Nutrition education and counseling are key components of treatment and recovery at Palo Verde Wellness. A poor diet leads to poor health and can actually be a trigger to increased cravings for substances. Substance use can actually cause a loss of appetite, and in some cases, those using simply forget to eat. In general, those suffering from a substance use disorder do not make healthy eating choices. So, most arrive at a treatment facility suffering from poor nutrition on top of their substance abuse. By receiving nutrition counseling as part of addiction treatment, the recovery journey is a much safer one due to the body being in a better state of health.
Having nutrition counseling as part of your addiction treatment experience can only benefit you both physically and mentally. A focus on good nutrition paves the right path to start the healing and recovery process.

What Is Nutrition Counseling?
Nutrition counseling can be described as the process of having a nutritionist or registered dietician educate and guide you to making healthier food choices and building better health habits. It may seem like a no-brainer, but the reality is that you may not even realize what essential nutrients are missing from your diet until an expert helps you identify them. But once you do know, you can work to incorporate healthy foods into your daily intake that give you all the nutrients you need to live your best and healthiest life.
Nutrition counseling allows you to be better educated on how nutrition impacts your everyday life, especially when battling an addiction. Addiction takes a toll on one’s physical health, from the effects of using the substance to the stress on the body during the detox process. Learning the value of good nutrition and proper hydration is critical for successful long-term sobriety.
