The Connecticut-based recovery center, The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health helps individuals overcome their eating disorder in the long run through DBT and mindfulness-based relaxation therapy.

[Westport, 4/4/2019] The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health (CCBH) offers Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to people suffering from bulimia and binge eating disorder. The program includes comprehensive treatments founded on psychotherapies, self-care methods, and recovery techniques.

A Therapy for All Ages

Eating disorders, such as bulimia, anorexia, and binge-eating, affect about 10 million men and 20 million women in the US. The number continues to rise annually, affecting younger and younger individuals. Social pressures to be thin remain a major cause of developing an eating disorder.

Treating an eating disorder should involve a multidisciplinary team which includes a behavioral therapist, nutritionist, a medical doctor, and a psychologist. That is why the DBT program is an ideal way to help people recover from an eating disorder.

The DBT Process

The DBT program focuses on helping individuals fight the urge to binge in the long run. Patients will join a 26-week group-only program where they will learn core DBT skills, such as:

• Mindfulness
• Emotional regulation
• Distress tolerance
• Interpersonal effectiveness

Moreover, the CCBH explains that DBT and mindfulness-based relaxation contributes to reducing, if not eliminating, binge eating and binge-purge behaviors. The treatment center has a team of eating disorder experts who provide mental tools to help patients develop healthy coping skills.

The team guides patients through unpleasant memories, thoughts, and emotions. This activity helps individuals facing an eating disorder understand these feelings without judgment.
