When we correct the deficiencies and restore body balance, distorted eating practices will often be corrected and normalcy returns.

For individuals in recovery from drugs and alcohol, diet and nutrition has a significant influence on how their brains heal. In a new article entitled “The Importance of Nutrition & Wellness In Recovery,” published on AmericanAddictionCenters.com, Dr. Ralph E. Carson, RD, Ph.D. provides insight into the importance of providing drug and alcohol treatment patients with appropriate nutrients and dietary plans during the rehabilitation process.
Dr. Carson, nationally recognized clinical nutritionist, exercise physiologist, speaker and author, also notes the benefits of sleep, mindfulness and metabolic balance. “When we correct the deficiencies and restore body balance, distorted eating practices will often be corrected and normalcy returns,” he says.
Identification of the stressors that may incite relapse is a fundamental step in early recovery. “What Are Triggers?“ is another article found on AmericanAddictionCenters.com that recommends to addiction treatment patients that they keep track of their triggers via “trigger lists.” This can be beneficial to recognizing and managing possible stressors in order to avoid or manage relapse.
