The most effective treatments of eating disorders include psychotherapy or psychological counseling along with medical and nutrition support and guidance, and a support group. A team of professionals may include dietitians, nurse practitioners, physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists and nurses who work together to develop an individualized treatment plan. It is most important that the individual trust the professionals involved in the recovery process. It may take several phone calls or visits to find the right professional for your situation, but it is worth taking the time.
For more information on how to choose a treatment team, see the FEAST (Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment of Eating Disorders) guide here.
