Eating Disorder Recovery

At Prevail Recovery Center, we believe that eating disorders are severe mental health conditions that demand sensitive, specialized care. Our experienced team dedicates itself to providing adequate and individualized treatment plans that address the symptoms and root causes of eating disorders, including the critical role of nutrition counseling as part of our comprehensive treatment approach. The correction of beliefs about eating disorders is part of the wholesome care at Prevail Recovery Center. Below is a comprehensive guide that will discuss the types of eating disorders, the importance of seeking treatment, and the comprehensive approach to nutrition therapy we take at Prevail Recovery Center to help people in recovery lead healthy, everyday lives.


Understanding Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are mental health conditions characterized by severe disturbances in eating behaviors and, to an extent, extreme preoccupation with weight or body shape. The most typical forms of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder.


Critical symptoms of  eating disorders include:

  • Long-standing disturbance of eating behavior that prevents adequate food intake, such as extreme and unhealthy reduction of food intake or severe overeating
  • Significant concern or extreme concern with body weight and body shape
  • Psychological and emotional issues expressed through food
  • Eating disorders can lead to severe physical, mental health, professional, and emotional consequences and require professional treatment to overcome effectively.

Prevail Recovery Center’s Treatment for Eating Disorders

  1. Complete Assessment: This is the first step into the treatment. Our multidisciplinary treatment team will evaluate clients’ needs through comprehensive medical, psychological, and nutritional assessments to ascertain the severity of the eating disorder and any comorbid disorder or medical complication.
  2. Personalized Treatment Plans: The assessment then forms the basis for the development of a personalized treatment plan that will address each individual’s specific needs. Such a residential treatment plan may include nutritional management, medical care, individual therapy, and group therapy.
  3. Nutritional Counseling: Nutritional counseling forms a big part of eating disorder treatment. Our registered dietitians work with clients to help them understand the role of food in maintaining health, developing and maintaining healthy eating habits through a balanced meal plan, maintaining healthy weight, and changing unhealthy eating behaviors. The treatment for anorexia nervosa emphasizes especially weight gain on how to restore and monitor weight, relieve fear of gaining fat, build goals for weight gain into a meal plan, and provide education to support weight restoration as part of treatment, along with psychotherapies.
  4. Psychotherapy: Prevail Recovery Center uses the various forms of psychotherapy to treat eating disorders. Examples include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which is a nutritional therapy effective in treating Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder, and Family-Based Therapy (FBT), which helps treat adolescents with Anorexia Nervosa.
  5. Group Therapy and Support Groups: Group therapy sessions help clients share experiences and support each other in what often proves to be an invaluable recovery experience. Common topics discussed in family therapy include body image, relationships, and healthy coping mechanisms.
  6. Medication Management: When necessary, medications may be prescribed as part of the treatment plan, mainly if there are co-occurring mental or physical health problems, such as anxiety or depression.
  7. Aftercare and Relapse Prevention: Recovery from an eating disorder is an ongoing process that does not end after an initial treatment. Our outpatient care center provides aftercare support and relapse prevention strategies to help clients maintain their recovery over the long term.
