Treatment centers for eating disorders were once rather hard to find. Either they were located in the same building or area as drug abuse treatment centers, and thus were relegated to just a small part of the overall program, or they were part of a psychiatric program at a hospital, and again were just sort of included in with everything else.

There are now treatment centers for eating disorders in many states. However, just like substance abuse, there are different types of eating disorders. These include anorexia nervosa, binge eating, and overeating.

The Healthy Living Eating Disorder Facility in National City, California is a treatment center that focuses on binge eating disorders. Treatment centers for binge eating disorders tailor their treatment programs to address this specific problem, which is manifested by a person eating as much as can possibly be taken in during a very short period of time, then using some method to expel or get rid of the food.

There are even some instances where a person does not eat an excessive amount, but consumes a normal meal. However, as soon as the meal is finished, that person immediately uses a method, either making oneself throw up or using a very harsh, very strong laxative to rid the body of the food just eaten.

Binge eating can be very dangerous. Not only does the body not receive the nutrients it needs because the food is expelled long before the digestion process is complete, but the constant throwing up or explosive bowel movements caused by laxative can cause damage to the organs and intestines.
