Lifeskills South Florida is proud to remain on the cutting edge of health and wellness in treating those with mental health issues, addictions, and dual diagnosis. In addition to our integrated wellness activities, we have created the Metabolic Fitness, designed to reduce the risk of cardiometabolic syndrome. Research literature documents that individuals with brain disorders are far more at risk for developing High Body Mass Index (BMI), hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, and hyperglycemia. More specifically, individuals utilizing psychotropic medications face increased issues with medication side effects (fatigue and increased appetite). Thus, increasing the need for a comprehensive focus on the comorbid conditions.
With a dual wellness focus on treating the body and mind, Lifeskills has implemented Metabolic Fitness, tending to physical and mental health concurrently. This pathway is designed to work in conjunction with the five other clinical pathways to give our clients a comprehensive treatment experience.
Weekly Nursing led groups addressing varied physical health curriculum from sleep hygiene to smoking cessation
Genetic testing to determine the best psychotropic medication matches for the individual’s metabolism
Individual nutritional assessment and consultations
A Masters level nutritionist led groups focused on food choice, menu development, caloric intake, preparing healthy choices, eating habits and much more.
On-site heated pool
Whether a person’s goal is improving balance, losing weight or improving flexibility, Metabolic Fitness makes it specific to their individual needs to improve their overall well-being.
Our team recognizes the various issues related to cardiometabolic syndrome, physical wellness, sedentary lifestyle, medication side effects, and other critical factors individuals with comorbid conditions face. With specifically designed programming, progressing into a healthy and active lifestyle can become a reality.
