Treatment for Overeating Addiction

We understand that treating binge eating is a complex process. Using a combination of cognitive behavioral group therapy and individual psychotherapy, as well as holistic adjunctive treatment techniques, we help you address the personal issues that have been affecting your ability to fully enjoy your life.

Treatment for binge eating disorder at the Casa Palmera treatment center in San Diego is individualized for each patient. It begins with an evaluation by our professionals that includes a comprehensive nutritional assessment by a certified bio-medical nutritionist, as well as bio/neuro feedback with brain mapping. Both of these approaches help you ease your anxiety and help you build the necessary skills needed to make healthy food choices.

Yoga, Reiki, expressive art therapy and meditation are just a few of the adjunctive services available to compliment the individualized cognitive behavioral treatment plan designed by your team of psychiatrists and mental health professionals.

Binge Eating Disorder is a Disease

It is not your fault; it is a disease. With the treatment of binge eating, recovery is possible and a life filled with inner peace is in reach.

  • Social factors, such as an emphasis on appearance by society and the media, may contribute to problems with self-image, thus creating stress for those already biologically vulnerable to disordered eating. Current knowledge suggests that genes, combined with environmental stressors, can contribute to the development of an eating disorder.
  • Commonalities found in those with binge eating disorder include: suffering from low self-esteem, disorganized thought processes, difficulty recognizing and expressing emotions, a family history of depression, and/or trauma.
  • If you have a family member that has struggled with an eating disorder, your chance of developing the disease increases significantly.
  • Various life changes can trigger the onset of binge eating disorder.
  • Past trauma can cause one to use food to numb the pain and fear that can often feel too overwhelming to deal with.

How are the results scored?

If you scored below 50, it would be wise for you to 1) seek more information about anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa and 2) contact a counselor, pastor, teacher, or physician in order to find out if you have an eating disorder and, if you do, talk about what kind of assistance would be best for you.

If you scored between 50 and 60, it would be a good idea for you to talk to a counselor, pastor, teacher, or physician in order to find out if you have an eating disorder and, if you do, how to get some help.
