Eating Disorders Treatment

The Effects of Eating Disorders

Studies show that over 10 million Americans struggle with an eating disorder. Those who suffer from eating disorders also suffer from mental health and/or body image issues.

Eating disorders, such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating, can be life-threatening if left untreated. For example, 20 percent of people struggling with an eating disorder will die, with Anorexia Nervosa having the highest death rate of any psychiatric illness.

It is important to attend a treatment program assisted by psychologists, therapists, case managers, physicians and nurses. There are treatment centers that provide professional and compassionate care to each patient.

The Type of Treatment Should Patients Expect

Medical professionals will administer a biopsychosocial assessment as well as a physical order to determine the cause of the patient’s eating disorder. Every patient must participate in this process because it can help find other underlying conditions that may need further treatment.

During treatment, patients should expect to receive supervision, as well as:

  • 24 Hour meal supervision
  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Family and group therapy
  • Medication supervision
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Case studies
  • Meetings scheduled with associated disorder groups
  • Personalized recovery treatment
  • Meal planning
  • Coping with stress
  • Holistic programs in art therapy or yoga

Not only will treatment teach coping skills and healthy eating but they will also teach how to cultivate positive self-esteem. The power of self-esteem in significantly underestimated; it can affect everything about you, such as how you feel about yourself and what possibilities your life is capable of.

Self-esteem has the power to effect:

  • The possibilities of success or failure
  • Thought process and views about the world
  • Self-image dealing positively or negatively
  • Valuing yourself and others
  • Employment viewpoints
  • Feelings of happiness, health and wellness
