What eating disorder treatment is available?
There are a few different psychological treatments for eating disorders. The mainstay therapy for eating disorder treatment is Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Enhanced (CBT-E), followed by Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). Treatment plans typically consist of a combination of therapies, including nutrition education and management, medical monitoring, and eating disorder counselling.
