“Treating Eating Disorders at the Intersection of Addiction”
While eating disorders may be viewed differently than substance use or other addiction, the function and treatment of both can often be viewed through a similar lens. In addition, it is not uncommon for someone struggling with an eating disorder to struggle with substance use, gambling, sex addition, or other addictive behaviors. This presentation is designed to aid in providing knowledge about how eating disorders and addiction often present similarly and how treating eating disorders at the intersection of addiction can be successfully implemented.
- Attendees will be able to identify the differences and similarities in presentation of substance use addiction and eating disorders.
- Attendees will be able to identify the potential function of both an eating disorder and other addictive behaviors and how these are similar in clients presenting with both.
- Attendees will gain an understanding of appropriate treatment modalities and interventions for use with clients struggling with the intersection of an eating disorder and addiction related behaviors.
