Psychiatric Treatment for Eating Disorders in Miami, FL

Eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are complex mental health disorders that can affect people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. Because of the severity of these mental health conditions, individuals who are diagnosed with an eating disorder often experience other co-occurring mental health conditions as well. This combination can put a large amount of physical and psychological stress put on the body, often becoming exacerbated by the side effects of malnutrition, severe dehydration, and other medical complications.

For those interested in comprehensive residential psychiatric treatment, the team at Oliver-Pyatt understands the psychiatric and behavioral complexities of eating disorders — providing care in a safe and comfortable setting. Additionally, our clients can benefit from access to both medical and psychiatric care, the highest level of eating disorder care available outside of a hospital setting.

Psychiatric Assessment for Eating Disorders in Miami

Research shows that anorexia nervosa is the most lethal mental disorder — with those who have this type of eating disorder experiencing an increased death risk of 6 times that of their peers. Early intervention often plays a crucial role in long-term eating disorder recovery. These facts make understanding some common warning signs of eating disorders important for parents and loved ones. It may be time to consider psychotherapy sessions for eating disorders if loved ones notice any of the flowing symptoms:

Common Physical Symptoms

Loved ones may initially see great fluctuations in an individual’s overall body weight and size. These fluctuations can go up and down and may be accompanied by other physical changes such as muscle weakness, dry skin and hair, cavities, bloating and more.

Severe dehydration is very common in cases of anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. If left untreated, dehydration can result in electrolyte imbalances that affect every major organ system in the body. Individuals with electrolyte imbalances have an increased risk of experiencing irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, and even heart failure.

Infrequent periods or the absence of menstrual periods is also prevalent in women with eating disorders. While a typical cycle can return after recovery, many women may experience long-term fertility issues as a result of these irregularities.

Co-Occurring Psychiatric Symptoms

The development of specific food rituals is often a good indication that someone is experiencing disordered eating behaviors. Family members may notice that their loved one chooses to eat their foods in a particular order, they do not like their food to touch, they excessively chew each bite of food, or they refuse to eat specific foods types altogether.

Obsessive thoughts surrounding food, dieting, calories, body weight, body shape, exercise, and fat grams are also common. Individuals may attempt several fad diets or begin an extreme exercise routine that they commit to no matter their health, social commitments or inclement weather.

Individuals may withdraw from social activities and school/work commitments that one previously enjoyed. They may express concerns about eating around others and start to eat meals alone or hide/hoard food.
