Pathways Recovery Emphasizes Importance of Good Nutrition in Addiction Treatment
Why Reintroducing Good Foods During the Detox Process Is Crucial
Sacramento, Calif. — Pathways Recovery, an addiction treatment center near Sacramento, Calif., has launched a campaign to educate the public about the correlation between a healthy diet and the transition from substance use disorder to sober living. The nutrition professionals at Pathways advocate the power good nutrition can have on physical and mental health. That's why the facility offers good foods and a healthy diet to clients as they embark on the road to recovery.
Nutrition is an issue for people battling addiction because people with a substance use disorder often consume less food (weight loss) or eat in excess (weight gain); binge eat late at night; burn through the body’s energy supply more quickly; lose important nutrients in excess through symptoms like vomiting; have less energy and are often fatigued; experience some damage to the stomach and/or digestive system, making it more difficult to process nutrients; and develop hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
Pathways Recovery professionals are dedicated to making sure the detox process is as comfortable and safe as possible. That starts with incorporating good nutrition and a focus on one’s physical health.
“Pathways Recovery is a life-changing experience,” said Jesse, a previous client. "All the counselors are caring and very good at their jobs. They provide you with many different tools for your recovery and focus on your physical health as well.”
Pathways Recovery has made good nutrition a hallmark of their programs. The nutrition professionals at Pathways say the benefits of this healthier lifestyle choice include reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some cancers; lower cholesterol levels; a boost to the immune system to fight off illness more effectively; increased energy; better mental well-being, including a reduction of depression and anxiety symptoms; and speedier recovery from sickness or injury.
“I can’t say enough about their ability to make a difficult process comfortable,” Chad, a past client, said. “Also, the food is great and lots of choices. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about recovery from drugs and/or alcohol.”
Pathways Recovery professionals explain that as toxins are leaving the body during the detox process, the body needs something positive like good, healthy foods going in. In the end, the goal at Pathways is that each client will reach the point where they’ve built up an in-depth knowledge of healthy foods.
