[WESTPORT, 01/13/2021] – The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health, a dedicated group of psychotherapists in the U.S., is the leading provider of treatment options for eating disorders.
Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening medical conditions that affect the mind and body. In the U.S. alone, illnesses like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder affect around 20 million women and 10 million men. Every year, these conditions continue to impact more young people thanks to societal pressures about body size and unhealthy eating habits.
Eating disorders in children
Many people struggle with full-blown eating disorders from an early age. Research shows that over half of girls between 6-12 years old are concerned about their weight. Early signs of body dissatisfaction can prevent a child from fully enjoying life. Any type of eating disorder can also have serious ramifications in one’s adult life. This is why early intervention is crucial.
Children exhibiting early signs of problematic eating patterns respond well to evidence-based treatments. Such approach begins with a thorough age-appropriate evaluation to identify the extent and impact of the symptoms to the patient. The child and his or her family will undergo psychoeducation alongside necessary intervention by a team of dieticians, behavioral therapists, and/or psychopharmacologists. Depending on the individual circumstances, some patients may benefit from an outpatient level of care while others may first require referral to a higher level of treatment. Advanced care may be provided in a hospital, residential treatment center, or intensive day program to ensure the patient’s safety and well-being.
Safe and hands-on medical care
At The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health, every patient is provided with a safe and nurturing space to heal. The Center’s goal is to help patients and their families gain the strength to manage the symptoms of their condition and respond to stressful situations in a positive way.
