The treatment of anorexia nervosa involves four components:
- Restoring the person to a healthy weight
- Treating the psychological issues related to the eating disorder
- Reducing or eliminating behaviors or thoughts that lead to disordered eating
- Preventing relapse.
Different forms of psychotherapy, including individual, group and family-based, can help address the psychological reasons for the illness.
The combined approach of medical attention and supportive psychotherapy designed specifically for anorexia patients is the most effective care for their recovery. Learn more about anorexia treatment and treatment modalities at Rosewood.
