Eating Disorders Can Be Devastating

The circuitous nature of eating disorders can be devastating for the suffering individuals and difficult for family and friends to understand. The physical effects brought on by abnormal eating habits such as binging, purging, and starving are merely symptoms of a complex disorder that begins primarily at an emotional and mental level. Because of this, recovery from an eating disorder must treat the underlying emotional and mental causes as well as regaining physical health and wellness through balanced nutrition and lifestyle. If you or a loved one is struggling with an eating disorder, support is within reach.

How The Program Works

The “Courage to HealEating Disorder Program at Delray Recovery Center is a professional treatment program designed for individuals suffering from the full range of eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating.

The “Courage to Heal” program draws from a comprehensive curriculum and variety of treatment options to create a customized plan based on each individual’s specific clinical needs. These customized plans are developed through the collaborative efforts of Delray Recovery Center’s experienced and dedicated team of psychiatrists, therapists, and physicians.
