Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious health conditions that are both physically and emotionally destructive. Evidence has shown that the most effective and long-lasting form of treatment for an eating disorder is psychotherapy coupled with careful attention to the medical and nutritional needs of the individual. The Camden Center therapists work closely with each patient to help gain an understanding of the emotional reasons behind the disordered eating and help implement cognitive and behavioral techniques that aid each person in their recovery. We also ensure that each patient is properly connected to the appropriate medical and nutritional staff to help them deal with the physical consequences of his/her specific eating disorder. It is important for individuals struggling with an eating disorder to work with a treatment team that they trust to help coordinate and oversee their care. At the Camden Center, our staff of trained professionals work hard to ensure that each patient feels cared for, listened to and understood.
