Eating Disorders and Chemical Dependency  (5655)

03/18/2014 7:30 PM - 03/18/2014 9:00 PM

“Eating Disorders and Chemical Dependency” will be presented by Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, FACOG, CRMO, ABAM; and Lori Perpich, LLP, MS Clinical Behavioral Psychology; Cognitive Behavior Therapist, EDEN Program Facilitator. People with alcohol/other drug
addictions have a higher prevalence of certain types of eating disorders than the general population. This program will examine the evidence that eating disorders are true biopsychosocial diseases, similar to chemical dependency. The program will define various
eating disorders and their consequences, explore neurobiological and behavioral theories of addiction, describe physiological consequences of eating disorders, discuss screening tools, and provide information on treatment options and resources for people with
eating disorders. This program is part of the FREE Dawn Farm Education Series.
