Research has shown through multiple independent studies that individuals receiving bulimia residential treatment are more likely to have significant sustained long-term recovery than those who have only outpatient treatment. Castlewood has one of the most highly regarded and credentialed residential bulimia treatment centers in the nation.
Residential bulimia treatment allows clients to live and receive therapy is an environment of compassion and support. Castlewood’s philosophy is centered on creating a consistent relationship between each client and their primary therapist, dietitian, and psychiatrist. Our staff takes the time to adequately assess each client and implement an effective customized treatment plan in our residential bulimia treatment program at Castlewood.
Individuals with bulimia nervosa need a unique combination of care approaches to meet their therapeutic, nutritional, and psychological needs. Castlewood’s multidisciplinary bulimia residential treatment team closely collaborates to ensure that the underlying issues behind the eating disorder are identified and treated. Each client is helped to understand the reasons behind their disorder, and frequent opportunities for skills development and practice are integrated into residential bulimia treatment at Castlewood.
Many clients with bulimia nervosa also have an associated co-occurring disorder. As the eating disorder behaviors improve, co-occurring issues (such as anxiety, depression, or addictions) may become more intense, as other ways are used to cope with the deep underlying issues that led to bulimia in the first place. During residential bulimia treatment both the eating disorder and co-occurring problems are evaluated and treated simultaneously. By treating all issues at the same time, in the safe and supportive environment of residential care, clients become more ready for transition into more autonomous levels of care, armed with positive coping skills and techniques.
