Wellness Connection in Recovery
Addiction is a challenge. Those recovering from addiction may face temptations every day.

Following a wellness-oriented lifestyle may help those who have recovered from addiction avoid relapse. Tackling one addiction at a time makes the changes easier. Smokers should work on the nicotine habit 12 to 18 months after a more pressing addiction has been handled.

The Mediterranean diet and vegan diet can improve health and wellness.

Listen as Dr. John Newport joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how people in recovery can improve their wellness.
