  Bulimia Treatment in Florida
HALO AT THE COVE CENTER FOR RECOVERY

Anorexia, Bulimia, and Overeating are eating disorders. An eating disorder is an addiction. Eating Disorders are a result of a behavior known as “self-medicating” behavior. Eating disorders are serious health conditions that can be both physically and emotionally destructive. Professional help is always recommended. If not identified or treated in their early stages, eating disorders can become chronic, debilitating, and even life-threatening. Characteristics of a person struggling with an eating disorder may include: low self esteem, depression, feelings of loss of control, feelings of worthlessness, identity issues, family communication problems and difficulty coping with emotions. Anorexia is easier to visually recognize and more commonly characterized by extreme weight loss or extreme underweight physical appearance. For the individual struggling with an eating disorder, personal and social relationships are neglected, as well as work and other life experiences. The anorexic or bulimic person does not recognize the addiction and is often confronted by loved ones or a physician, before directing attention to the behavior.

EATING DISORDER TREATMENT - EATING DISORDER HELP
An Eating Disorder is an addiction. It begins as a “self-medicating” behavior, surrounding weight loss and food issues. It progresses to an obsession and an addiction. Eating Disorders are treatment worthy, much the same as drug addiction. Eating Disorders include behavior demonstrated in a Cycle of Addiction. The root causes of drug and alcohol addiction are the same or similar to eating disorders. Instead of using drugs and alcohol to self-medicate, an Anorexic or Bulimic uses starvation and excessive exercise to self medicate, in an effort to resolve inner-personal challenges, struggles, or conflicts. Eating disorders may also be co-occurring with drug or alcohol addiction or a result or consequence of drug or alcohol addiction.

The most effective and long-lasting treatment for eating disorders begins with an appropriate assessment of the individual. If hospitalization is required, as in acute cases, individuals and their family and/or friends are strongly encouraged to seek immediate direction of a physician. The physician may require the individual enter a hospital for stabilization.

Once stabilization has occurred an addiction treatment program is recommended. Entrance into an addiction treatment center is recommended, due to the complexity of root causes for eating disorders and the addictive nature of an eating disorder. The treatment center should be one that focuses on all aspects of eating disorders, psychotherapy, recovery, and aftercare.

The weekend schedule changes depending on scheduled family sessions and activities.

CAUSES OF EATING DISORDERS:
There are as many causes of eating disorders as there are differing personalities, life histories and experiences, medical challenges, personal challenges, etc. However, eating disorders may begin with preoccupations with food and weight, but they are most often about much more than food. An eating disorder is a “self-medicating” behavior, manifested through poor body image and weight concerns.

ANOREXIA AND BULEMIA HEALTH CONCERNS:
Eating disorders are real, complex, and devastating conditions that can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships.

Anorexia and Bulimia can increase dental problems, as a result of poor nutrition. Bulimia or the purging aspect of an eating disorder, causes an increase of acid on the gums and teeth, which can lead to increased dental problems.

Laxative abuse is serious and dangerous - often resulting in a variety of health complications and sometimes causing life-threatening risks.
