But meal planning at Genesis takes far more into account than just kosher. We believe that just like anything else we humans do, food has a tremendous impact on our overall emotional well-being. We strongly believe that a well-balanced diet is a critical part of the overall wellness plan in helping our patients to recover and to live meaningful and joyful lives.
Genesis provides a hybrid approach to the daily preparation and cooking of food. We have a fabulous on-site Chef who works closely with our patients to help educate them about healthy eating habits. As part of their careful easing back into life and gentle acclimation to independent healthy living, we take our patients grocery shopping and guide them as they help with meal preparation. Structured discharge planning is crucial for continued sobriety.
When appropriate and necessary we also prepare fresh, healthy, tasty, and of course, kosher meals for our patients. We believe this holistic approach is an integral part of our patients' journey to recovery, one that is sustainable, long-lasting, and allows them to grow and lead their best life.
