What is OSFED?
Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED) was previously known as eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS). While this diagnosis may seem like a less specific diagnosis, it is no less serious than other eating disorders. OSFED was developed to include people who do not meet the stricter criteria of anorexia or bulimia, but still have an eating disorder.
When Is OSFED Treatment Appropriate?
When a person is struggling with OSFED, while the symptoms can vary, the seriousness does not. OSFED is no less serious than other eating disorders and professional treatment is often required for long-term recovery. At Moriah, our eating disorder treatment program can help.
Each client may struggle with different eating disorder behaviors and related issues. At Moriah, we support each client, developing the most appropriate and effective treatment plan to meet their clinical needs. Our goal is to support our clients not only throughout the treatment process, but beyond through our alumni support program.
What type of Treatment is best?
While each person struggling with an eating disorder has a unique situation and clinical needs, since the symptoms of OSFED can vary more widely, providing flexible treatment is necessary. We offer several different levels of care including residential, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), virtual therapy, supported living, and alumni support so we can match each client to the treatment program that is appropriate for them and their clinical needs.
We focus on addressing the specific clinical needs for each client. We are dedicated to doing that in a comfortable, safe, supportive environment. Treatment at Moriah is tailored to with the most effective combination to address eating disorder behavior and associated issues, while encouraging and supporting our clients in their healing.
