Nutrition influences every aspect of our self. It impacts our physical wellbeing, of course, but it also directly affects our mood, meaning nutrition influences our emotional and mental health. How and what we eat can have a significant positive or negative outcome. Nutrition affects our ability to think clearly and how quickly our body can heal. While on the path to wellness, in recovering from substance use disorder, and improving one’s mental health, good nutrition is vital. Therefore, Grace Counseling incorporates nutrition counseling into all of our programs, from addiction treatment to mental health programs.
We understand poor nutrition can hinder the progress of recovery and healing from mental health issues. While it may not be the primary driving force, good nutrition helps individuals achieve and maintain mental wellness or gain freedom from addiction. Good nutrition will also vary depending on the person because everyone is unique. From your exercise level to your personal food preferences, there are so many factors to consider for each individual, and our dietitians can help you make the best choices.
