrition programs for 18 years. In his words, “I love seeing the ‘light turn on’ in my clients and watching them transform themselves as their health improves. I can be a facilitator to help them remove irritability, restlessness, and discontent from their lives. It is amazing what stable blood sugar can do for the body and mind - especially during early recovery.”

Dr. Deyo also considers it a privilege to be part of Landing’s cutting edge “blend of treatments.” He says, “There is a big difference between having access to great therapists and a rich support system, and going to a rehabilitation center that teaches you how to fuel the body and mind to process and integrate all of the information that you are exposed to. I think nutritional support sets The Landing apart and I'm happy to be a part of that.”

The Landing Program Director Stephen Odom says, “We will use every tool we can possibly find to help us facilitate a positive change in the way men feel while they are here and drug free. The key is to build momentum towards lasting sobriety by showing a positive new way of living. Using proper nutrition has proven very helpful in changing the way men feel and behave in sobriety.”

The Landing is part of CRC Health Group, the most comprehensive network of specialized behavioral healthcare services in the nation. CRC is committed to making its services widely and easily available while maintaining a passion for delivering advanced treatment. Since 1995, CRC has been helping individuals and families reclaim and enrich their lives.
