Reduce Relapse! Save Lives!

Welcome To Academy for
Addiction & Mental Health Nutrition

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 using amino acid and nutrient therapy, along with diet to effectively address many biochemical aspects of addictive and mood/behavioral disorders.

Registration for the upcoming Level 1 Core Training starting on May 23, 2023 is open!

Amino Acids and Dietary Strategies to powerfully support addiction and mental health recovery. Effectively reduce cravings, withdrawal symptoms, depression, anxiety, irritability and insomnia. By the end of this cutting-edge training, you will have a greatly expanded understanding of why what and when we eat matters to recovery and emotional well-being, and you will have a greatly expanded toolkit from which to create policy as well as to support client improvement.
