Establishing an Outpatient Eating Disorders Treatment Team
When struggling with an eating disorder, one of the hardest things to do is establish an outpatient team. An outpatient team typically consists of a therapist, physician, dietitian (sometimes referred to as nutritionist or nutrition therapist), and psychiatrist.
If you live in Massachusetts, MEDA is the best resource for those struggling with an eating disorder (either yourself, a friend, a family member). MEDA stands for the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association. And their mission is to prevent the continuing spread of eating disorders through educational awareness and early detection. MEDA’s expert staff provides education sessions, support groups, and assists individuals find outpatient treatment they need. MEDA serves as a support network and resource for clients, loved ones, clinicians, educators and the general public.
