Considering Treatment Options for Recovery


Though the idea of obtaining treatment for an eating disorder may be overwhelming, confusing, and stressful, finding a professional treatment team who specialize in eating disorders can be one of your most powerful and successful resources in your recovery journey.  Eating disorders are very complex diseases that can have severe health consequences if left untreated, and having the help of a specialized eating disorder treatment team is the absolute best course of action to take when recovery is desired and needed.  Additionally, there are situations were inpatient residential treatment may be the necessary course of action to take in order to effectively begin recovery.  While this generally involves a stay at a treatment center for 30-90 days, these treatment centers have staff and services that focus on addressing the multiple needs of their patients. Treatment is multi-faceted and often includes group counseling, individual therapy, nutrition counseling, art therapy and more.  If you or a loved one is suffering from an eating disorder and other forms of treatment have not been effective, considering inpatient residential treatment may be a life-saving decision.  If you would like to learn more about what to expect at an inpatient treatment center, please listen to this interview to gain some encouraging insight.
