Eating Disorder Assessment and Treatment
Eating disorders often accompany mental health disorders, including substance use disorders. At Turnbridge, we screen and assess for eating disorders both before and during a client’s residency. Clients who meet medical criteria are provided a customized eating disorder treatment plan that may include a combination of therapeutic meals, individual and group therapy, one-on-one support from a dietition/nutritionist, enhanced behavioral monitoring, and frequent measurement of vitals.
Eating disorder treatment at Turnbridge helps clients normalize their eating patterns by developing a balanced and sustainable relationship with food free from negative or distorted thoughts about self, listening to and trusting the body’s internal cues to determine hunger and fullness, and learning an approach to eating as a means to meet the body’s daily nutritional needs.
