Eating Disorders are complex illnesses causing changes to both the brain and the body. For this reason, in the majority of cases, there is often the need for a specialized treatment team of professionals. The team may include a primary care physician, an individual therapist, a nutritionist/dietitian, a psychiatrist, and a family therapist. It is imperative that the treatment team be collaborative to best serve the individual living with an eating disorder. Ideally, all members of the treatment team should specialize in treating eating disorders, and communication is key.
