The “gold standard” for eating disorder treatment includes working with a multidisciplinary treatment team consisting of a physician, therapist and dietitian. I work closely with local dietitians and physicians to facilitate the best care for those with eating disorders. I work closely with University of Utah physicians, or the patients’ own physician, if desired. This treatment team approach allows for close collaboration, and most effective treatment.

Individuals struggling with eating disorders are often particularly skeptical about entering treatment. After all, the behaviors they engage in, whether it is undereating, overeating, purging, serve a function in their lives. Therefore, they are often frightened of “giving up” these behaviors.

Therefore, I believe it is important to identify the “functions” the behaviors serve and the needs they meet, and then identify healthier ways of meeting those needs. This can be a very difficult process, and it is often one that is hard for friends and family members to understand as it is often hard to believe that these harmful behaviors serve a purpose!

As difficult as this situation is, there is clear evidence that individuals can fully recover from these disorders, particularly if they receive expert professional help. Increasingly, insurance companies are recognizing the severity of these disorders, and advocacy groups have helped to increase coverage for the treatment of eating disorders.

Studies indicate that it is paramount that individuals receive long-term treatment in order to achieve long-term recovery from an eating disorder. For those who do not need more intensive care, outpatient therapy can provide that long-term support in a setting that allows you to continue your daily activities.
