Bulimia Nervosa Treatment


The symptoms and behaviors of bulimia are similar in many cases, however the underlying issues that contribute to the development of bulimia are very specific to each person and can vary greatly between individuals. Understanding that each person with bulimia has their own unique set of contributing factors is critical. Bulimia is one of the most common eating disorders and can affect both males and females. Bulimia often begins as a way to self-soothe or distract from the problems in everyday life. Individuals with bulimia often find that food gives them a feeling of comfort, but eating too much may make them feel out of control. After eating, they may feel guilty and ashamed, or be afraid of gaining weight, which can lead to purging behavior. Individuals with bulimia eat large amounts of food in a short period of time and then purge by vomiting, exercising, using laxatives or diuretics, or other purging behaviors. Bulimics often follow strict diets and may visit the restroom during or after meals to purge. Many of those suffering with bulimia are also suffering from other conditions such as major depression. If your loved one is dealing with bulimia, getting help is important. Without proper treatment, the cycle of bulimia can lead to serious, long-term health problems.

At Center for Discovery San Diego, our residential eating disorder treatment programs are specifically designed to provide the intensive, therapeutic environment to affect emotional and behavioral growth for those dealing with bulimia and other disordered eating and their families. Our residential treatment programs are dedicated to helping our clients address their situation and go on to long term recovery and healthy, happy lives. Effective treatment for bulimia requires an array of resources to treat successfully. Our program combines traditional inpatient approaches with creative, personalized interventions to treat each of our residents with an individualized treatment plan. Through this combination, we have achieved a long legacy of successful treatment of eating disorders, and we remain at the forefront of therapeutic eating disorder treatment.

This environment helps residents find a comfortable place to deal with the issues contributing to their eating disorder without many of the distractions of life.
