If your child is struggling with an eating disorder and perhaps another disorder such as substance abuse you may not be sure where to turn. You know you need to worry about both issues but you may feel as though you have to choose between the two. Fortunately that is not the case, as there is eating disorder treatment centers that are specifically for teens and offer what is called a dual diagnosis program. This means that the treatment center will address both disorders during your child’s treatment time.
The Center for Discovery offers a dual diagnosis treatment in its eating disorder treatment centers that can help with substance abuse, drinking, anxiety, depression and more. Your child will get the help they need for their eating disorder but their other struggles that could make it hard for them to stay healthy will also be addressed at the same time.
