Outpatient Therapy

Individuals who struggle with eating disorders often experience co-existing conditions such as anxiety disorders, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, substance abuse, trauma, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 56 percent of people with anorexia nervosa, 94 percent of people with bulimia nervosa, and 78 percent of people with binge eating disorder (BED) struggle with at least one other mental health diagnosis.

Eating disorders and co-occurring mental health illnesses can dangerously exacerbate one another, requiring integrated treatment that targets all conditions. Thrive Sacramento offers various outpatient services for treating eating disorders and co-existing conditions, including:

Frequently Asked Questions

Thrive offers every participant in outpatient treatment an individualized treatment plan. Some clients will benefit from weekly therapy, while others may choose to work with clinicians bi-weekly. For individuals in need of therapy and nutrition support services, clinicians will work together to ensure integrated care.

Nutrition support services with an experienced registered dietitian (RD) are often essential to effective eating disorder treatment and long-term recovery. An RD can assess an eating disorder’s impact on eating habits, movement, and overall health, then provide ongoing nutritional support while helping an individual cultivate a more peaceful relationship with food and the body. This support incorporates guidance to eat in a way that provides adequate energy and includes a wide variety of foods while normalizing eating patterns and challenging the rules and rigidity dictated by an eating disorder. Well-rounded nutrition education is included and can further help each individual better understand the relationship between food and overall health. The ultimate goal of our nutrition support services is to help each individual find a way of fueling and moving their bodies that is authentic, balanced, and sustainable.
