What are Eating Disorders?
Eating disorders are serious medical conditions involving eating behaviors that negatively impact the physical, emotional, and mental health of individuals with these disorders. They are complex illnesses that could be life-threatening if not treated.
Disorders involving eating and food often present themselves in the young adult and teen years, though they can occur at any stage in life. With proper treatment, eating disorders can be overcome and the serious health consequences can often be reversed.
The most common eating disorders are binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, and anorexia nervosa.
Transitional Living for Eating Disorder Recovery
StepHouse Recovery offers living spaces for people who are on the road to eating disorder recovery. Transitional living offers a safe, comfortable environment that eases the patient back into independent living without leaving them without care or support.
The transitional living model at StepHouse Recovery allows for a peer-supported system as a medium between inpatient care and the return to the ‘real world.’ We help ease the changeover by allowing the individual to acquire and implement the necessary skills to function outside the care of a clinical environment or treatment facility.
How We Approach Eating Disorders
At StepHouse Recovery, we know that recovery is a long journey that requires consistent support. For many people, returning to regular day-to-day life after treatment is more difficult than anticipated.
We believe that successful recovery is a long process and are eager to provide transitional living and assistance as a stepping stone to long-term health.
