In New York, NY, Compassion Place Eating Disorder Treatment centers are available to treat the different types of eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and emotional eating. An eating disorder is sometimes referred to as or grouped with those conditions that are sometimes known as "lifestyle addictions".

Eating disorder treatment differs from that for drug or alcohol addiction, or other lifestyle addiction treatments. Eating is a necessary function that we must carry out in order to survive. In other words, it is something that must be done in order to maintain physical life. This is not so with alcohol or drug addiction, or other lifestyle addictions.

However, staff members at centers that offer the treatment protocol used by Compassion Place Eating Disorder Treatment in New York, New York know that for some people, even the knowledge that eating is a necessary part of life is not enough. For some reason, people who suffer from anorexia have a "skewed" impression of their body weight and appearance. They see excess weight where none exists; therefore, they eat as little as possible in order to "keep the weight off."

People who suffer from bulimia, sometimes called "binge-purge syndrome", on the other hand, will sometimes eat to excess. They will happily enjoy a four-course dinner, then, before it has time to digest and turn to fat, they will either make themselves throw up or take harsh laxatives to purge the food from their bodies. They, too, need the special services at Compassion Place Eating Disorder Treatment, New York, NY.

Emotional eating is exactly what it sounds like?a person eats in response to an emotion. It may be fear, sadness, anxiety, depression, or any other emotion, but to them the only way to handle it (or not handle it) is to eat. For them, the New York, NY, Compassion Place Eating Disorder Treatment staff is ready to show them how to overcome emotional eating and start eating for the right reason.

If you even think that you might suffer from an eating disorder, you can call (917) 832-1543. The people at the New York, NY, Compassion Place Eating Disorder Treatment facilities want to hear from you. They can help you determine if you do have this problem, and can offer help if you do.
