Anorexia and Bulimia Treatment
You're certainly not alone if you're struggling with an eating disorder. In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life. An eating disorder can have a devastating impact on your physical health, your mental health, your relationships with people you love and your overall well-being.
You can take back your life, even if you feel your relationship with food has taken it over, because treatment for anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders is available. Our treatment center uses our proprietary CAMSA treatment model for anorexia nervosa treatment and bulimia nervosa treatment, giving our patients the best chance at success. Read on to discover the different types of treatment for anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and other eating disorders and how these methods can help you.
Outpatient Services and Aftercare
Our outpatient and aftercare services are meant to offer the support you need to maintain your recovery over the long term. Our therapists, registered dietitians and psychiatrists are trained in the specialized area of eating disorders. Your work in other areas of recovery, including support groups and dialectical behavior therapies, will be enhanced and strengthened by our outpatient services. We also offer outpatient groups to help you connect with others and receive support via a shared experience, but please note that these groups do not replace a higher care level.
Intensive Outpatient Program For Treatment of Anorexia and Bulimia
The Evening Intensive Outpatient Program is for those who need more care than outpatient therapy can provide. You’ll be encouraged to continue engaging in your real-life responsibilities while you incorporate the skills you are learning in program. This program offers an opportunity for recovery of your body and mind by helping you detach from your old behavior patterns, manage emotions and fears, and make positive changes in your daily life.
Partial Hospitalization Program For Treatment of Eating Disorders
Partial hospitalization is the highest level of care for the treatment for anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders. The structured, intensified program is designed to treat complex eating disorders. In program, you will learn recovery skills that can help you recognize triggers, develop coping tools and manage your daily life. Our team of board-certified psychiatrists, physicians, primary clinicians, family therapists and registered dietitians will work together to create a plan that meets your needs. This program is a combination approach that includes medical evaluations and individual, family, nutritional and group therapies.
After you've completed the partial hospitalization program for treatment of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or other eating disorder, you'll transition to an intensive outpatient program. Here, you'll continue to receive support and work with your team, while you start spending time away from EDC, and plan for a better future.
Housing Model: A Unique Treatment Approach
In Denver, our "Connections House" provides housing for up to 13 female patients in a tranquil, spacious setting that is off-site from the main treatment center. Transportation between the center and the Connections House is provided free of cost. Here, you can practice the skills you are learning in the partial hospitalization program while continuing to receive support from our staff.
Our Connections House reinforces our commitment to a fully-supportive recovery setting. You can rest assured there will always be a supportive person available if you need one. Our Master's level and Master's-in-training level counselors are available throughout the evening and overnight, and they remain in contact with our treatment staff and on-call doctors as needed.
