Magnolia Creek Alumnus
Why Eating Disorder Treatment Is Important
- .5% to 3.7% will suffer from anorexia
- 1% to 4.2% will suffer from bulimia
- 5% will suffer from binge eating disorder (BED)
We know that a variety of factors contribute to the development of an eating disorder including, but not limited to societal pressures, neurobiology, trauma histories, family dynamics, and high levels of stress. Regardless of the type of eating disorder, controlling weight is one motivator for an eating disorder and another is being in control of something no one else can.
At Magnolia Creek, our therapeutic environment is designed to provide a whole-person approach to treatment. We explore the issues and experiences related to eating disorders and challenge the thoughts and behaviors that prevent women from living their life fully.
Evidence-Based Treatment at Magnolia Creek
Evidence-based treatment is at the core of everything we do. At the same time, we take a holistic approach, providing comprehensive treatment in a home-like setting. But what’s sets our evidence-based treatment for eating disorders apart from other treatment programs?
Magnolia Creek’s programs emphasize self-acceptance validation, and personal empowerment, acknowledging that the client is the most important member of the treatment team. The evidence-based treatment for eating disorders at Magnolia Creek is active rather than passive, collaborative rather than imposed, and personal rather than detached. Our holistic program addresses the medical, nutritional, psychological, spiritual, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of our clients so they can fully recover, not simply manage their eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions.
