Nutritional evaluation and counseling

Providence Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Program dietitians interview patients, review laboratory data and complete an assessment to determine nutrition risk and establish healthy weight and nutrition goals. Throughout patients’ treatments, the dietitians offer continual feedback and teach the patients about healthy nutrition practices. They support patients’ growth toward healthy eating and weight stabilization.

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.
