Another important area to address is that your treatment team will seek to understand any emotional or psychological issues that may be contributing to your disordered eating behavior.

In addition to addressing behavioral and psychological contributors to the illness, it is important to identify and treat any co-occurring illnesses you may have. Many people who struggle with binge eating have one or more concerns aside from the eating disorder, including:

Through our comprehensive binge eating disorder treatment program, we seek to normalize eating patterns, stabilize medical comorbidities and improve quality of life issues. 

This is our approach to stopping binge eating

Higher-weight individuals with binge eating disorder often tell us that they want to admit to a program with a clear “weight-loss strategy;” they say they are looking for programs that have weight loss as a goal.

Our internationally-recognized binge eating disorder treatment experts believe that the more effective way to help patients struggling with BED is by focusing first on remedying the disordered eating, finding solutions to the overeating, and addressing any underlying issues. Through this approach, weight loss may occur.
