Addiction Recovery: A Meal Plan for Addicts in Treatment
Introducing the concept of nutrition into an addiction treatment program is not an easy task. 

Many addicts in early recovery are not ready for health behavior changes, since most are simply trying to get past the immediate crisis of addiction and the associated life adjustments of abstinence. 

In fact, sobriety can magnify pre-existing dysfunctional eating behavior.

David Wiss is the founder of Nutrition In Recovery, which specializes in the nutritional management of food addiction, substance abuse, eating disorders, weight management, sports nutrition, and general wellness. 

He shares his expertise on why nutrition is an essential component of successful treatment programs.
