An addiction is a disorder characterized by the compulsive use of a rewarding substance or activity despite experiencing adverse consequences. It is a complex condition with biological, psychological, and social components, considered a brain disease. Its development in an individual is believed to be influenced by genetics and environment (nature and nurture). In the past, addiction was considered to encompass substance abuse primarily. Still, over the years, the definition has been expanded to include activities like gambling, internet use, gaming, shopping, and other non-substance-related behaviors. With effective treatment like that offered at Virtue Recovery Center, people with addictions can go on to live happy, healthy, and productive lives free from the negative consequences of addiction.

TYPES OF EATING DISORDERS

ANOREXIA NERVOSA

According to the DSM-5, there are three primary symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa (AN), which are described below:

Avoidant / Restrictive food intake disorder

According to the DSM-5, the following are symptoms of Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, or ARFID:

  1. An eating of feeding disturbance (e.g., apparent lack of interest in eating or food; avoidance based on the sensory characteristics of food; concern about aversive consequences of eating) as manifested by persistent failure to meet appropriate nutritional and/or energy needs associated with one (or more) of the following:

RUMINATION DISORDER

According to the DSM-5, the following are the criteria for Rumination Disorder:

  1. Repeated regurgitation of food over a period of at least one month. Regurgitated food may be re-chewed, re-swallowed, or spit out.

In other words, individuals that struggle with Rumination Disorder will begin the digestive process of chewing their food. There are several presentations of Rumination Disorder, including spitting out food after chewing or vomiting within the mouth and then swallowing the food back down.

OTHER SPECIFIED FEEDING OR EATING DISORDER

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

When an individual finally seeks professional help for an eating disorder, it is often in the form of individual counseling with a generalized therapist. These professionals can offer the individual suffering and their family members a greater understanding of the nature of their disease. However, individual counseling on an outpatient one-on-one basis alone is not the answer. Eating disorders are complex bio-psycho-social diseases that require a great degree of expertise and experience to treat successfully. Virtue Recovery Center for Eating Disorders in Arizona is here to help.

RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT

This is the beauty of residential care. Many facilities throughout the United States offer eating disorder treatment for those suffering from this problem. Some offer a ranch-style setting. Others are simply a spacious homelike environment. Some resemble an institution-like setting, but the more the environment resembles “normal” life, the less the patient will resist rehabilitation. The staff at Virtue Recovery is predictable and welcoming and feels like a healing family member with their supportive care and knowledge about navigating the difficulties of early recovery. Many staff have walked a similar path and can be a comfort during a difficult time of surrender.

Inpatient Eating Disorders Recovery Treatment

Inpatient Eating Disorders Recovery Treatment

Inpatient eating disorders recovery treatment is a comprehensive, structured program that provides 24-hour care and support for individuals struggling with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge eating disorder. This type of treatment typically includes medical supervision, individual and group therapy, nutritional counseling, meal planning, family involvement, and various therapeutic activities. The goal of inpatient treatment is to stabilize the patient's physical and mental health, address underlying issues related to the eating disorder, and provide tools for long-term recovery.

Outpatient Eating Disorders Recovery Treatment

Outpatient Eating Disorders Recovery Treatment

Outpatient eating disorders recovery treatment is a flexible and less intensive program that allows individuals to receive support and therapy while living at home and maintaining daily responsibilities, such as work or school. This type of treatment typically includes regular individual and group therapy sessions, nutritional counseling, and medical monitoring. The goal of outpatient treatment is to help patients develop healthy coping mechanisms, improve their relationship with food, and address underlying issues related to the eating disorder, all while allowing them to maintain a sense of normalcy in their daily lives.

FAMILY STYLE

Let’s talk about the kind of therapy an individual would receive once accepted into a facility. Most facilities require that the patients living at the “home” live together “family style.” They share rooms, take their meals together, have social time, and even participate in outside events. All of this is intended to begin to break through the isolation barrier that those with this disorder tend to develop and often cling to with great determination. One of the best aspects of residential care that leads to rehabilitation is the group atmosphere. Groups are formed around everything from simply talking about the issues surrounding this to processing the pain, fear, and anger that precipitates an eating disorder.

Residential Treatment Center program

As part of a residential program, clients can access on-site personnel 24 hours a day. A medical doctor meets with each client individually weekly or as needed. Some therapists meet both individually and with larger groups for discussion. During the recovery process, family members are invited to join them for several therapy sessions with permission from the client. This is a crucial part of rehabilitation. There is no such thing as an “eating-disordered individual.” 

The Best Step Toward Recovery

While time and cost are significant factors that keep a person or family from seeking help at a residential facility, it is truly the best step toward recovery. Nobody wants anybody else digging through their family’s best-kept secrets (usually, some issues go back, sometimes, generations), but recovery for the individual can often mean recovery for a family. Seeking professional help in a residential setting has huge dividends for all involved.
