Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders are not “just about food” and they are not a choice someone makes. Anyone can develop an eating disorder, they do not discriminate. Any body type, shape, size, weight, age, ethnicity or gender can struggle with an eating disorder.

If you feel like you may have disordered eating, seeing a healthcare professional can be an important step. Eating disorders are treatable!

At Moriah, our experts have been helping women and teen girls with eating disorders for years. They understand how complex they can be and how difficult it can be. We know that it can be difficult to determine exactly when you may be struggling with an eating disorder and that reaching out may not be easy, even when its necessary.

If you think there is a chance you may have an eating disorder, we have put together a brief eating disorder quiz that is designed to help you better understand what may be some symptoms.

Learn more about yourself and eating disorder symptoms

 

While this quiz is designed to help you understand more about yourself and possible symptoms, we still strongly encourage anyone who believes they may have an eating disorder to reach out to a trained medical professional. If you are not sure where to find a professional to talk to, please contact us and we will help you find resources. Or you may want to visit NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association).
