Eating disorders are mental disorders with seriously damaging
physical and emotional consequences. They are not fads, phases or
behaviors that someone consciously chooses to engage in.
Eating disorders are mental disorders with seriously damaging physical and emotional consequences. They are not fads, phases or behaviors that someone consciously chooses to engage in.
You may be apprehensive, we understand. But you’ve already cleared one of the most challenging hurdles—you’ve decided to get help for your eating disorder.
Treatment for eating disorders varies depending on your particular disorder, symptoms, and needs. Treatment typically includes a combination of psychotherapy, nutrition education, medical monitoring and sometimes medications. Finding the right eating disorders treatment center is key to your success.
Here, you’ll collaborate with licensed mental health professionals, experienced in treating eating disorders, to provide psychological therapy and a Registered, Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) who is also a Certified Eating Disorders Dietitian (CEDRD). Our RDNs understand the complex nature of eating disorders and maintain their education and licensure credentials as set forth by the Florida Department of Health, Commission on Dietetic Registration, and the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals.
You will be assessed upon admission. Your disordered eating behaviors, thoughts, fears, eating patterns and motivation towards recovery will be discussed.
Next, you will meet with your RDN to assess your nutrition and craft an individualized nutrition plan, tailored to meet your specific needs. Nutrition plans vary for each client. Meals and snacks are very structured in the beginning, but as you gain confidence, motivation, and demonstrate progress, your plan becomes more flexible.
Then, you will meet individually with your therapist and your RDN three times a week. You’ll attend five process group sessions per week. Process group sessions are led by your therapist and RDN, and cover various topics such as psycho-education, body image, nutrition and metabolism, cooking and eating experientials, and intuitive, mindful eating approaches.
