Why Adult Residential Treatment at Magnolia Creek?
A variety of factors contributes to the development of an eating disorder, including societal pressures, neurobiology, trauma histories, family dynamics, high levels of stress, and more. Regardless of the eating disorder type, controlling weight can be one motivator for an eating disorder and another can be maintaining control of something that no one else can. Therefore, those who have struggled for a long time tend to do the best in residential programs. Additionally, those who don’t have the support they need at home or family members who encourage unhealthy behaviors should start with a residential program.
While outpatient treatment often includes the same therapies and similar care to residential treatment, it doesn’t provide the accountability these individuals need. In addition, people with co-occurring disorders often benefit from residential programs . Dual diagnosis therapy addresses more than one mental health disorder at a time, giving individuals the chance to recover more fully.
Having access to around-the-clock accountability and support is invaluable when starting out on the journey to a healthy relationship with food. It’s also important have access to medical care in case of an emergency quickly. Working with a residential treatment facility can make the process of recovery easier and more comfortable
