Out of the different types of eating disorders, bulimia is very common among young people and teens and adequate attention must be paid to different treatment options for bulimia.
Bulimia treatment is essentially the control of binge eating and dealing with various psychosocial disorders.
Treatment for bulimia includes both medications as well as psychological counseling. Antidepressants are the main medications used in eating disorder treatment as the disorder is mostly of a psychological nature. Inpatient bulimia treatment is rarely required unless the case is severe. Various bulimia treatment centers also focus on long-term and short-term treatment of bulimia.
Various methods of counseling are used in the treatment of bulimia and binge eating, and these may include treatment for depression and substance abuse. Treatments for bulimia include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy. Both these therapies have been shown to achieve immense improvement in the condition of patients suffering from bulimia. In addition, these therapies also deal with concerns about weight gain and unhealthy diet fads.
