Types of Eating Disorders

The Recovery Village’s eating disorder treatment center offers a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who work with clients to evaluate all contributing factors of these conditions. While generally characterized by controlling diet and exercise, obsession with weight or negative body image, eating disorders are complex psychological disorders. Most types of eating disorders have underlying emotional components, so only addressing the eating habits or behaviors won’t be enough to recover. Professional interventions are necessary, and The Recovery Village has a dedicated eating disorder treatment program in Florida, complete with a medical stabilization, intensive inpatient and outpatient services to help get you started on your road to full recovery.

Do I Need An Eating Disorder Recovery Center?

Stress, anxiety and depression are overwhelming and controlling diet often becomes a way to channel that energy into a different source. As a result of not addressing feelings with healthy coping skills, the control over diet can become disordered. When someone has an eating disorder, nearly every minute of every day is focused on food, weight gain, and weight loss. It is an illness that causes serious disturbances to your everyday diet, such as eating extremely small amounts of food or severely overeating. Thoughts and activities become obsessively dependent on these areas. But it’s important to remember that not everyone who struggles with an eating disorder will always have the same characteristics or fit a specific definition. Many people have heard of anorexia and bulimia, but the truth is there are many types of eating disorders, and each requires a special focus of treatment. No two people suffering from eating disorders are the same, so no two treatment plans should be exactly alike, either. The purpose of an eating recovery center is to promote healthy coping skills paired with evaluating the causes and beliefs at work that have made diet a negative behavior cycle.

Our Center for Eating Disorder Treatment

Symptoms of eating disorders can vary, and since abnormal eating behaviors can occur in secret, family and friends may not be immediately aware that there is a problem. Eating disorders frequently appear during the teen years or young adulthood but may also develop during childhood or later in life and can happen to both men and women. Each individual has a unique experience and manner they use to approach the challenging aspects of life. Being in a safe and positive environment with professional support and guidance is important to re-establishing healthy dietary and nutritional goals, as well as evaluating the causes and contributing factors which lead to disordered eating. The most effective and long-lasting treatment for an eating disorder is designed with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs coupled with psychological counseling. The Recovery Village’s eating disorder treatment center provides a multi-disciplinary treatment team, so each individual has a treatment team that specializes in different aspects of their recovery. This range of care personally tailored to our clients’ individual needs develops a foundation for which long lasting recovery can be built.
