Eating disorder recovery is a long-term process, not a quick fix.
Eating disorder recovery is a long-term process, not a quick fix. Anorexia, bulimia and compulsive overeating are complicated and have a high rate of relapse. For lasting recovery, it is important to find a treatment solution that works for you.
The goal of treatment is to address any medical or nutritional needs, promote a healthy relationship with food, and teach constructive ways to cope with life and its challenges. Often, a combination of therapy, nutritional counseling and group support works best. In some cases, residential treatment or hospitalization may be necessary. To be truly effective, it is important that any treatment addresses the physical, psychological and spiritual components of the disease. Women will soon truly regain their grace in recovery.
There are many eating disorder treatment options. The right approach depends on an individual’s specific symptoms, issues and strengths, as well as the severity of the disorder. What may work for one person may not quite fit another, so feel free to try different solutions until you find what speaks most true to you. The Victorian staff will be happy to answer your questions about various treatment processes and the living arrangements. Some examples of the types of treatment offered at the Victorian:
- In-Patient Treatment
- Out-Patient Treatment
- One on One Therapy
- Group Support Meetings and Group Therapy
- Holistic & Alternative Healing (including Neurofeedback)
Remember, the longer an eating disorder remains undiagnosed and untreated, the more difficult it is to overcome and the more harmful it becomes on one’s body. Please consider seeking professional help immediately if you or someone you love is at risk.
