Binge-Eating Disorder Treatment Options in California

binge-eating disorder treatment

Binge-eating disorder treatment can help you manage this disorder for good. The most common eating disorder, binge eating, involves eating large quantities of food in a short period of time. People may not even realize that their behavior constitutes an eating disorder. Binge-eating disorder stops with the consumption of food; it does not involve purging the food and focusing on calories, which is associated with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. However, it can be a serious eating disorder nonetheless. 

At Resurgence Behavioral Health, we treat eating disorders and other behavioral and mental health conditions. We offer comprehensive care encompassing inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, aftercare, and clinically supervised detox. We also offer dual diagnosis treatment and aftercare. Patients can expect to participate in individual therapy sessions and group counseling sessions that reflect evidence-based (medically traditional) therapies, alternative treatments, and holistic therapies. Our multi-type treatment approach helps clients build a strong recovery foundation.

The binge-eating disorder affects about 3% of the population. The disorder can cause individuals considerable distress. Our clinicians help clients manage the compulsion to overeat using best therapeutic practices like cognitive-behavioral therapy. Our clinicians are experienced and licensed to treat a multitude of mental and behavioral health disorders. Clients will find a welcoming treatment center where they can get individualized care and access to our amenities.

What is Binge-Eating Disorder?

Binge-eating disorder involves compulsive overeating in a short period of time. As mentioned, it does not include purging by vomiting or with the use of laxatives like other eating disorders. However, people with the disorder might obsessively diet or experience worsening binges owing to emotional stress. This eating disorder can be managed. Our clinicians help clients understand how learned behaviors and emotional triggers caused the disorder to develop. Working together, patients and therapists can develop strategies for managing this chronic condition and preventing a relapse. 

Signs and Symptoms of Binge-Eating Disorder

There are various signs and symptoms of binge-eating disorder. Some common signs/symptoms of the disorder are:

  • Eating large amounts of food even if not hungry or after a meal.
  • Eating to the point of discomfort.
  • Binge eating in response to emotional stress.
  • Eating so fast you don’t notice how it feels.
  • Binge eating alone or in secret.
  • Organizing aspects of your life around binge eating.
  • Thinking obsessively about food and food cravings.
  • Hiding food in secret places.
  • Hoarding food.
  • Avoiding social situations where eating is involved.
  • Feeling guilt, shame, or low self-esteem as a result of binge eating. 

If you notice that some of these symptoms begin to recur habitually or with increasing frequency (weekly), you may have binge-eating disorder and should visit a treatment center to have your condition evaluated by a behavioral health specialist. This disorder can be managed, but treatment is needed.

All of the staff and nurses at resurgence are phenomenal. They helped me a lot and gave me hope at my lowest.—the two different times I came to both of their locations. Costa Mesa and riverside locations. I would recommend their programs to anybody! That is if you are looking for detox AND 30 day residential, not just detox. Thank you Resurgence! <3

Importance of Seeking Treatment

california binge-eating disorder treatment

Binge-eating disorder, like many behavioral and mental health conditions, is a chronic condition. However, people can achieve recovery and prevent relapses by managing their condition effectively so that symptoms can be eliminated. Treatment may take time, but it is often multi-type in nature. For instance, it’s not uncommon for people with this disorder to undergo therapy and be prescribed medication. A high-quality treatment center like Resurgence Behavioral Health can provide the treatment needed for people with this condition to achieve long-term recovery.

Types of Binge-Eating Disorder Treatment Available in California

At Resurgence Behavioral Health, clients who seek help for binge-eating disorder treatment can expect to take part in various forms of psychotherapy. These sessions help clients identify problematic thoughts and emotions connected to difficult behaviors. Nutrition counseling and medication can support the recovery process — our treatment center tailors treatment to suit the needs of each client. We can adjust clients’ treatment plans as their support needs change over time. Clients can reduce their support needs as they grow in managing their condition. Some people choose to attend ongoing support sessions to maintain their long-term recovery. 

Psychotherapy Approaches for Binge-Eating Disorder

The two most common psychiatric approaches to the treatment of binge-eating disorder are cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy. Therapists help patients develop more healthful ways of managing the problematic emotions and thoughts that govern their unhealthy behaviors. Using problem-solving techniques, interpersonal therapy helps clients address their life’s stress problems or conflicts. Other types of psychotherapy that may be included in treatment plans for this disorder include dialectical behavior therapy, individual psychotherapy, and psychodynamic therapy. 

Nutritional Counseling and Management

Nutritional counseling is typically part of plans for binge-eating disorder treatment. During therapy sessions, clients are educated about their condition and related aspects, such as their health and nutritional well-being. Clients can benefit from learning how to manage their dietary needs effectively. This part of treatment and other therapeutic approaches can help clients achieve improved condition stability and, eventually, relief from symptoms. 

Medication and Supplemental Treatments

The mental aspects of this disorder may respond well to medications. Our clinicians can prescribe medication to treat mental and mood disorders or symptoms that impact binge-eating disorder. Medication and supplemental treatments are not a cure for binge-eating disorders, but they can reduce symptoms and improve clients’ management of their condition. We’ll carefully evaluate your condition to determine if medication and supplemental therapies are ideal for you. 

Lifestyle Changes and Self-Help Strategies

Long-term recovery and effective management of binge-eating disorder will not occur overnight. Developing the skills and strategies needed to manage this condition takes time. Patients must make certain lifestyle changes, identified during therapy sessions, to those that support recovery. After making changes, practicing the new behaviors and routines that support a healthy lifestyle takes time. Our therapists can help with their support and expertise. As a client at Resurgence Behavioral Health, you’re not alone. Participating in individual and group therapy sessions can provide the support you need to make these changes and learn to manage your condition successfully.
