Over 30 million people in the United States suffer from some form of eating-related disease, which has the highest mortality rate of any form of mental illness. Too often, little is understood regarding these forms of disorders, including how important it is to identify the underlying causes of these illnesses and how to best approach them for resolution. Sovereign Health's eating disorder program specializes in the treatment of anorexia and bulimia, providing both impatient and outpatient services for adult women. The program offers each patient an individualized plan, encompassing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Patients also participate in individual and group sessions, nutrition and body-image therapy and experiential treatments, such as yoga and equine therapy.
