Eating disorders are debilitating. If you have an eating disorder and another co-occurring issue (substance use disorder, anxiety disorder or mood disorder), you not only tend to have more severe symptoms, you can also be more resistant to treatment. But no matter how many diagnoses you have, recovery is always possible.

Like so many people with Binge Eating Disorder, I just didn’t feel “sick enough” for treatment. What I didn’t realize before recovery was that I was existing in this world – but not really living. In Binge Eating Disorder treatment, patients recover from their eating disorder and rediscover the things, places, ideals, and beliefs that they value – as well as their connection to each other and to other people.
