Binge Eating Treatment
Binge eating disorder is more common than you may realize, affecting 3.5 percent of all women in the United States according to the National Eating Disorders Association. This condition can have a serious impact on your mental health and your physical health. Possible physical health consequences of binge eating disorder include high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, fatigue and joint pain.
If you're struggling with feelings of loss of control, stress, shame, guilt and physical effects due to binge eating disorder, we can offer you help and support so you can get your life back.
Binge Eating Disorder Symptoms
Binge eating disorders are characterized by repeated episodes of large-quantity food consumption. You may experience distress, guilt or shame after an episode, and you feel as though you have no control. Unlike those suffering from bulimia nervosa, people with binge eating disorder do not regularly use unhealthy compensatory measures to counteract the effects.
If you're struggling with binge eating disorder, you might be experiencing recurring episodes that involve the following:
- Eating fast, often to the point where you are uncomfortably full
- Eating a lot even when you’re not hungry
- Eating while you’re feeling as if you have no control
- Significant distress
- Guilt and/or depression
We Can Help You Change Your Life
Our specialized binge eating disorder help program aims to help you normalize your eating and get control over your life so you can focus on what really matters to you. Binge eating disorder treatments that are focused on this specific disorder, like our ten-week program, offer you the support and help you need to recover from this condition.
This program's goals are to stop binge eating episodes, improve weight and shape attitudes, derail weight gain, set healthy patterns for eating, establish goals outside of weight, discover and tune values, and treat associated psychiatric conditions. Our program also includes both group and individual psychotherapy, including cognitive, behavioral, and acceptance and commitment therapies, with medication used as necessary.
With our multifaceted approach to the treatment of binge eating disorder, you'll also be able to participate in art therapy and nutrition groups, which include cooking classes to help you foster new, healthier eating habits. We also offer group therapies, and while these are not meant to replace a higher care standard, we've found that our patients thrive when they're given the chance to connect with others going through the same experience in a supportive environment.
