Improve Your Health with Cedar Oaks Wellness Center
At Cedar Oaks Wellness Center, we take nutrition seriously. Many people, including yourself, may be fully aware of the toll that addiction takes on your body. Certain types of drugs can weaken your immune system, impair your breathing, lead to high blood pressure, and more. Alcohol or drug addiction can also prevent you from remembering to feed yourself. All of this is why our Cincinnati team goes above and beyond to incorporate nutritional counseling into our addiction treatment programs. Our programs strive to help you heal and gain the skills you need in recovery, and eating nutritional meals is one way you can prepare yourself for the road ahead.

How Healthy Diets Help in Recovery
When people think of rehab, they typically imagine detox programs, therapy, and support groups, but a well-balanced diet can be an essential part of the recovery process, too. For one, scheduling your meals can create a routine that many people in recovery need to have stability in their lives. When you have set mealtimes that cover all your food groups, you’re making an active choice to care for yourself and your health.
Other benefits of eating well, such as incorporating vitamins and minerals into your diet and remembering to drink plenty of water, include:
- Increased energy throughout the day
- Strengthening your immune system to fight disease and infection
- Combatting unpleasant withdrawal symptoms
- Prevent feelings of depression, anxiety, and irritability
- Boosted mood
Additionally, when you’re nourished, you’re in a better headspace to benefit from therapy and the other services rehab provides.
About Our Chef
Cedar Oaks Wellness Center knows every person’s recovery is unique—that’s why we work closely with our clients to create individualized treatment plans, which can include detox, medication-assisted treatment, and meal plans. We’re lucky to work with celebrated chef Joshua Campbell, who has more than two decades of experience bringing new flavors to the palettes of eaters all over the country.
Chef Campbell, an award-winning chef who graduated from the Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach Florida as well as the Royal Thai Culinary Academy in Bang Saen, Thailand, oversees our meal program at Cedar Oaks with our on-staff registered dietician. Together, they’re creating thoughtful meals for our clients that are both delicious and nutritionally balanced.
His goal—and ours—is to ensure our clients receive an authentic and enjoyable dining experience during their time with us. When you join us at Cedar Oaks Wellness Center, we make sure to pay close attention to your dietary preferences and restrictions in addition to your medical history and mental needs.
