Bulimia Nervosa Treatment


Women and teens with bulimia consume large amounts of food and then purge. Purging may involve vomiting, diuretics, laxatives, or over-exercising. Women and teens, both male and female, may visit the restroom immediately following or during meals and often follow strict diets. They often become increasingly secretive and exhibit mood swings and oppositional behavior. Bulimia affects both the mind and body and many of those with bulimia are also suffering from other conditions including major depression.

Bulimia is one of the most common eating disorders and people with bulimia use the manipulation of food to distract themselves from the problems in their life or as a way to soothe themselves. Food may give them a feeling of comfort while eating too much may make them feel out of control. After they eat, they may feel shame or guilt and be afraid of gaining weight. These feelings can lead to purging behavior. Getting help for bulimia is important; without treatment, the cycle of bulimia can lead to long-term health problems.

At Center for Discovery, our bulimia treatment program focuses on providing the intensive therapeutic atmosphere needed to affect both emotional and behavioral growth. Understanding that the underlying factors are different for every woman and teen with an eating disorder is important. Center for Discovery combines the traditional approaches and the creative, personalized interventions that provide cutting edge treatment for teens and women with bulimia. Residential treatment offers a safe, secure place for those with bulimia to explore the issues that contributed to the development of their eating disorder.

At Center for Discovery, our residential treatment programs are committed to providing treatment for teens, both male and female, and women with bulimia. Our eating disorder treatment locations are home-like and set in residential neighborhoods, with separate facilities for teens and adult women, providing familiar surroundings to ease the transition between home and residential treatment. At Center for Discovery, we provide the supportive atmosphere to help residents address the issues underlying their bulimia.
