The Role of Diet and Nutrition in Addiction Recovery

Substance use disorder (or SUD; a term that covers both substance abuse and addiction) has profound negative effects not just on a person’s mental health, but also their physical well-being as well. People with severe SUD do not often consider a healthy diet to be a priority. As a result, many people entering rehab also suffer from malnutrition in addition to SUD. 

Diet and nutrition have played a key part in addiction recovery for almost as long as rehabs have existed. Even before we developed our modern understanding of nutrition, most cultures the world over have made connections between one’s diet and their physical state.

Milagro Opens Today in Trinity Groves

Trinity Groves is a treasure trove of good food, from top-notch Italian to modern Chinese. Soon, the West Dallas dining destination will expand with Milagro, a new taco-focused restaurant from Jesus Carmona, the chef behind the beloved Tacos Mariachi, that is slated to open this month.

Tacos Mariachi opened in 2015 on Singleton Boulevard, just down the street from Trinity Groves, and it quickly drew a loyal crowd of diners—it even drew in Guy Fieri, who featured the show on “Diners, Drive-In and Dives.” Unfortunately, Carmona had to close his restaurant in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, Carmona focused his attention on his Argentinian bistro in the Bishop Arts District, Chimichurri.  Shortly after opening, Carmona was contacted by the Trinity Groves group to relocate the original Tacos Mariachi two blocks down to the new retail space located in Phase Two of the new apartment buildings.
