Help and hope to overcome eating disorders.
About Eating Disorders
Food is meant to nourish and support your body. If the way you think about food has overpowered your life, hope for recovery may seem distant or even impossible. When you or a loved one struggles with an eating disorder, Ascension care teams can help support your journey toward physical, mental and emotional well-being.
You are more than your eating disorder. You’re an individual who needs someone to listen and understand what you’re going through. Ascension care teams are here for you.
Personalized support for eating disorders
We help you address the specific symptoms of eating disorders — like an obsessive preoccupation with food, a compulsion to exercise, extreme calorie restriction and a disoriented body perception — with the goal of helping you develop positive relationships with food. Ascension’s experienced care teams offer support for the full range of eating disorders, including:
- Anorexia nervosa.
- Food addictions.
- Binge eating disorder.
Compassionate care with you at the center
Ascension’s caring specialists — including registered dietitians, doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists — support you through every stage of recovery. We will listen to understand your needs and create a personalized recovery plan for your body, mind and spirit.
Inpatient as well as intensive outpatient programs are available in some locations, providing guidance about healthy weight, exercise and meal planning for long-term health. We understand that healthy eating involves both physical and emotional growth, so we’ll be with you at every step of your healing path.
