TYPES OF EATING DISORDERS TREATED AT OLIVER-PYATT CENTERS

OUR CONTINUUM OF CARE encompasses treatment plans for virtual every type of eating and exercise disorder. Our experienced medical, clinical, and nutrition staff are trained in treating co-occurring disorders. Treatment for these disorders is available at every level of care, including residential and day treatment. Among the conditions we treat are:

  • Binge Eating Disorder – Despite being the most common eating disorder, binge eating disorder is still largely misunderstood. Often thought of as mere “overeating”, it is a complex disorder where an individual eats unusually large amounts of food in a short period, usually accompanied by feelings of guilt and a loss of control. Binge eating disorder recovery includes therapy, nutrional education, and mindfulness exercises.
  • Anorexia Nervosa – Anorexia nervosa is a complex eating disorder characterized by body image distortions resulting in food intake restriction and weight loss. It ranks among the most dangerous mental health conditions; in some cases medical treatment is required before therapy begins in earnest. Individuals in anorexia nervosa recovery often benefit from CBT, DBT and exposure therapy in addition to nutritional education and meal planning.
  • Bulimia Nervosa – This disorder is characterized by repeated binge eating episodes or periods of overeating followed by purging to counteract the calories taken in. The methods of purging can vary, but usually consist of fasting, laxative or diuretic abuse, and most commonly, self-induced vomiting. Bulimia nervosa treatment involves techniques designed to address self-image, increase mindfulness, and re-establish the individual’s relationship with intuitive eating.
  • OSFED – Short for Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder, OSFED consists of disordered eating behaviors that may not quality for a full diagnosis of more well-defined eating disorders like anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. Despite this, OSFED can have severe effects on a person’s physical ad mental well-being, and can required specialized eating disorder treatment.
  • ARFID – Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder is a form of eating disorder than can cause excessive weight loss and interfere with a person’s psychosocial functioning, especially during mealtimes. People with ARFID develop a fear of certain foods or food types and avoid them completely, sometimes affecting the individual’s health. Unlike many other eating disorders, ARFID is not triggered by desire to lose weight or fear of gaining weight, although it can cause weight loss. ARFID treatment, however, includes many similar behavioral modification methods used in treating other disorders.

Co-Occurring Disorders and Eating Disorder Recovery

EATING DISORDER RECOVERY doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It’s common for people struggling with an eating disorder to also present another form or forms of mental health disorder. Effective eating disorder treatment plans must address these co-occurring disorders (sometimes known as a dual diagnosis) to promote healing. Co-occurring disorders we treat at Oliver-Pyatt Centers include:

  • Depression
  • Substance Use Disorder
  • Anxiety disorders including general anxiety, social anxiety, and panic disorders
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Trauma and PTSD
