Eating disorders ongoing psychiatric assessment and medication management
Providence Adult Eating Disorders Treatment Program psychiatrists meet with patients to review their primary and secondary diagnoses and treatment progress. The psychiatrists also work actively with patients and program therapists to support patients in changing their problematic behaviors. Medication effectiveness is reviewed regularly, and recommendations may be made for new medications, changes in medication dosages or stopping medications.
For more than 25 years, Providence Adult Eating Disorders Treatment Program has helped patients recover from anorexia, bulimia and atypical eating disorders. Our treatment process begins with a thorough clinical assessment to address current and past eating practices and the physical and emotional consequences of these practices. This includes the evaluation of symptoms, such as depression, anxiety and substance use, as well as lifestyle factors, such as social support from family and friends. As patients approach or re-approach treatment, their readiness and the timing of treatment are also considered. Recovery is a process that requires persistence, courage and effective treatment resources.
