How Nutrition Impacts Recovery

Physical Healing in California

When we think about the impact of a drug or alcohol addiction on our health, we may not initially think about our nutrition. However, when you stop to think about it, it makes sense that struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction would have an impact on your food intake. For example, you may opt for fast, easy foods that have little to no nutritional gains. If your addiction has led to financial difficulties, you may opt for less expensive food options or skip meals throughout the day. Over time, these food choices can have a negative impact on your physical health. 

 

When addiction treatment programs have a holistic approach, it focuses on the mind and spiritual healing. Just as holistic treatment focuses on the spirit, it is also important for a comprehensive addiction treatment program to focus on physical healing. Our physical health, including the foods we eat, directly impacts our mental health. Beginning to eat healthy foods in recovery can work to correct nutritional decencies that have developed during active addiction.


Coachella Valley Recovery Center is an addiction treatment rehab in Southern California. We have designed our treatment program to take a holistic approach to address traditional addiction concerns and other areas of your mental and physical health. We offer a variety of alternative therapy programs, such as yoga therapy, to support our view of wellness. To learn more about our addiction treatment program in Palm Springs, we invite you to call (442) 888-6482 and speak with a representative.

The beneficial effect of eating healthy

How Can Healthy Eating Help Prevent Relapse

We mentioned above that eating healthy foods can help correct nutritional concerns that can develop during active addiction. Several deficiencies are known to contribute to cravings that can trigger a relapse. An example of this would be not having enough iron in your diet. Having low iron can lead to feeling tired, weak, and poor concentration. Another concern that can arise in active addiction is dehydration. Besides having a negative impact on important organs, being dehydrated can lead to low energy levels and contribute to mental health concerns, such as depression. 

 

It is not uncommon for individuals struggling with active addiction to neglect their physical health. There is a direct correlation between our physical health and our mental health. When we feel well physically, we are less likely to struggle with things like feeling sluggish, fatigued, and poor concentration. 

 

By being aware of your eating behaviors in recovery, you are working towards having a healthier lifestyle. A piece of addiction recovery is working towards wellness, which includes physical wellness. Additionally, you can work on developing healthy habits by paying attention to what you are eating. This can include cooking more nutritious meals, and ensuring that you are drinking enough water daily. 


If you find yourself searching for rehab and wellness treatment programs, we invite you to call (442) 888-6482 to speak with a Coachella Valley Recovery Center representative. We can provide you with a medical detoxification program with 24/7 medical supervision to ensure your safety and comfort. Additionally, we can provide you with inpatient addiction rehab treatment and mental health care if appropriate.

How We Can Help You

At Coachella Valley Recovery, we feel that it is important to be mindful of your overall health and wellness. This means looking at your addiction treatment needs, medical health needs, and mental health needs. 

Research has shown that there is a large portion of individuals who struggle with addiction who live with other mental health concerns. Common mental health concerns that we see in an addiction treatment rehab are anxiety, depression, a history of trauma, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. Our staff will talk to you about any mental health concerns you have and ensure that your treatment program includes the additional care needed to meet your needs. 

Our alternative therapy approaches include nutritional education, music therapy, and yoga therapy. We have found that there are a variety of ways that we can incorporate music into meaningful and impactful treatment interventions. Some find that when they leave, they have a new way to identify, express, and cope with their emotions after being exposed to music therapy. 

Yoga therapy can help individuals learn to incorporate and practice mindfulness skills. Mindfulness skills can be invaluable in our day-to-day life by keeping us in tune with our emotions. Individuals who struggle with addiction are known to use substances to cope with emotions, and may struggle in recovery if they do not learn healthier ways to cope with emotional difficulties. Mindfulness practices such as yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises are examples of skills that can be used to manage difficult emotions. 

Coachella Valley Recovery Center can provide you with nutrition and addiction treatment. Our staff utilizes a variety of alternative therapies in addition to traditional addiction treatment programs. We offer detoxification and an inpatient rehab program designed to address drug and alcohol addiction concerns. Additionally, we are able to provide you with mental health care treatment if needed.
