About Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious illnesses that make food, the body's source of energy, seem like the enemy. The symptoms of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia, and binge eating disorder vary, but can include obsessive preoccupation with food, a compulsion to exercise, extreme calorie restriction and a distorted body perception.

At Ascension, our connected team of specialists includes registered dietitians, physicians, psychiatrists and psychologists. They work closely with you and one another to create the right recovery plan for your needs and provide guidance at every step to help you develop a healthier lifestyle.

Our team works together to ensure that your recovery plan cares for your full well-being, treating your physical symptoms while helping you address the psychological ones. Inpatient as well as intensive outpatient programs are available, providing education about healthy weight, exercise and meal planning for long-term health.
