People who struggle with eating disorders usually are obsessed with the food they eat or don’t eat, their weight and their body image. Eating disorders are often life-threatening, especially if they aren’t treated or responded to appropriately. The sooner someone gets eating disorder treatment, the better chances they will have at recovering fully.
The common eating disorders include binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa. Some other eating disorders are rumination disorder, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, pica, and some other specified eating or feeding disorders.
If you struggle with any type of eating disorder, please reach out to us here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center in Chattanooga, TN. We have eating disorder treatment programs that can help.
Eating Disorders and Addiction
Did you know that many people struggle with eating disorders and addiction to drugs or alcohol? Some of the things you may want to know about this include:
- Around ⅓ of people in the United States that abuse drugs or alcohol also have an eating disorder
- Around ½ of the people in the United States with an eating disorder abuse illicit drugs or alcohol daily
Sometimes, eating disorders are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. When this happens, the person with the disorder continues to struggle. The longer they go without treatment, the worse the eating disorder and addiction can get.
If you are struggling with an eating disorder or an addiction or both, reach out to our team here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center. We can treat both of these conditions together. It is called co-occurring disorder treatment. Our psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, therapists and dieticians can help you daily throughout the treatment program.
