Substance Abuse and Eating Disorders Treatment in Miami

Common eating disorders like anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are severe mental health conditions that can affect people of all ages, genders, sexes and cultural backgrounds. They are so serious in fact that they lead all other mental health disorders in suicide attempts and mortality rates. Additionally, the development of eating disorders is often linked with other co-occurring mental health disorders like substance abuse. Because this combination can be deadly without proper treatment, those with co-occurring conditions like substance abuse and eating disorders should seek out specialized treatment.

For example, the combination of alcoholism and eating disorders can be deadly if left untreated. Often, the stresses that each condition puts on the cardiopulmonary and liver functions are exacerbated by the presence of severe dehydration, malnutrition and other health complications related to eating disorder development. For those who have been diagnosed with co-occurring conditions like bulimia nervosa and alcohol abuse, comprehensive residential treatment is available at Oliver-Pyatt Centers.

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and are interested in learning more about anorexia nervosa treatment in Miami, please give us a call today at (866) 511-4325 to speak with one of our compassionate admission specialists.

Residential Eating Disorder and Substance Abuse Treatment in Miami, FL

People with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder often experience feelings of anxiety, depression and substance abuse problems in addition to their eating disorder. When serious mental health conditions like substance abuse and depression are combined with an eating disorder, individuals have a much higher risk of developing long-term health consequences.

Substance abuse combined with eating disorders has been observed at our eating disorder rehab in Malibu and elsewhere as falling into two broad categories:

Appetite Suppressants / Metabolism Boosters

Many dangerous stimulants such as amphetamines, meth, and cocaine can work to reduce hunger.

People with anorexia nervosa may compulsively restrict their caloric intake and rely on these kinds of drugs to lessen their cravings to eat.

These types of drugs can also worsen common symptoms of eating disorders like tooth decay, hair loss, heart problems, and lung issues.

Alcohol and Other De-stressors

Many common eating disorder behaviors have also shown to provide a type “coping mechanism” for anxiety, low self-esteem, and depression.

The release of serotonin and dopamine in the brain can also result in compulsive eating disorder behaviors. Additionally, drug abuse can trigger the same receptors in the brain and cause individuals to become “addicted” to their eating disorder.
