Of the different types of eating disorders, bulimia is one of the most common among young people and teens. Treatment for bulimia is approached by controlling binge eating and dealing with various psychosocial disorders.

Treatment for bulimia includes both medications as well as psychological counseling. Because the disorder is mostly of a psychological nature, antidepressants are the main medications used in eating disorder treatment.

Inpatient bulimia treatment is rarely required unless the case is severe. Many 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 as well. Treatments for bulimia include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Interpersonal Therapy. Both of these therapies have been shown to achieve immense improvements in the condition of patients suffering from bulimia. In addition, these therapies also deal with concerns about weight gain and unhealthy diet fads.
