Persons with eating disorders frequently have forgotten
what it is like to be able to eat normally-without intrusive and overwhelming
concerns about weight and food. The Eating Disorders Program addresses
psychological, medical & family problems associated with eating disorders.
Family involvement is essential in the treatment plan. The numerous medical
and nutritional complications of eating disorders are assessed and treated. Once
the patient is in a healthy nutritional state and the eating or activity
disorder symptoms are under control, the patient can use the care and support of
the treatment program to begin the psychological work necessary to find a new
direction and meaning for life.
