TITLE: Nutrition for Substance Use Disorder Recovery: Gut-Brain

David Wiss MS RDN 

DESCRIPTION

The prevalence of substance use disorders continues to rise with a significant impact on families, communities, and the healthcare system. The current opioid crisis suggests a need to re-assess entrenched treatment protocols for addictive disorders. Classically, treatment includes mental health services such as psychopharmacology and individual and group therapy sessions. There is little data about the role of physiological recovery particularly nutrition during early recovery. It is well known that substance use disorders are associated with neglected health including nutritional deficiencies. There is recent evidence linking the gut and brain, suggesting that proper dietary intake is critical for mental health. Substance use disorder treatment protocols may benefit from including nutrition services as a treatment modality.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the impact of addictive substances on nutritional status and gastrointestinal health
  2. Explore disordered and dysfunctional eating patterns in addicted populations
  3. Propose nutrition therapy guidelines for specific substances and for poly-substance abuse

American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting

San Diego Convention Center, November 10-14, 2018

TITLE: Nutrition Interventions for Substance Use Disorder Recovery

David Wiss MS RDN 

DESCRIPTION

With substance use disorder rates rising, there is an urgent need for new and effective treatment modalities. The utilization of nutrition services in addiction treatment has not been standardized, but there is a growing trend towards incorporating registered dietitian nutritionists into the treatment team. Nutrition therapy should address the most serious medical and nutritional conditions first and then target the psychological and behavioral aspects of eating. This comprehensive overview explores the impact of alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine, and opioids on nutritional status. This presentation places particular emphasis on gut health, microbiome, and associated neural interactions. Homeostatic and hedonic mechanisms of eating behavior are discussed in the context of eating disorders and food addiction. In summarizing the available published evidence on human subjects, a case is made for both individual nutrition counseling and group education, as well as the implementation of food service guidelines in treatment settings. Given the current crisis of addictive disorders, consideration should be given to prioritizing efforts to improve eating habits and overall health in recovery programs. By promoting positive recovery outcomes, nutrition may reduce costs and improve resource allocation. Public health measures promoting nutrition standards in treatment settings should be implemented. Guidelines for nutrition interventions will be proposed, and a summary of where more information is needed will point towards future directions.
