rehab program

As a part of the Inspirations for Youth and Families Nutritional and Life Skills course the teens in our rehab program are taught how to create healthy and fulfilling meals. They have learned how to make smoothies, cookies and now soup!

These recipes are taught as hands on approach to nutrition and allow the teens in our rehab program to learn independence. Our drug rehab program clients are safely taught how to prep, cook and serve these delicious meals which they often can’t wait to go home and replicate for family and friends.

Together our teens worked in teams to create bean and puree cauliflower soup for fellow clients and Inspirations staff. They were also taught the nutritional benefits of each soup and why they should eat healthy.
