Eating Disorder Treatment Center
Disorders of this type are generated when a person uses food to cover their emotions, or to receive an emotional reward as pleasure. The problem is when you try to repeat that feeling of pleasure and our mind asks us for more and more. This is when the eating disorder develops.
At Marbella Recovery we treat these eating problems through a cognitive behavioral treatment reinforced with Relapse Prevention based on Mindfulness.
These types of disorders present an added challenge, since a person cannot stop eating and the temptation is continually presented.
For effective maintenance of results, we advise our clients to attend 12-step meetings called Compulsive Eaters Anonymous.
