Reduce Relapse! Save Lives!

Address the Biochemical Leg of the Recovery Stool Using the Power of  Amino Acid Therapy

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.


✓ We’ll take you through an exciting journey that will open doors in the world of recovery!
✓ We’ll explain how you can apply amino acid in your nutrition training and skills to clients who are struggling with mental health or addictive issues
✓ You’ll also have an opportunity to get your questions about our Amino Acid Therapy Level 1 Core Training answered.

Success Stories

Bryce Arnett

First and foremost, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you for putting together the recent conference in KC. I don’t think my brain has swelled so much since college, what, with all of that delicious information I absorbed! Your intelligence and passion when it comes to mental health and amino acid therapy is breathtakingly beautiful. When I think of all the lives you’ve bettered and/or saved, I not only feel emotional, I feel a deep-rooted desire to serve others in the same fashion. You see, people are my passion, and it’s taken my entire adult life to finally discover how I can utilize that passion for the greater good. And for that, I want to thank you.

Steve S. Addiction Counselor

I want to say how much I enjoyed the class and the information presented and how much sense this all makes if you stop and look at it. The alcohol relapse and hypoglycemia is spot on. I think if we can just get the recovering person to embrace this one factor, things would be so much different for them. Thank you for the work you do and your sincerity in this. It shows how much you care.

    Do you desire to make a difference in the world by helping people to create a successful recovery?​

    We are creating an opportunity to educate the world about a commonsense solution – nutritious, healthy food eaten regularly. 

    One of the simplest, most widely accessible ways to support vibrant recovery is within everyone’s reach. The message is clear that eating protein every 4 hours within a well balanced diet significantly reduces cravings. This has been researched for over 60 years, this incredible research and clinical experience is not well known. 

    Hospitals, recovery centers, and state substance use agencies have always struggled to provide successful treatment. Now is the time to tell everyone the good news about a simple idea that really has impact: Healthy, protein-rich foods eaten regularly reduce cravings. Try it for yourself!
