Treating Eating Disorders
IDENTIFYING EATING DISORDERS
ndividuals with disrupted or dysregulated eating habits often suffer physically, mentally, emotionally, and even socially. This inhibits that person’s ability to concentrate and enjoy many aspects of his or her life. But there is hope.
WHAT WE TREAT
How Do Eating Disorders Start?
Many factors can contribute to eating disorders. There are also just as many methodologies that can be employed to treat them. The needs of each individual struggling with an eating disorder varies. For that reason, it is critical to engage the assistance of a medical professional, counselor, and nutritionist. These experienced addictions and mental health professionals understand all of the underlying or co-occurring factors that contribute to the disorder.
The best eating disorder treatment programs use comprehensive care that evaluate and treat all facets of an individual’s life, helping them:
- Identify core drivers of eating disorder or disordered eating
- Manage eating disorder symptoms
- Regain and maintain a healthy weight
- Enhance physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
Getting Help For Eating Disorders
Seeking help for an eating disorder can be challenging. Managing the disorder can be an even greater challenge. The first step is finding a medical professional whom you trust. For the best results, constant communication with your doctor, psychologist, nutritionist, and other members of your treatment team is essential to ensure a unified approach to the healing process that is right for the individual.
