If you have been told that you will spend some time in an eating disorder center you may be nervous about what the treatment for eating disorders will be. Even if you know that you need help it can be a difficult thing to let someone that you do not even know into your life to help you get that help. It is important to keep in mind that the professionals at an eating disorder center are there to help you understand the roots of your eating disorder and teach you how to cope with the emotions surrounding it.
As part of the treatment for eating disorders you will spend time in individual therapy but you will also participate in group and family therapy as well. You will also take time to learn about nutrition and exercise so that you can understand the mechanics of a healthy balance.
