Deciding that you need treatment for binge eating disorder is a significant step toward improving your life. It’s also a courageous one. If you think that your mental and physical health are suffering from this hard-to-control disease, Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center is here to provide the treatment you need so that you can have a happier, healthier future.
The Benefits of Treatment for Binge Eating Disorder
If you’ve been struggling with binge eating disorder, you may feel unable to control your food intake, and that loss of control has likely spilled over to other aspects of your life. Continuing to live without getting binge eating disorder treatment can have negative consequences on your relationships with family and friends, your physical health, and your overall emotional well-being.
By choosing to receive treatment for binge eating disorder, you can start to make the positive changes that will put you on the right track toward better long-term health. You can learn coping skills that will help you understand portion control, ease anxiety around how food affects your mind and body, and develop a better overall relationship with food.
You will soon find that you are not alone on this journey. There are many women and girls who have had similar binge eating disorder struggles in the past prior to receiving treatment. With professional help and endless encouragement from those who understand your pain, you can show yourself that binge eating disorder is only a small bump on your road to happiness.
Choosing the Right Treatment for Binge Eating Disorder
There are many options for binge eating disorder treatment, so it’s important to choose one that provides individualized care from a treatment center that takes into account how your needs and experiences are different from those of other women and girls.
At Timberline Knolls, we offer residential treatment and a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for binge eating disorder, each of which has greater benefits depending on where you are in your journey. Some women and girls may participate in treatment at both levels, while others may require only one level of care.
- Residential: Members of your treatment team will provide round-the-clock care for you at this level in one of our comfortable lodges. Residential binge eating disorder treatment features individualized care with a trauma-informed approach, meal planning and food discovery sessions, and a variety of therapeutic interventions.
- PHP: At this level, you’ll take part in full treatment days at Timberline Knolls but can return to your home or choose to stay in one of our on-campus residences in the evenings and on weekends. You’ll build coping and processing skills, which focus on body image, medication education, and much more.
