Eating disorders are common in today’s society. People have different reasons to develop one. 

At Modern Recovery Services, you can receive online eating disorder therapy to help you work through your condition. 

Many stigmas come with having an eating disorder. 

When you speak to one of our online therapists, you can be at ease in your own home. You don’t have to worry about anyone staring at you or snickering at you. 

With our online counseling, we can help with the following:

  • You can learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. This is especially important for those with an eating disorder.
  • We can address psychological conditions or traumas that may have led to the disorder. 
  • We can help you learn how to resolve conflict in relationships.
  • We can help you learn how to cope with triggers and other things that can cause you to relapse. 
  • We offer you individual and group therapy sessions. 
  • You have a personal recovery coach who is available to you at any time.
  • We give you accountability and structure.
  • Online therapy costs less than traditional, in-person therapy.

What is Online Eating Disorder Therapy?

Eating disorders can often be misunderstood. They are not a lifestyle choice. These disorders are very serious and can be fatal if not treated properly.

There are four main types of eating disorders. Those are:

  • Anorexia Nervosa – People with this condition do a number of things:
    • Severely restrict food
    • Eat tiny amounts of food and only certain types
    • Avoid food altogether
    • Weigh themselves repeatedly
    • They may purge the foods they do eat
  • Bulimia Nervosa – People with this have frequent episodes of eating very large amounts of food with little control. This is followed by the need to compensate for this. Behaviors can include:
    • Forced vomiting
    • Excessively using diuretics or laxatives
    • Excessively exercising
    • Fasting
    • Combination of these
  • Binge-eating Disorder – People with this lose control over their eating. They have episodes of eating very large amounts of food. This leads to them being overweight or obese. This is the most common eating disorder in the U.S.
  • Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) – People who have this limit the type of food they eat or the amount they eat. They do not have the same fears as those with anorexia. They do not have enough calories to get to or maintain a healthy weight.

“People have hurdles to get to treatment, and we can remove those hurdles for them and make it more accessible”

Eating disorders are often a sign that something isn’t right. Usually, there are thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that lead to these disorders. 

Treatment for eating disorders can include therapy (individual, group, and/or family), medications, medical care, and nutritional counseling. When you receive online eating disorder therapy, we will find a treatment plan that works best for you.

Our process is easy. When you meet with your online therapist, you discuss any challenges you have throughout the day or week. 

You can tell your therapist how you feel about these challenges. You can discuss anything that has impacted your eating disorder or food choices. 

At Modern Recovery Services, we want you to be comfortable. Our counselors can help you feel at ease. They take the time to know just what you need.

Evidence-Based Online Treatment

Modern Recovery Services uses modern, evidence-based treatment options when treating eating disorders. Usually, a combination of therapies is the most effective. These may work for you:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps you change your thought patterns that contribute to the eating disorder. It can show you where changing thoughts can help change behaviors.

Interpersonal Therapy

This therapy works best for bulimia and binge-eating disorder. This would be looked at in the context of interpersonal and social contexts.

Family-Based Treatment (FBT)

FBT is most common among children and teenagers with eating disorders. This gives family members an important role in the recovery journey.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT helps to manage hard emotions. You can learn how to change those behaviors that you associate with your eating disorder. This is a form of CBT.

Psychoanalytic Therapy

This therapy would help you better understand the underlying cause of the eating disorder. It can help you identify and understand internal motives and conflicts.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is a little different because it focuses on changing your actions rather than your thoughts and feelings. You accept your feelings and commit to changing your actions.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Counseling and Dual Diagnosis Treatment

As with any mental health condition, eating disorders can often go hand-in-hand with substance use disorder. 

There are many times when a mental health disorder will go undiagnosed. Someone with an eating disorder learns how to hide their disorder and, in turn, learns how to hide substance usage, too. 

Up to 50% of people with an eating disorder turn to substances, too. This is a way for them to escape their thoughts and feelings. 

If you have an eating disorder and a substance addiction, this is called a co-occurring disorder or a dual diagnosis. We see a lot of people with a dual diagnosis here at Modern Recovery Services. 

People who struggle with eating disorders may turn to many different substances. These can include:

  • Alcohol
  • Diuretics (Diurex)
  • Laxatives (Miralax)
  • Emetics (Ipecac Syrup)
  • Amphetamines (Crystal Meth)
  • Heroin 
  • Cocaine

In the past, substance addiction and mental health disorders were treated separately. This is not the case anymore. Treating them at the same time is much more effective. 

When you have your online therapy session, you will talk about any substance abuse history. It is very important to be truthful about what you have tried or used. 

If you struggle with other mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety talk to your therapist about this, too. This helps them determine the right treatment plan for you.
