Eating Disorders Treated at Veritas Collaborative

Our eating disorder treatment centers offer a comprehensive range of personalized treatment options designed to address various eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions.

Veritas Collaborative provides state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatment for the following types of eating disorders:

Anorexia nervosa

Anorexia nervosa is a condition marked by an inability to consume enough food to maintain weight and/or growth trajectories, an extreme fear of weight gain, and a distorted body image.

The treatment of anorexia at Veritas involves:

  • Restoration of a healthy weight and nutritional status
  • Treatment of medical complications associated with malnourishment, including electrolyte imbalances and cardiac issues
  • Discussion of body image issues and unlearning of society’s impossible beauty standards
  • Therapeutic meals to reduce fear of certain foods through exposure, practice therapeutic skills, and reintroducing eating as a social experience
  • Development of coping skills surrounding food anxieties and phobias 
  • Supporting the development of a positive self-esteem and development of a realistic perception of body weight and shape
  • Implementing strategies to prevent relapse and maintain long-term recovery

Bulimia nervosa

Bulimia nervosa is a disorder characterized by cycles of binge eating followed by compensatory behaviors like self-induced vomiting and excessive exercise.

The treatment of bulimia at Veritas involves:

  • Creation of regular, balanced eating patterns
  • Treatment of medical complications associated with purging, including dental problems and electrolyte imbalances
  • Development of healthier coping mechanisms to manage stressors
  • Identification of the underlying psychological issues contributing to the development and maintenance of bulimia
  • Promotion of self-monitoring and awareness of binge and purge behaviors
  • Development of a positive self-esteem and body image
  • Development of strategies to prevent relapse and maintain long-term recovery

Binge eating disorder (BED)

Binge eating disorder (BED) involves episodes of excessive food consumption often triggered by negative emotional stimuli and a lack of control over eating.

The treatment of BED at Veritas involves:

  • Establishing regular, balanced meal patterns
  • Treatment of the physical complications of BED, including gallbladder disease (cholecystitis) and hypertension
  • Treatment of the emotional triggers contributing to binge eating, as well as the development of healthier coping mechanisms 
  • Identification of the underlying psychological issues contributing to the development and maintenance of binge eating disorder
  • Promotion of mindful eating practices and increased awareness of hunger and fullness cues
  • Development of self-compassion and positive body image
  • Education on how to prevent relapse and maintain long-term recovery

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) is characterized by selective eating that causes a continual inability to meet appropriate nutritional needs. This inability is often due to a variety of factors, including an apparent lack of interest in food, food avoidance due to its sensory qualities, and concern over adverse consequences of eating food.

The treatment of ARFID at Veritas involves:

  • Exposure to foods that bring anxiety and broadening of the variety of foods eaten
  • Treatment of nutritional deficiencies and if necessary, promotion of weight gain or maintenance
  • Therapy addressing the underlying psychological issues contributing to the development and maintenance of ARFID
  • Education and support for caregivers to create a positive environment during mealtimes and encourage adherence to treatment goals 
  • Education on strategies for coping with anxiety and managing anxiety related to food or phobias
  • Exposure to methods meant to prevent relapse and encourage long-term recovery

Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED)

Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED) is characterized by eating disorder symptoms that impair a person’s life but do not fit the diagnostic criteria of other eating disorders.

The treatment of OSFED at Veritas involves:

  • Identification and treatment of specific disordered eating behaviors, such as restricting, bingeing, and purging
  • Treatment of any physical complications associated with the specific disordered eating behavior(s) present, such as gastrointestinal complications and osteoporosis
  • Identification of emotional triggers and development of healthier coping mechanisms to manage emotions without resorting to disordered eating behavior(s)
  • Identification of the underlying psychological issues contributing to the development and maintenance of OSFED
  • Promotion of balanced, regular eating patterns and treatment of nutritional deficiencies
  • Encouragement of self-compassion and positive body image
  • Education on methods meant to prevent relapse and encourage long-term recovery

Co-Occurring Disorders

    Eating disorders often occur alongside a range of other psychiatric and developmental disorders. At Veritas Collaborative, we understand the impact co-occurring disorders can have on the development and maintenance of an eating disorder. Therefore, eating disorders are treated alongside co-occurring disorders such as:

    • Anxiety disorder
    • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
    • Depression
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
    • Substance use disorder
