Recovery & Support for Eating Disorders in Adults

Recovery from an eating disorder can be challenging. For many people, managing the psychological symptoms is a long-term endeavor. With treatment, however, a person can adopt healthier eating habits and reverse many of the serious complications that result from eating disorders.

NYU Langone specialists also offer support services to help adults recover from eating disorders.

Medical Management

Our experts make it a priority to keep your primary care physician informed about your progress toward recovery. They also monitor your nutrition and weight to ensure that your dietary needs are being met.

Our psychiatrists provide medication management for people taking medications, such as antidepressants, to ensure proper dosing with minimal side effects.

Ongoing Psychological Care

NYU Langone experts offer ongoing care for people with eating disorders—including psychotherapy and behavioral therapy, as needed—to maintain progress gained from treatment and to prevent relapse.

Unhealthy eating behaviors often serve as coping mechanisms for people with eating disorders. People in recovery may need new strategies and additional support to manage life challenges. Ongoing treatment is offered to help you navigate the path to a healthier life.
