Health & Wellness Q & A

How does physical health affect recovery?

Substance abuse and addiction create disharmony in your body. Addiction can prevent you from eating regularly, and also from eating a healthy, balanced diet. Prolonged substance use can result in nutritional deficiency, reduced immune system function, and increased risk for severe health complications such as liver disease and other potentially deadly conditions. 

Taking steps to improve your diet and overall wellness during addiction recovery can help restore balance within your body and may reverse the harmful physical effects of substance abuse.

What is the link between health and wellness and relapse?

Addiction often results from substance abuse that arises when you have trouble coping with environmental stressors such as work, family, or economic problems, and the negative emotions that such stressors create. Relapse prevention is an integral part of addiction recovery during which you learn healthy strategies for coping with stress, negative emotions, and other factors that trigger the urge to use substances.

When your overall health and wellness are robust, you’re more equipped to handle day to day stress. When you get enough rest, eat a nutritious diet, and stay active, it's easier for you to control your response to distressing situations. Strategies to process your emotions are also integral to your emotional wellness, which is an important part of your overall health.

When difficult situations no longer generate overwhelming negative feelings, there’s less chance that you’ll feel the urge to use substances as a coping mechanism.
