Common Eating Disorders Treated at Ocean Recovery

Today’s diet culture is full of misconceptions and misunderstandings about what it means to have a healthy relationship with eating. It is common to normalize eating disorders as a lifestyle or a way to stay thin and attractive, when in actuality these are serious disorders in need of treatment. Eating disorders run deeper than just food. They are mental health conditions that can be dangerous to overall health and even have life-threatening consequences. Some of the common disorders we treat at Ocean Recovery include:

Anorexia (Anorexia nervosa)

Anorexia nervosa is characterized by a low body weight, a fear of gaining weight, and body dysmorphia (or a distorted perception of body shape and weight). Individuals with anorexia may go to extreme measures to prevent gaining weight. Symptoms can include extreme weight loss, fatigue, dizziness, thinning hair, irregular menstruation, low blood pressure, and dehydration. Anorexia can occur alongside anxiety disorders and other mental health and substance use issues.

Bulimia (Bulimia nervosa)

Another common eating disorder, Bulimia nervosa, also involves a fear of gaining weight and an inaccurate perception of body shape and size. Those with bulimia often alternate between “binge” periods (in which they over-consume food) and “purge” periods (in which they self-induce vomiting, fast, or use other extreme weight loss tactics). Symptoms include eating large quantities of food in one sitting, forcing vomiting or exercise after binge eating, using laxatives or enemas when they’re not needed, and being preoccupied about weight or body shape.

Binge Eating Disorder

Individuals with binge eating disorder feel a compulsion to overeat, but unlike those with bulimia nervosa, do not typically try to compensate with extreme calorie restriction or weight loss measures. Symptoms of binge eating disorder include feeling like eating behavior is out of control, eating rapidly until uncomfortably full, eating when not hungry, and feeling embarrassed or depressed about eating habits.

If you or a loved one have symptoms of anorexia nervosa, binge eating disorder or another disordered eating pattern, one of our team members can provide more information about our services and treatment options.

Cost should never be a barrier to seeking addiction treatment. Our Orange County drug rehab center accepts most major health insurance plans, which makes treatment more accessible.
