Foods that Support a Healthier Recovery

Foods that Support a Healthier Recovery

Silver Ridge

Whether you’re just beginning your recovery journey or you started years ago, you should always make an effort to keep yourself healthy in every way possible. One of the main ways you can do that is by incorporating healthy foods into your diet. After all, the right foods can better fuel your body for a healthier recovery.

Healthy Eating During Recovery

Lung-Healthy Foods

Addiction can have a big impact on your lungs, especially if you smoked drugs or you fell into a more inactive lifestyle. Foods that contain high amounts of antioxidants and magnesium are good for improving lung function, as well as those that are high in omega-3’s. These can include dark, leafy greens, salmon, berries, and apples.

Brain-Healthy Food

Long-term substance abuse can lead to impaired brain function, such as memory loss or an inability to perform certain actions. While this can be remedied via certain therapies, eating foods that are high in omega-3’s, flavonoids, and those packed with vitamins and minerals can improve your brain function and restore brain cells. These can include green tea, citrus fruits, avocados, and ginger.

Liver-Healthy Foods

Certain substances, such as alcohol, can take a heavy toll on your liver and cause poor function as well as a number of other health problems. To repair your liver from the effects of substance abuse, eat plenty of antioxidant-rich foods, such as broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, grapefruits, pears, and garlic.

At Silver Ridge, we are here to provide adults struggling with substance abuse issues with the treatments and tools they need to lead a healthier life. If you or someone you know is battling addiction, contact us today to get help.
