Nutrition & Fitness
Research shows that exercise and a nutritious diet can aid addiction recovery, and is an effective way to prevent relapse. Firstly, they can repair much of the damage done to the body after prolonged substance abuse – from your joints, muscles, and bones to your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. They even help recovering addicts regain motor skills and balance. Secondly, exercise and nutrition can help you reach or maintain weight goals, including gaining muscle mass, tone, and strength. Lastly, exercising regularly and eating nutritious foods releases endorphins and serotonin into your body – decreasing your cravings, aiding sleep, combating depression and anxiety, and improving your overall confidence.
Rehabilitation is not just about detox and therapy during inpatient treatment. It’s about a complete lifestyle overhaul. At Beachside Rehab you’ll learn new healthy routines that you will take with you once you leave our facility and implement into your new substance-free lifestyle. You will also be able to interact with like-minded people who, like you, are practicing healthy living and avoiding toxic behaviors, making it easier for you to reintegrate into society once you leave.

Beachside Rehab supports a lifestyle of good nutrition. We educate and teach our clients to implement healthy eating habits that can improve their overall level of health. With a licensed nutritionist on hand, we can counsel anyone with specific dietary needs.
Many addiction facilities don’t pay attention to the nutrition and fitness programs for rehab. As a result, those receiving help find it more difficult to stay on track.
With our help, you can change your diet for the better while implementing a fitness routine that benefits your mind and body.
