Our multidisciplinary approach

Eating disorders are treatable medical illnesses, but they do have complex underlying psychological and biological aspects. They are frequently present with other psychiatric conditions, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or trauma. If you have an eating disorder you may also suffer from physical health complications, such as heart conditions, gastrointestinal symptoms, fluid and electrolyte disturbances, or metabolic problems.
