AABA recognizes that recovery takes courage and hard work. Having clinicians who specialize in treating eating disorders can facilitate this process. Like most
relationships, a treatment relationship relies on a good “fit”. For information about Choosing a Treatment

Individuals with eating disorders can make a complete recovery. Effective care usually involves a multidisciplinary team of specialists who develop a plan that best suits the needs of the individual and his/her family. Individuals seeking outpatient treatment typically work with a psychotherapist, dietitian, and physician, and may participate in group therapy or a support group. Individuals in need of more intensive treatment may benefit from an inpatient, day treatment or intensive outpatient program before they return to outpatient therapy.
