McCallum’s compassionate healthcare professionals want every person who comes through our doors to feel at home, so we work together to create the best possible treatment experience.

Common Symptoms of Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
- A sense of lack of control over eating
- Keeping food to eat in secret
- Feeling embarrassed by how much you are eating
- Eating beyond hunger and fullness
Patients who have not been able to stop Binge Eating with outpatient care may benefit from having more structured treatment. Restoration of a regular eating pattern is key to stopping Binge Eating. When Binge Eating subsides, we work on developing other strategies for self-regulation. Partial-hospital may help those who binge eat daily and showing out of control weight gain. Patients who struggle with binge eating and purging behaviors may respond to treatments that target emotion regulation, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, which use cognitive reappraisal techniques, anticipation, mindfulness and exposures.
