Realization Center’s Food Addiction Treatment Program provides education and treatment for those who struggle with and suffer from compulsive overeating, bingeing and purging and restricting. It is the first outpatient program to treat eating disorders as an addiction. We believe eating disorders are an addiction; progressive and potentially fatal which requires a comprehensive treatment approach. True recovery takes place when the biological, psychological and social issues are addressed. Realization Center is committed to provide to the public information that offers options to those who may be suffering from food addiction and not know it.
