Many of our patients have suffered significant trauma in their lives. Certain types of trauma put you at high risk for eating disorders (especially bulimia), particularly if you have experienced sexual abuse, domestic violence, or have developed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The eating disorder is often a way for people to try to manage their feelings about the trauma they have gone through. This is why it’s important for our treatment team to help you understand that trauma, and how it relates to the eating disorder.
Our unique approach, CAMSA®, helps you regain your health through Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, a Sense of Self, and Action – the foundations of true empowerment. Using this approach, the Eating Disorder Trauma Track offers a safe and supportive environment where you can develop healthier coping skills, and get on the path to recovery from both past trauma and your eating disorder.
