Good Nutrition is Key

October 18, 2016

Every month, a nutritionalist comes in to guide and educate residents in what healthy eating and food combinations work best for recovery. Some diets can eliminate cravings and some vitamins and minerals found in certain foods can help our bodies heal from the devastating effects of our disease.

When meals are planned by our residents they consider what they have learned and what they may already know about nutrition and consider the needs of the other residemts. It is an opportunity to learn how to care for one's self as well as consider others. Residents take turns working in teams, so they get to know each other and they get to the chance to build their self-esteem.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
