Our services - Eating Disorders

A dangerous addiction.

 

Extremely complex and life-threatening, an eating disorder (ED) isn’t always thought of as an addiction. But when your relationship with food begins to negatively interfere with your life, harming you and those who care about you, an ED quickly bears an uncanny resemblance to substance abuse. In fact, nearly 50% of individuals with an eating disorder also abuse drugs or alcohol, creating a dual diagnosis.

Resulting from a variety of genetic, biological, psychological, and social factors, the following common eating disorders are generally a response to stress or problematic body image issues:

Anorexia Nervosa – Characterized by employing extreme measures to not gain weight, through restrictive or binging and purging means, including starvation, over-exercise, or self-induced vomiting.

 

Bulimia Nervosa – Refers to binging and purging methods similar to those used with anorexia, but in this case the person is at least a normal weight. Abuse of laxatives and diuretics to aid in purging is also common.

 

Binge-Eating Disorder – Chronic overeating without an ability to stop and take control of the situation.

 

Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS) – Non-specific EDs that may combine elements of the above common disorders, and that affect a person’s quality of life.
