Treatment Methods

Anyone grappling with an eating disorder needs to receive treatment as soon as possible. While eating disorders might not always be perceived as such, they're certainly potentially deadly and carry severe health risks along with them. Treatment can take several forms, and there are many different options available in order to meet the needs of different patients.

Different Types of Treatment for Eating Disorders

Our treatment for pediatric feeding disorders focuses on improving clinical care for children with feeding disorders. Our treatment includes the following areas:

  • Establishing operations
  • Conditioned food aversions and preferences
  • Function-based assessment and treatment procedures
  • Training parents and caregivers and effectively generalizing treatments to natural environments

Most times a treatment for eating disorders will have to provide tools and education to the patient in question in order to empower them to cope with the problems that caused the disorder in the first place. Identifying function of  behavior is the first step to doing so, as well as an important component in preventing a relapse.

Medical and Behavioural Therapy

Medical treatment for eating disorders will focus on treating complications such as reflux, drops in blood pressure and constipation. Loss of bone density and stress fractures are seen in more advanced cases, which is why complete treatments always provide for screening of conditions that could crop up as a result of an eating disorder.

Behavioural treatments are often seen as the most important steps. While it takes a great deal of courage to commit to any changes required for recovery, this is an important first step to letting go of the dangerous behaviors that come with these disorders. Therapists can often identify causes of behavioural problems that are part of the underlying causes of patient problems.
