At Cottonwood, food is viewed as an essential part of the recovery process and is given great attention and importance. Health dietitians will work closely with you to provide you with a food diet that will give your body the right amounts of the right nutrition to promote healthy body functions. Cottonwood’s nutritionists also collaborate with Cottonwood chefs and culinary staff to create a menu that supports the neurobiological needs of all of our patients. They believe that a good recovery nutrition plan should be individualized and flexible. Cottonwood staff respects that each person has a certain taste, food culture, and metabolism and they draw their plans accordingly.

Cottonwoods experts also understand the effect that food has on mental health and how it can change one’s mood. Eating foods containing carbohydrates, proteins and fats, can provide the brain with the nutritional components necessary for the synthesis of the brain’s chemical messengers that promote emotional well-being. Based on this understanding, the Cottonwood team then creates a nutritional plan that will boost happy chemicals such as serotonin to enhance your mood.

Cottonwood also places great importance on physical activity because they believe that humans evolved to be active and that a sedentary lifestyle goes against our nature. They integrate exercise in their recovery plan to achieve physical and emotional balance and to help the mind produce a calm and happy mood. Their skilful exercise regime allows those who suffer from addictions and mood disorders to positively affect the biological component of mood and emotional difficulties.

In addition to nutrition and exercise, Cottonwood also values the spiritual aspect of the human experience. They believe spiritual growth is a vital part of the recovery process – whether it is recovery from trauma, grief or depression or from an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The staff works hard to create and maintain an environment in which patients can feel free and safe to explore their process and discover more about themselves. With the help of spiritual activities such as meditation, Cottonwood helps you bring more peace to your life.
