  7. Dr Poonam Rampal- PhD (Dietician) Proper nutrition and hydration are key to the substance abuse healing process because they help restore physical and mental health and improve the chance for recovery. Macro and micro nutrient deficiencies due to prolonged substance abuse can lead to symptoms of depression, anxiety, and low energy all of which can trigger a relapse.

    Our program targets substance abuse prevention and addresses nutrition because healthful lifestyle can promote mental health. And for those who are battling substance, nutrition plays the same key role in maintaining recovery while also improving the resulting health conditions and deficiencies.

    Individualized nutritional counseling provided to the patients significantly improves the sobriety period, addresses their specific risk factors and increases their chances of recovery. Medical nutrition therapy targets the following goals-

    •  heal and nourish the body damaged by alcohol or substance abuse;

    • stabilize mood and reduce stress;

    • reduce cravings for drugs and alcohol;

    • encourage self care and healthy lifestyle;
