If you are suffering from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, or Binge Eating Disorder, you are not alone. More than 8 million women and men develop eating disorders, most of them by the age of 20.
People with eating disorders have an unhealthy relationship with food and a preoccupation with weight that can lead to devastating consequences. If you have an eating disorder, you have likely experienced several of the following eating disorder symptoms:
- Negative body image
- A preoccupation with losing weight
- Consuming excessive amounts of food or refusing to eat
- Excessive exercising
- Dizziness or fainting
- Irregular heart rate
- Menstrual irregularities
Eating Disorder Treatment
Without professional anorexia treatment, bulimia treatment, or Binge Eating Disorder treatment, the symptoms of your eating disorder can become life-threatening.
Putting an end to your disordered eating can be difficult without the right type of treatment. An eating disorder treatment center can help you end your unhealthy relationship with food and identify the underlying causes of your eating disorder.
Eating disorder treatment centers provide support through eating disorder groups and individual therapy. At a treatment center for anorexia, bulimia, or Binge Eating Disorder, you can work with registered dieticians to develop healthy meal plans and special diets. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and expressive art therapies are often used in the treatment of eating disorders.
If you are experiencing a co-occurring disorder such as Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, or an anxiety disorder along with anorexia, bulimia, or Binge Eating Disorder, an eating disorder treatment center with the proper resources can effectively treat those as well.
