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.
