Adult Eating & Feeding Disorders
Most eating disorders can be treated effectively in an outpatient setting when evidence-based interventions are utilized and a multidisciplinary team is available. Most adult patients in our Eating and Feeding Disorder Track are seen by a psychologist, registered dietitian, and psychiatrist or physician assistant.
Disorders in this track include:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
- Purging Disorder
- Unspecified/Other Specified Eating Disorders
- Night Eating Syndrome
- Body Image Distress.
Symptoms are targeted with evidence-based treatments described below.
Our focus is most often to move patients away from rule-based eating (e.g., meal plans, diets, etc.) and instead help them to develop skills in Intuitive Eating. Many of our patients are discharging from "higher level of care" facilities, although most are seeking treatment for the first time.
A typical course of treatment is identified in the figure to the right.
Our team of psychologists, registered dietitians, and psychiatrists provide an ideal treatment team for eating and feeding disorders treatment.
