Unlike most treatment programs, Milestones In Recovery addresses both the emotional issues and “dependency” elements characteristic of most eating disorders. We believe an eating disorder often results in a loss of control with one’s relationship with food and/or “dieting.”
Whether resulting in a pattern of compulsive overeating, repeated episodes of binge eating followed by purging or periods of dieting – or attempts to compensate for over-eating by any number of measures, we’ve come to describe this eating pattern as “food obsession or dependency.”
Yet for others, the compulsion to restrict food intake and avoid weight gain to the point of jeopardizing one’s health is but another form of addiction, namely anorexia. One common thread among all eating disorders, regardless of form appears to be their similarity to other forms of dependency.
Milestones in Recovery began in 1999 to fill a void in the continuum of care offered to folks with an eating disorder – namely a setting and approach to treatment that offered people an opportunity to learn and practice the skills necessary to begin and maintain eating disorder recovery. Milestones seeks to provide a more supportive and structured experience in a less restrictive and real-world setting.
