Eating Disorders are treatable.
Do you feel like you’re the only person who thinks about eating all the time? Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia are fairly well know, however people suffering from disorders such as binge eating are only recently getting their fair share of acknowledgment and help. Binge Eating, like any other addiction, can begin to tear apart your family, friendships, work and home life.
Binge Eating is more than just an overindulgence. You may consume more calories in one or two hours than you would normally consume in an entire day.
Our counseling center uses a neuropsychology approach to those suffering from Eating Disorders as well as family therapy. We also highly encourage having a strong support system, whether that is Overeaters Anonymous, your friends and family or both.
