“Learning the ideas behind Positive Nutrition has been a critical part of my recovery. I am confident in how to care for myself and I no longer feel drawn toward fad diets. I feel more confident in my
body—which is a huge reason I've relapsed in the past. This is life-changing and so essential for anyone in recovery!”

THIS CURRICULUM BENEFITS YOU & YOUR COMMUNITY
This done-for-you, evidence-based nutrition curriculum benefits you as the registered dietitian because you can feel confident in providing a valuable service that truly enhances recovery. As a private practice dietitian, it's saving you hundreds of hours of digging through the research and testing methods out in group. And, there's nothing better than reliable monthly income for a person in business for yourself—teaching a weekly nutrition group in a treatment center can bring in anywhere from $800-$1500+ per month.
This curriculum also truly benefits folks in recovery because it's often the first time people hear about a non-diet, positive approach to nutrition and health. Learning about these things can save lives and prevent relapse. Dietitians in this setting can make a huge difference!
