Disordered Eating

Eating Healthy is Part of Healthy Living

Food is a necessary part of life and can become an enemy to some people causing serious health risks.  When food becomes an addiction and it controls our behaviors, we have formed an unhealthy relationship with it and our life has become unmanageable.  Many people struggle with food addiction and this can mean consuming too much or too little food.  It can also include expelling food after consumption.  

Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia are two diagnoses specific to disordered eating.  There is also “NOS” or not otherwise specified and Food Addiction. 

My Interventionist works with all 4 types of disordered eating and will find the best clinical fit in treatment center for your loved one.  Disordered eating can be very difficult to treat because abstinence is not an option, so we must learn to properly manage our intake.  There are some excellent treatment programs to treat food eating disorders and the My Interventionist one year plan provides your recovery team with a chance to build a solid foundation on your new recovery path. 

All recovery teams will have weekly check ins for a minimum of one year. Individual sessions will be scheduled as necessary.  Weekly peer support group participation is encouraged for all members of the recovery team.  Loved ones become addicted to the behaviors surrounding their disordered eating and they need the support of both professionals and loved ones to make the lifesaving changes.
