The Role of Nutrition and Fitness in Recovery

Tips for Achieving Balanced Living

A balanced lifestyle is crucial for successful addiction recovery. This includes not only the psychological and emotional aspects of recovery, but also physical health, fitness, and nutrition, which is why we’re outlining their significance in the addiction recovery process and how our center integrates these aspects into our treatment programs.

Nutrition in Addiction Recovery

Nutrition plays a pivotal role in recovery from substance abuse. Chronic use of drugs and alcohol can negatively affect metabolism, organ function, and mental well-being. Balanced nutrition is an essential part of repairing and rewiring the brain and body from substance dependency.

Eating plenty of complex carbohydrates is beneficial during recovery, as they help the body produce serotonin, therefore reducing cravings. Furthermore, proper nutrition can boost your immune system, reduce stress and anxiety, and help rebuild your physical strength. At Mount Sinai Wellness Center, we are proud to offer nutrition education sessions to help individuals understand the importance of a balanced diet and learn practical methods of self-care.

Exercise in Addiction Recovery

Exercise is another indispensable component of addiction recovery. Physical activity effectively helps control cravings and mitigates withdrawal symptoms while also aiding in the removal of toxins from the body. Regular exercise also improves physical health, reduces stress, and boosts one’s mood.

At Mount Sinai Wellness Center, our residents have access to a variety of fitness activities, including yoga, hiking, and horseback riding, all designed to promote physical health and mental well-being as a way to aid in addiction recovery.
