Eating Disorders


Many of us have been affected by eating disorders, through family or friends. The most common eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. When an individual is suffering with an eating disorder, they use food to deal with the overwhelming fear and emotions that they feel. Not eating, binging, and purging are all ways of manipulating food to self-soothe and help distract from the problems they are facing in their life. At Center for Discovery New England, we understand that while symptoms may be similar from person to person, the underlying factors that your loved one faces are unique to them and their eating disorder. Understanding that symptoms and behavior may be similar in many cases, while the underlying emotional contributors are different for everyone is critical to our treatment process. Based on this understanding and with years of successful outcomes, we provide treatment that is not only intensive and specialized, but also personalized for each client.

Anorexia Nervosa


Adolescents dealing with anorexia nervosa, often shortened to anorexia, starve themselves to the point of being extremely thin. Both males and females with anorexia become preoccupied with food, body weight, calories and exercise. Many times, adolescents and teens suffering with anorexia weigh themselves constantly and only eat very small amounts of certain foods. Anorexics also have an intense fear of gaining weight and will diet obsessively.

Bulimia Nervosa


Adolescents with bulimia consume large quantities of food and then purge that food. Purging is done by vomiting, fasting, over exercising, or using laxatives or diuretics. Adolescents with bulimia often become very secretive and use long showers to try to hide their purging behavior. Both male and female adolescents suffering with bulimia may use the restroom immediately after or during meals and will follow strict diets. In many cases, these adolescents will exhibit oppositional behavior and mood swings.

Binge Eating Disorder


With binge eating disorder, adolescents eat large amounts of food in a short period of time. Male and female adolescents suffering with binge eating may discuss strict diets, but are ultimately not able to stop their binge eating. Often, they skip breakfast while eating larger meals for both lunch and dinner. Adolescents with binge eating disorder eat very quickly and many eat late night meals filled with sweet foods and carbohydrates.
