E-book: Expanding Your Horizon
Welcome to the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition and our introductory e-book, Expanding the Horizons: Integrating Nutritional Intervention into Private Practice & Treatment. In this introduction to our concepts and methods, we will present the Three Tiers of Nutritional Intervention and describe each step along the way.
The Academy for Addiction & Mental Health Nutrition believes that all addictive disorders, as well as MANY MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, are driven by nutrient and neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain that can often be successfully addressed without the need for psychotropic medication.
A stable, well-functioning, and well-nourished brain is required for clients to effectively address the emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual issues which impact their lives and need to be worked through for a successful recovery.
We teach clinicians, treatment providers, and health/recovery coaches how to reduce cravings and recurrent use and improve the quality of recovery by helping clients to address the “3rd Leg of the Recovery Stool – their brains - using amino acid and nutrient therapy, along with diet.
We hope this e-book will give you a strategy or roadmap for effectively integrating this approach into your practice or program.
