Depression, anxiety and emotional dysregulation (an emotional response that is poorly modulated) not only occur commonly alongside an eating disorder, but also persist after eating disorder recovery.
Co-occurring mood, anxiety and/or substance abuse issues must be thoroughly explored while you are in treatment so you can truly understand your diagnosis and develop the skills to manage mood, anxiety and/or substance abuse issues in addition to eating disorder recovery skills. At ERC, we offer specialized tracks to address these common co-occurring conditions.
For our patients who have a primary diagnosis of a mood or anxiety disorder, they will be referred to a community partner specializing in mood and anxiety disorder treatment or to one of our ERC Insight facilities (locations include Chicago, IL, Seattle, WA, Austin TX and The Woodlands, TX) that offers Residential, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs thoughtfully designed to treat mood and anxiety disorders and foster lasting recovery.
