Eating Recovery Center offers eating disorder treatment programs for people with overweight bodies. Patients in these programs are overweight or obese and also struggle with bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating, night eating, emotional eating and/or stress eating. These programs offer intensive multidisciplinary treatment for adults, including medical, psychiatric, behavioral and nutritional care. It is not an obesity treatment program or a weight management program. Unlike traditional weight loss programs, we recognize that both behavioral and biological factors contribute to being overweight, and that many overweight or obese individuals have a co-occurring eating disorder. This program offers a comprehensive treatment solution to normalize eating patterns, stabilize medical comorbidities, control weight and improve quality of life issues.

Karen Schneller, clinical manager of the Eating Recovery Center in San Francisco, said a spike in extreme eating habits in teenagers and college students has the potential to develop into eating disorders. This is a phenomenon that happens consistently throughout the country. Anxiety and stress about body image can also manifest into an eating disorder.

Labels and codes do not tell you of my strength, my compassionate nature, and the creativity that makes me whole. Labels don't tell you of the courage of a young woman who left Australia on a one-way ticket to travel the world, determined to live and make her parents proud despite her ailments. Nor do they tell you about a successful TV actor, business owner, loving mother, and wife. They also leave out the crappy parts that I deal with on a daily basis and how, after a hard day, I will put my head on the pillow and feel like a courageous, strong warrior. From Robyn Cruze, National Recovery Advocate and online community manager for Eating Recovery Center.
