Eating Disorders Information and Treatment

Eating disorders can take a heavy toll on a person’s health. Binge eating can lead to a wide variety of health problems, such as high cholesterol, obesity, and poor heart health. The underlying reasons that people binge eat, however, are usually psychological. Therefore, an effective binge eating treatment plan needs to address mental health as well as physical health. The Control Center provides personalized plans to address each person’s unique needs.

Addressing Underlying Issues

 Binge eating is usually the result of a mental health disorder that has not received proper attention. Therefore, failing to address the mental health aspects of binge eating makes it nearly impossible for binge eating treatment to work. The Control Center uses a number of mental health services to promote long-term health:

  • Neuropsychological Assessment to help diagnose any underlying mental health issues
  • Specialty Psychotherapy that addresses mental health issues such as low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety
  • Spiritual Therapy that uses meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, and creative visualization to help individuals foster a balanced approach to life

 The Control Center uses several services to help individuals stop binge eating so that they can integrate healthier dietary and lifestyle choices. The professionals at The Control Center work carefully with each patient so that he or she may develop a better understanding of:

  • Mental health issues that can influence eating behaviors
  • Addiction backgrounds and difficulties with self-control
  • How family history can influence eating and exercise habits
  • Ways that an individual’s medical history should influence lifestyle choices
  • The positive and negative aspects of his or her nutritional history
