WH Healthy Recovery
Welcome House is committed to supporting residents in a healthy recovery. When an individual is recovering from substance use disorder, lifestyle changes in diet and exercise can have a significantly positive effect on overall health and a successful recovery.
Healthy nutrition is integrated in the Welcome House Core Recovery Program through a variety of ways – through healthy dining options, educational opportunities, and access to many resources for adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Welcome House has a full-time chef who plans and prepares fresh and healthy menus to support residents in achieving and maintaining sobriety in short-term recovery. They also benefit from additional knowledge, training, and practical support to draw upon in long-term recovery.
Visit the Welcome House Recovery Resources pages to learn more about health and nutrition in recovery, helpful tips, and recipes.
