At Carolina House, located in North Carolina, and also serving South Carolina and surrounding states, clients often come to us at our treatment and rehab center struggling with both eating disorders and additional mental health disorders that are known as co-occurring disorders. We understand the added pain and complexity that can come with co-occurring disorders and we have developed specialized treatment and rehab programs at our center for eating disorders and co-occurring disorders designed to help clients find relief from their symptoms. We aim to provide the best possible care for our clients, and we employ holistic interventions that treat the entire person, not just a set of symptoms. We are committed to giving our clients the best possible chance for recovery, and so we have integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders throughout our programming at all levels of care at our rehab and treatment center for eating disorders and co-occurring disorders.

Individuals may not always realize they are struggling with co-occurring disorders. Depression or anxiety, for example, may weave itself so tightly into a person’s daily life that they are not even aware of its presence. Although people may be aware that they are struggling with eating disorders, they may not know that the numbness, shame, or guilt of depression that can drive them to food for comfort are symptoms of a depressive disorder. Perhaps they feel the safe and calming anxiety relief that comes from eating but do not recognize their symptoms as an anxiety disorder. Regardless of the origin of the co-occurring disorder, fighting against both an eating disorder and a co-occurring disorder can be a painful and frustrating experience. Thankfully, relief from these disorders can be found at professional treatment and rehab centers specializing in eating disorders and co-occurring conditions.

Some people battle multiple mental health diagnoses at the same time. Some common co-occurring disorders among clients who enter treatment and rehab at Carolina House include:

  • Depressive disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Substance use disorders
  • Body dysmorphic disorder
  • Trauma-related concerns
