The Importance of Nutrition in Recovery - The Meadows Malibu


Healing happens from the inside out.

Nutrition Plays a Significant Role in Addiction Recovery - The Meadows Malibu

When it comes to recovering from substance use and mental health conditions, nutrition plays a significant role. Patients often arrive in treatment with bodies and minds that have endured the toxicity of drug and alcohol use. Unhealthy or irregular eating habits have likely contributed to and even perpetuated a person’s level of impairment. Eating healthy meals — and learning how to care for your body — is instrumental in achieving long-term wellness.

Emphasizing Nutrition and Wellness iN Recovery

Food is so much more than food. It’s energy, it’s nutrients, it helps you replenish your body. What we put into our body is what we’re going to get out of our body, so it’s important to put energizing and nourishing items into our system — especially during the treatment process.

For most of our patients, this requires a perspective shift: Instead of seeing the body as a thing to be used or simply to medicate, a person begins to see the body as a vessel to respect, nourish, and care for. You can’t neglect the body and expect to function successfully. This is one reason why we make nutrition and wellness a focal point The Meadows Malibu.

Going Beyond the Kitchen

It’s more than just serving healthy, delicious food and having a private chef on-site every day. It’s about nutrition education so patients can continue eating healthy once they return home. Our chef also takes into consideration not only individuals’ dietary needs and restrictions, but also their personal preferences and requests. She cooks with organic, non-GMO, local foods as much as possible.
