are proud to offer healthy and delicious meals prepared by our culinary
staff, in consultation with a dietician.
Furthermore, we provide Healthy Cooking classes to clients to help them
develop healthy eating habits once they return to their home
“Everyone has a doctor in him
or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force
within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food
should be our medicine.
Our medicine should be our food.”
A key to Recovery is changing negative behaviors
into positive ones – this includes diet and nutrition. We teach
clients to make healthy food choices, which is important to achieving a
healthy lifestyle. Because they have neglected their diet, addicts often
suffer from gastrointestinal disorders such as diarrhea, constipation,
an inability to digest foods properly, a poor appetite, and
malnutrition. As a result, we recognize that our clients have a special
need for foods that have high nutrient values to rebuild damaged
tissues, organs and regain appropriate functioning of the various
systems such as the nervous and gastrointestinal systems.
