Agoraphobia is a fear of open spaces, whereas claustrophobia is a fear of enclosed spaces. You may have social phobia if you become anxious and self-conscious in everyday social situations. Tunnels, highway driving, water, flying, animals, and blood are all common phobias.

How do you understand each person’s metabolism and treat them with neutralized food? And how does it change their lifestyle?
Good diet is essential for maintaining health in all respects, which has a significant impact on the healing process. Nutritional inadequacies can affect people who have struggled with addiction, trauma and mental health disorders for a long time. Their chance of developing major issues with their physical and mental health rises as a result of poor nutrition. Many people are either underweight or obese and unwell when they first enter treatment. Nutritional deficits can exacerbate mental health symptoms, which can be discouraging and make it harder to concentrate while undergoing treatment. These inadequacies could also promote cravings that might undermine a person’s efforts to recover. All our clients can order freshly cooked alacarte meals from our restaurant with meals designed by our nutritionist. We offer nutritional counseling in our entire program because we approach recovery with the mentality of teaching life skills and empowering people so they can make decisions regarding their own health.
