Studies show that diet and general wellness relate very closely to each other. However, after months or years of substance abuse, your overall wellness suffered. This reason is why you need to rebuild your body through proper diet and exercise. It’s also why many people recovering from addiction use nutritional therapy to prepare them for their new and better lives.
What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy treats medical conditions, including drug addiction and alcohol dependence. For this therapy, you gain a diet designed just for your needs. An experienced professional develops your eating plan to reach your wellness goals and help you achieve a healthy weight. A nutrition therapist, dietician, nutritionist, or other medical professional monitors your progress on the diet.
To develop your eating plan, the therapist reviews your health history, physical condition, and eating habits. If you suffer from allergies, then those gain consideration, too. One goal of nutritional therapy is for your diet to fit into your life and daily routine easily. However, the benefits far outweigh any “fast food.”
When Do You Start a Nutritional Therapy Program?
Nutritional therapy begins early in your treatment at Ardu Recovery Center in Provo, Utah. In fact, you start getting the healthy foods you need during your detox program. This continues through your residential treatment with your therapist, counselor, or other staff monitoring how you follow the program.
Your nutritional therapy also prepares you for life at home to help you remain healthy and strong. This therapy teaches you how to use a balanced diet to keep cravings away, too. Additionally, our program proves especially helpful for people with dual diagnosis disorders. Nutrition has a positive effect on mental health, just like it does physical health.
What Therapies Work Well With Nutrition?
Your nutritional therapy program only makes up one part of a much broader approach to wellness after addiction. The therapy works particularly well in programs with holistic approaches, such as those of Ardu Recovery Center. These holistic methods in Provo include:
- The amino acid IV therapy

Of course, nutrition is a basic need for your healthiest life. Therefore, a nutritional therapy program complements all facets of your detox, residential, or outpatient treatment programs at Ardu Recovery. Other therapies you receive at Ardu Recovery Center in Provo include:
- Individual and group therapy
