Most people have heard of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. What most people do not know, however, is that there are many more kinds of disordered eating and that millions of Americans are dealing with these issues. Often, people struggle for years, even decades, without realizing that they can get help for their disordered eating. Our new program, Nourish for Disordered Eating, can help you or your loved one change your relationship with food and eating, learn to make healthy choices without restricting, and calm your anxieties. Even those who need to maintain special diets for conditions like diabetes can heal from disordered eating and live a healthy lifestyle that works for them.
What Kinds of Disordered Eating Are There?
Aside from the more well-known eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, there are disordered eating conditions that, even though they are less well-known, are no less serious for the people who live with them. Some of these are:
- Orthorexia – People with orthorexia have a life-disrupting level of interest in health. This can include eating, exercising, and nutrition.
- Dietary anxieties – Some people who need to maintain special diets can develop severe anxiety about eating and nutrition. Even though it is important to follow special diets for people with certain medical conditions, it is not healthy to experience severe anxiety about food.
- T1DE or “Diabulimia” – This is an especially serious condition in which a person with Type 1 diabetes reduces or stops taking their insulin to lose weight.
- Binge eating – People experiencing this condition consume unusually large amounts of food and feel overwhelming shame and guilt. Unlike those with bulimia, they do not purge.
Who Are the People Who Should Attend Nourish?
We at Grace Counseling welcome those who might not feel at home in other programs for disordered eating. For anyone seeking treatment for disordered eating in Fort Worth, Texas, our intensive outpatient program specializes in treating clients who want to reimagine their relationship with food and eating. Our program is co-ed because we understand that people of all genders can experience disordered eating. Our intensive outpatient program, which takes place three days a week, is perfect for those ready to seek help for disordered eating but still have obligations with work, family, or school that need attention.
What Is the Nourish Program Like? Is It Expensive?
The Nourish program is an intensive outpatient program so that our clients can receive the highest level of care but still go home at the end of the day and sleep in their beds. The Nourish program takes place during the week and includes group and individual therapy sessions. Clients attend the program part-time, leaving them time for work, school, and family obligations. Our clients and staff form a strong healing community, supporting one another, teaching, and learning.
