Rewired Radio Interview with Erica Spiegelman on RadioMD.com
Segment 1 Title: Beyond calories: the importance of nutrition
Segment 2 Title: Healthful eating in addiction recovery: a meal plan for addicts in treatment programs
Segment Information: Introducing the concept of nutrition into an addiction treatment program is not an easy task. Many addicts in early recovery are not ready for health behavior change, since most are simply trying to get past the immediate crisis of addiction and the associated life adjustments of abstinence. In fact, sobriety can magnify pre-existing dysfunctional eating behavior. My guest today, David Wiss, is the founder of Nutrition In Recovery, which specializes in the nutritional management of Food Addiction, Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, Weight Management, Sports Nutrition, and General Wellness. He’ll share his expertise on why nutrition is an essential component of successful treatment programs.

Segment 3 Title: What is integrative treatment?
Brief Segment Description: Eating disorders and addiction are often treated separately but there are many underlying behaviors and issues that overlap and would benefit from a more integrated approach. In addition, addiction treatment may often foster unhealthy behaviors and attitudes towards food and nutrition. Many treatment centers are recognizing these links and integrating nutrition into addiction treatment programs. My guest today, David Wiss, is a leading voice in integrative treatment and will talk about why nutrition-inclusive plans are the future of addiction treatment.
