Los Angeles Binge Eating Therapy

The mainstream media is fond of joking that Los Angeles is the most image-conscious place on Earth.  And while that may be true in many respects, there is a dark side to this fact that is no laughing matter.  Eating disorders run rampant in Los Angeles, especially bulimia and anorexia – the two conditions associated most with self-image.  Less publicized but still potentially dangerous among eating disorders is binge eating.  Binge eating disorder runs counter to the image-aware denizens of Hollywood, but is still a considerable problem amongst the residents of mainstream Los Angles

Los Angeles binge eating therapy programs help individuals who are unable to control their eating habits before the condition has a chance to damage that individual’s health permanently.     Southern California is home to some of the finest eating disorder treatment programs in the country, and binge eating is no exception.

What is a Binge Eating Disorder?

One of the most common eating disorders, binge eating can strike men and women of all ages and socio-economic groups.  The condition features episodes of uncontrollable eating binges and, if left untreated, can bring about a number of health problems, including heart disease and diabetes.

What are the Symptoms of Binge Eating Disorder?

The following represent the most common signs and symptoms of a binge eating disorder – and a condition that may indeed require professional therapy:

  • Is unable to control the amount of food that they eat in a single sitting
  • Eats a much larger-than-normal amount of food for a single sitting
  • Eats faster than other people would consider “normal”
  • Usually eats alone in order to hide their condition from friends or family

Finding Binge Eating Therapy in Los Angeles

An individual who is suffering from a binge eating disorder needs professional help.  In the city of Los Angeles, the search for that help begins with a psychiatric counselor or family doctor.  Both of these medical professionals should be well-versed in the treatment of eating disorders – and will be able to refer the individual to a binge eating disorder treatment program within the metropolitan area.

As for where, specifically, these programs can be found, Los Angeles is home to several areas that are rich with treatment professionals.   Most commonly, binge eating therapy programs can be found in:

  • Santa Monica
  • Westwood
  • Beverly Hills
  • West Los Angeles
  • Downtown Los Angeles

 

Within these areas, there are both residential and outpatient eating disorder programs.  For binge eating patients, outpatient care is generally considered the most appropriate choice (in the case of anorexia treatment, residential care is a safer option).  Outpatient binge eating therapy most commonly includes psychiatric counseling to better understand the root causes of the condition and nutritional counseling to help the individual be smarter about what they eat and how they plan their meals.
