Suffering from an eating disorder of any kind—whether it’s bulimia, anorexia, binge eating, compulsive overeating or food addiction—is painful for the individual. Often the person suffering feels isolated, alone, and hopeless, and moves through their life burdened by deep feelings of shame and guilt. The behavior associated with an eating disorder can be confusing to loved ones and friends, creating misunderstanding and leaving them uncertain about what to do and how to support their loved one who is suffering.
It is not uncommon for us to see clients who are intelligent, and high-achieving, often times accomplished and talented, with a tendency toward perfectionism. This combination of tendencies can make it very hard for them to find a recovery path on their own. In fact, failed attempts to recover on their own can further their shame and guilt. Successful recovery from an eating disorder happens with treatment that helps the client let go of their perfectionistic tendencies, especially as it applies to the recovery process.
In addition to a fixation with perfection, often the afflicted person suffers from co-occurring difficulties or dual-diagnosis with substance abuse and/or other associated mental health disorders. These can also get in the way of finding sustainable recovery. Grief, loss, trauma and depression can make it extremely difficult for your loved one to escape from their eating disorder because the disordered behavior is a means of coping with negative feelings and stress. We understand and treat these complexities through our multi-disciplinary eating disorder treatment programs.
We take a holistic approach to recovery, addressing the needs of the client as a whole—their mind, body, spirit, feelings, emotions, and sense of purpose.

An eating disorder causes complex psychological problems and often times can cause serious medical conditions. Eating disorders are not limited to girls and women—they increasingly occur in boys and men as well. Expert treatment is necessary, regardless of a person’s gender. Unfortunately, eating disorders are often unrecognized or seen as simply as a self-esteem problem rather than a psychological disorder requiring more than personal conviction and self- control to overcome.
Often times, an individual suffering with an eating disorder has other conditions that can contribute to or complicate this malady. Every person is different, with unique needs and concerns—this is why an individualized recovery program for Bulimia Treatment, Binge Eating Treatment, Overeating Treatment and Anorexia Treatment is essential. Eating disorders are serious health conditions that can be both emotionally and physically destructive. If left untreated, an eating disorder can become chronic, debilitating, and even life threatening. In fact, eating disorders have the highest morbidity rate of ANY mental health issue and thus require expert treatment with a comprehensive program that addresses the whole person, not just their relationship to food. Eating disorder treatment is necessary for Recovery for a Lifetime.
