In brief: Depends on cause
Pancreatitis takes a while to heal and depending on the cause you can facilitate the process.
Alcohol is the commonest cause of pancreatitis and abstinence is mandatory. If pancreatitis is due to hyper-triglyceridemia, diet and drug treatment may be needed. If you have biliary disease causing pancreatitis then that will need to be addressed.
