As an Integrative Therapist, the first thing that happens when I start to adjust the food part of my intervention, is fear! A typical client realizes that they have been using food to handle their feelings, when the terror sets in, because certain foods will be boxed out. This is understandable, and more importantly where the "Therapy" will occur. When anyone stops using their substance or vice, the reality of their world shows up, and escaping is no longer an option. You need tools, and skills, and that's where we start working!
