Trauma & PTSD Eating Disorders | Treatment Centers | Alsana

Treating trauma

If trauma is the loss of boundaries, autonomy, and control, then disordered eating is seen as a way to reclaim a sense of control-whether consciously or subconsciously- with the added appeal of numbing what is too painful to acknowledge. But while an eating disorder may enable someone to survive, it will never allow someone to thrive. Therefore, in order for eating disorder treatment to be effective, we know we must address the impact of trauma simultaneously.
