Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Trauma-informed care during treatment for binge-eating disorder

Dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that was developed in the late 1980s. Through the decades, DBT has proved to be effective at helping people to develop healthier abilities in four areas: distress tolerance, emotional regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness. 

DBT principles can be incorporated into both individual and group sessions. While you’re receiving treatment for binge-eating disorder at Timberline Knolls, DBT can help you to overcome feelings of shame or guilt, develop more effective means of coping with stress, make better decisions, end negative behavior patterns, and learn more productive ways of interacting with the world around you.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

Healing from the effects of trauma during binge-eating disorder treatment at Timberline Knolls

If your struggles with binge-eating disorder are related to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other effects of trauma, EMDR may be an extremely beneficial part of your personalized treatment at Timberline Knolls. 

EMDR has proved to be particularly effective at helping individuals ease distress related to past trauma. This integrative therapeutic approach promotes healing in a much shorter period of time than had been previously achievable via other types of trauma treatment.

Pharmacologic Therapy

Our goal is to identify and address all of the obstacles that are preventing you from living a healthier and more productive life. This includes ensuring that we’re providing the most effective treatment for any co-occurring disorders that you’ve been experiencing. 

Symptoms of certain co-occurring mental health disorders can be eased with prescription medications. If you can benefit from pharmacological care during your time with us, we can incorporate this service into your personalized binge-eating disorder treatment plan. 

If you receive such services, you’ll work closely with members of our psychiatric staff to ensure that you receive the optimal dosages of the medication that is most beneficial to you.

TK saved my life, and I am forever grateful for that. I now have been months free from my eating disorder... They really make sure you know your skills before you leave!
