Individuals who are dependent on alcohol and opioids tend to opt for solutions that offer immediate relief. In the process, they overlook nutrient-rich foods that offer sustainable benefits. In this way, alcohol and opioid dependency can lead to deficiencies in key vitamins such as zinc, vitamin C, and B vitamins. These vitamins help to detox the body and provide energy.
Repleting the body with these key nutrients can help to not only improve nutritional status in recovery and abstinence but can also help to curb cravings and enhance mental health.
