Nutrition Therapy At Acqua Recovery

We view food as a way to fuel the body so that you feel good, look good, and live life to the fullest. Our specifically tailored diet is designed to aid in detox and a speedy recovery for a healthy, focused individual. Every meal has protein, good fats, and complex carbohydrates.

Acqua’s menus provide the nutrients to your cells for your body to begin functioning well again. At Acqua, we serve three carefully planned meals a day and provide healthy protein snacks and water throughout the day. We also discourage the consumption of too much sugar and sodium.

Benefits Of Nutrition Therapy

When you struggle with addiction, many other parts of your life suffer as well. Drug abuse can destroy your appetite, cause weight loss or gain, and lead to other unhealthy habits. By developing a proper diet through our nutrition therapy program, you can begin to revitalize your life along with proven addiction treatment.

A combination of therapies, along with our nutrition therapy program, can help you build a foundation for recovery. This foundation will guide you back into your daily life without the fears of relapse. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll be equipped with resources and training you need to cope with stressors and triggers in your life.

Organic Garden

Nutrition for recovery is intended to support the body as it undergoes the physical changes and healing associated with drug and alcohol addiction recovery. At the same time, that diet supports the immune system overall—a helpful benefit in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our pro-recovery diet features organic fruits and vegetables, grown from our own organic garden tended to by our very own Chef Camille! We pride ourselves on serving fresh farm-to-table ingredients so our patients get all the nutrients they need to live a healthier lifestyle.
