As you have been learning in chapter ten, what you eat and how you take care of your body can significantly impact the success of your recovery program. Unfortunately, not much information is available on how nutrition and your health are specifically affected by alcohol and/or drug use. Therefore, on Enterhealth Connect, we created hours of in-depth information and exercises to teach you the latest scientifically-based skills in this critical area of your life. So in addition to reading chapter ten in Healing the Addicted Brain, Dr. Urschel strongly recommends that you work through all four of the eLessons on nutrition.
When you get to the end of this set of four eLessons, please click the continue arrow and it will take you right into the next eLesson.
Also, we highly encourage your family members or loved ones to work through these Health and Nutrition eLessons on their own as well, so that they can get back into healthy eating and healthful habits. If they do so, you will have a much higher chance of success in changing your old habits for the long run.
