People struggling with bulimia often have emotional issues that stem from past trauma or challenging relationships. An experienced counselor will help you identify and work through these issues. They’ll draw from a number of approaches that help you change unhealthy thought patterns and behaviors. These may include approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.
Interpersonal issues are common in people who suffer from bulimia. Group therapy helps you connect with others with bulimia or similar struggles like anorexia nervosa and binge-eating disorder. Group therapy can help you work through relationship issues you have with people outside of treatment. Sometimes people experience similar interpersonal challenges with group members that they have with loved ones. A group leader helps you navigate these interactions. They’ll also bring topics to the group that are relevant to you and your peers. These may include:
The Ranch treatment programs include family therapy and family programs. Loved ones gain a better understanding of bulimia. They’ll learn that the underlying issues of bulimia symptoms go well beyond a desire to control weight. Mental health professionals will help you discuss difficult topics so you can begin moving past them. You’ll learn to communicate better and support each other.

We’ll help you change your relationship with food to one that’s about nourishment. You’ll develop healthy eating behaviors and eating habits.
Bulimia nervosa is a complex disease requiring treatment that targets the biological, psychological, interpersonal and social contributors. Many people with bulimia also suffer from co-occurring disorders such as:
Simultaneous treatment of co-occurring disorders is necessary to break the binge-purge cycle. The Ranch eating disorder treatment program addresses underlying mental illness that propels symptoms of bulimia. Bulimia and anorexia treatment includes appointments with our psychiatric team as appropriate. We’ll determine if medications may improve mental health disorder symptoms. You’ll have regular follow-up to gauge improvement and side effects. We’ll make sure you understand how to take your medications correctly.
People with bulimia also commonly struggle with a dual diagnosis of substance abuse. As needed, The Ranch will provide addiction treatment as well.
Recovery from bulimia can be a life-long journey. Inpatient treatment of eating disorders provides you a toolbox of relapse prevention skills to help you maintain recovery. You’ll learn about healthy eating and watching out for other compensatory behavior such as excessive exercising. We’ll teach you healthy coping skills to help prevent you from self-medicating by bingeing and purging.
We’ll also make sure you have proper resources in place to support you after you leave us. The Ranch helps you build an aftercare recovery program that may include resources like:

Rooms include en suite bathrooms and plush bedding and decor. Residences have welcoming gathering areas and kitchens. You’ll also enjoy soothing views of the rolling hills of Tennessee and passing wildlife.
A person with bulimia often tries to break the binge-purge cycle on their own many times without success. Just like issues such as substance abuse, it’s extremely difficult to discontinue these behaviors without intensive professional help. Residential treatment for bulimia gives you space and time to focus on yourself. You’ll have ongoing access to evidence-based treatments for bulimia. This helps you determine which approaches work best for you. You’ll also learn what triggers binges and purges and have access to professional and peer support when you’re feeling triggered.
Time in an inpatient bulimia treatment center can help prevent more damage to your physical health. Bulimia nervosa can be extremely harmful to the body. The recurrent bingeing and purging cycles can impact the entire digestive system. Purge behaviors can lead to electrolyte and chemical imbalances in the body that affect the heart and other major organ functions.
Depending on the severity and duration of your eating disorder, treatments for bulimia can hep curb or prevent some of the effects of bulimia like:
Insurance plans with behavioral health coverage consider bulimia to be a mental illness. Many will cover treatment of bulimia nervosa in similar ways as they cover other health conditions like diabetes. Your insurance may cover all or a portion of the cost of bulimia treatment. Sometimes you must meet a deductible before they begin covering the cost. Other times they cover treatment of eating disorders at a percentage of the cost. The Ranch recovery advisors will work directly with your insurance carrier to determine your benefits. We’ll make sure you understand any out-of-pocket costs.
