Eating Disorder Recovery Retreat is a specialized week-long intensive program. Immersive Healing Center has a proven track record of helping people overcome their eating disorders and find a fulfilling life of recovery.
Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by a complex set of physical and psychological symptoms pertaining to weight loss and self-image. An individual becomes fixated on losing weight to the point of exercising obsessively and implementing starvation practices. The accompanying mental health component, which involves pervasive fears of becoming overweight and paranoia that others are lying to them, makes this eating disorder very difficult to treat with traditional therapies. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) reports that among other interventions, family treatment has proven to be the most beneficial in ushering those suffering from anorexia into long-term recovery.
Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder that involves incidences of overeating and subsequent purging through self-induced vomiting and the use of laxatives and diuretics. Other purging behaviors may include fasting and vigorous exercise, prompting comparisons to anorexia nervosa. While some behaviors and thought processes may be consistent among both bulimia and anorexia, such as an obsession with body image and shape, the psychology of the sufferers is markedly different. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), anorexic individuals hold themselves in high esteem for their food deprivation practices; bulimic individuals carry out their behaviors under the weight of extreme shame and guilt.
3. Binge Eating Disorder
Binge eating disorder (BED) is a condition in which individuals repeatedly consume large amounts of food as a result of compulsion, not hunger. This also involves eating faster than usual and eating until uncomfortably full. BED often coincides with mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, and binge eating episodes result in the individual feeling shame, guilt, and disgust over his or her lack of control over eating. According to the National Institute on Biotechnology, BED will affect roughly 3% of US adults at some point in their lives and is recognized as the most common eating disorder.
Eating disorders often occur in tandem with other mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance abuse. An eating disorder may be brought on or exacerbated by trauma, or it may cause depression. Substances like drugs or alcohol may play a role in an eating disorder, or they may be used to numb pain or sadness caused by the disorder.
Whether co-occurring disorders precede or are precipitated by eating disorders, it’s just as necessary to address these issues as to address the eating disorder itself in order to achieve lasting recovery. Co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis treatment addresses any combination of more than one mental health disorder and/or addiction. If you only treat the eating disorder and leave co-occurring mental health problems to continue unchecked, long-term recovery is put at risk. That’s why It’s important that targeted eating disorder treatment also uncovers and treats any other disorders that are happening alongside the eating disorder.
We know that recovery from an eating disorder is absolutely possible. For additional information about the treatment of eating disorders, please connect with one of our experienced intake coordinators.
