Compulsive overeating, otherwise known as binge eating, can cause havoc to a person’s emotional and physical well-being. It can even be life-threatening. If a person eats excessively more than once a week for more than three months, then they may be experiencing a serious eating disorder.
The good news is that with the right kind of help, you can recover from a binge eating disorder.
The eating disorder treatment professionals at Brookhaven Hospital will not only help you understand the physiological, psychological and social components of your illness, they will provide you with all the tools you will need to fully recover from binge eating.
Our binge eating clients first receive an individualized treatment plan that’s optimized to deliver a complete, lasting recovery. Next, we help you engage your binge eating at a behavioral level in order to stop the negative eating habits. Along the path of your recovery, your treatment team will look for psychological aspects that may be connected to your binge eating behaviors.
Binge eating commonly co-occurs with other mental problems such as:
While weight loss is a common goal among binge eating patients, we believe there are more effective strategies to attain a healthy weight—and those strategies involve focusing on the actual eating habits first, and addressing any underlying issues. Once those foundational components of the disorder are addressed, weight loss commonly follows as the body’s natural response.
Our goal is to help you establish normal eating habits, achieve physical and emotional stability, control your weight, and to help you avoid any future maladaptive eating habits.
At Brookhaven Hospital, we understand the complex nature of treating a binge eating disorder, and we have the training, skills, and programs to make a real difference. We help individuals through a comprehensive analysis of their current physical and mental health, and a look at the habits and environmental challenges they face.
