Center for Eating Disorders

Eating is a part of daily living. Many traditions and social activities are centered around eating. However, for some, food represents a struggle filled with fear of eating too much or too little, or constantly thinking about food. This is a problem that can grow with time. Eating disorders are life-threatening behaviors that cause deterioration in functioning at all levels: physical, social, psychological, and spiritual.

For over a decade, the Center for Eating Disorders at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital has been helping those who struggle with eating disorders, as well as their families. Our comprehensive approach treats all eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive and emotional overeating, and binge-eating. Our program is the place to help you begin your journey back to enjoying life again.
