OCD and Anxiety
It often starts as a harmless desire to look good and feel better about yourself. But before you know it, an eating disorder can take a tremendous toll on your self-confidence, your relationships and your ability to live your life. It can consume your thoughts, cause you to distance yourself from the people and experiences you love most and, ultimately, destroy your health.
When you or someone you love struggles with an eating disorder, hope can be hard to see—but it is there, and we want to help you find it.
At Rogers Behavioral Health, we are committed to quality, innovation and positive outcomes when treating eating disorders. We’ve helped thousands of individuals successfully travel the road to resilience, including those with complex and co-occurring disorders.
Our experienced and dedicated team of psychiatrists, psychologists, internal medicine physicians, registered nurses, social workers, registered dietitians, behavioral specialists, experiential therapists and others work together to guide children, teens and adults—both male and female—through individualized treatment plans to overcome:
Through our physician-directed eating disorders programs, we work with you or your child on nutritional rehabilitation and, if needed, restoring your weight. You will undergo thorough psychological, medical, nursing, nutritional and social services assessments which your team uses to guide a comprehensive treatment plan specific to your needs. Our therapeutic approach is evidence based, with its effectiveness demonstrated regularly in outcome studies that Rogers conducts at all levels of care. Patient and family education are part of all treatment plans.
In addition to medical management, you or your child will work with your entire treatment team in following an intensive cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) model with an emphasis on graduated exposure and response prevention (ERP), to help:
Behavioral activation (BA) helps those with co-morbid mood disorders re-engage in life while experiential therapy including horticultural, recreational and art therapy can help you strengthen coping skills and connect and express your thoughts in many ways.
