Eating disorders affect adolescents and teenagers across the country. However, these problems regularly go unnoticed. With the help of our teen eating disorder treatment at Selah House, your child can regain their health and overall wellness. This adolescent program will help your teen build the foundation for a healthy, bright future.
What is Teen Eating Disorder Treatment?
Teen eating disorder treatment will address specific disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and other eating and feeding disorders. Moreover, our professional staff will also determine if there are any secondary issues. For example, these may include anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), or self-injury.
In fact, many teenagers who struggle with an eating disorder often face mental health problems. Treating one without the other may lead to relapse after treatment.
How is this possible? These conditions can negatively impact and influence each other. For instance, anxiety or depression may lead your teen to develop an eating disorder. However, the eating disorder may also lead to the development of anxiety or depression.
By treating these root causes of the disorder, we can help your teen grow on a path to better health.
