Years of experience has taught the EDCare team that judging or policing behaviors are not the best way to address eating disorders. Instead, we utilize an approach that alleviates negative emotions and promotes empathy and listening. With these principles at the core of our programs, we guide you towards making long-term changes in your eating behavior.
An Environment that Encourages Change
Often, those who have eating disorders refuse to talk about their experience. We want you to feel safe about sharing your experiences and emotions about food, so we know how we can assist you in your recovery.
Please know that you’re not alone. Our team is here to help you navigate bulimia nervosa, understand your experiences, and cope with your feelings. We will provide you with the support you need to be able to regain your confidence in developing a healthy disposition toward food and eating.
Every person heals at their own pace. We begin small by creating activities such as eating out or grocery shopping, to gently prepare you for the real-world settings.
Building Your Support System
Family and friends are the strongest components of a bulimic person’s support system. We engage your support system and integrate them into the program through family therapy session and multi-family groups. For patients whose families live outside the area, we conduct conferences over the phone to keep them updated on their loved one’s progress.
Going Down the Path to Long-Term Recovery
It’s not uncommon to feel apprehensive about continuing treatment. But when you feel like you’re not making any progress it’s important to remember the outcome. Receiving treatment is your first step to regaining control of your life story. By continuing treatment, you’re turning a new leaf and making your way towards living a healthier life – the kind of life you’ll love.
