Eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder are characterized by extreme emotions, attitudes and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. These disorders can be all-consuming and life-threatening. Generally, compulsive and overly restrictive eating behaviors are unhealthy coping skills individuals develop in the face of complex biological, psychological and social issues.
Effective eating disorder treatment requires a comprehensive therapeutic approach like ours at The Ranch eating disorder center, which helps eliminate the “acting out” of symptoms while providing specialized care to address deep emotional wounds, environmental factors, interpersonal issues and co-occurring mental health disorders.
