Substance Use Disorder Track

Often times, patients face the challenges of both an eating disorder and a substance use disorder. In fact, almost half of people with eating disorders have substance use problems according to current research. If you have an eating disorder, you’re five times more likely to have a substance use problem than the average population.

Some people rely on substance use to suppress their appetites, while others rely on it as a way to avoid their eating disorder and related problems. Without resolving the underlying issues of a patient’s eating disorder, both struggles will plague them. The good news is that there are healthier strategies patients can learn, and recovery is possible – but it’s vitally important to treat both diagnoses. Patients need a safe environment where they feel free to discuss and explore their relationship with addictive substances, as well as the behaviors fueling their eating disorder.

Patients in the Substance Use Disorder Track attend a specialty group that provides support with:

  • Maintaining abstinence from substance use during the course of treatment.
  • Exploring the role and function of substance use and its relationship to eating disorders.
  • Understanding personal patterns of use and making choices about the role, if any, substances or other potentially addictive behaviors will play in eating disorder recovery.
  • Further developing skills to effectively manage urges and stressors and enhance health and well-being
  • Creating a recovery/discovery tree
  • Identifying relapse triggers
  • Creating recovery skills and strategies
  • Developing a recovery plan

There are healthier strategies patients can learn, and recovery from addictive substances
is possible. Just take the first step by calling us at (866) 771-0681.

The Right Environment
for Recovery:

Our Substance Use Disorder Track helps patients heal in a comfortable, supportive space. Our unique approach, CAMSA, helps regain health through Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, a Sense of Self, and Action - the foundations of true empowerment.

We help patients get control over their eating habits as well as their substance use.

Participating in the Substance Use Treatment Program

As a Partial Hospitalization Program, the Substance Use Treatment Track includes therapy and therapeutic activities, ten hours a day, seven days a week, with shortened schedules on weekends. If patients live locally, they return home each day after the program. Female patients from out of town may live at our Connections House during the program, or we can assist with finding other affordable local housing options.

When patients complete the program, they transition to our Intensive Outpatient Program. They start spending time away from EDcare while still working with their treatment team and receiving the support needed to experience successful recovery. Patients participate in their regular day-to-day responsibilities while they learn and incorporate new skills in the Intensive Outpatient Program.

Our treatments help the mind, body and spirit recover. Our therapeutic approach helps patients detach from old behavior patterns, manage their emotions and fears, and make positive changes in their daily life that they can sustain.

Options include: outpatient treatment while maintaining participation in sport, outpatient treatment with removal of sport participation, or a higher level of care such as our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment.
