Eating Disorders – Idaho Falls

Recovery is possible.

Face Fears, Overcome Problems, and Achieve Peace.

Eating disorders are psychological conditions which bring about unhealthy, obsessive, or disordered eating habits. Eating disorders have both physical and emotional symptoms. Our mission and commitment is to teach scientifically proven technologies and skills to face fear, overcome problems, and create new visions to achieve greater peace of mind, joy in life, and happiness in yourself and your family. 

Eating disorders can become all-consuming. Help is available.

Eating disorders are very complex and can cause multiple medical problems, some even life-threatening. Treatment can include cognitive behavioral therapy, medications, nutrition education and management, and family-based therapies. We can work with medical doctors as well as specialized dieticians or nutritionists to help bring about a full recovery.
