Nutritional program in the Adaptive Care Model™ | Our Approach | Alsana


Alsana’s approach to nutritional care in the Adaptive Care Model™ establishes a balance between physical and emotional nourishment to develop a positive and nurturing relationship with both food and body. With guidance and exposure to balanced food choices and food-related activities, you will restore your confidence in eating healthy and enjoy the experience of tasting flavorful foods.

With our “all foods fit” model, we believe in flexibility and working with you and your body to instill confidence in eating again. As in all aspects of our philosophy, we believe in healing you as a unique individual and not the disorder. Our registered dietitians and nutritional staff will work with you to establish healthy eating patterns and habits through trust, compassion, and endless support.

The Alsana Difference

Alsana’s nutrition program integrates the balance of nourishment and pleasure within real-world environments to restore a nurturing relationship between your body and food. This aspect in the program helps you learn and experience food, flavors, meals, cooking, and even shopping in a nutritional, enjoyable, and healthier way.

Nutritional Balance

Proper nutrition is critical towards healing and leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Our dietitians and nutritional staff will craft custom meal plans with you using a variety of foods and flavors. With weekly assessments, therapies, and exercises, we also offer one-on-one nutritional guidance and care. Meals are prepared in-house by our specialty chefs who use the freshest ingredients to ensure nutritious meals are as delicious as they are appealing. The meals are designed to fit your metabolic needs and our staff will monitor and customize your plan to ensure your mind and body receive all the essential nutrients they need to thrive and recover.
