Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating and Bulimia

The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health offers specialized Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for binge eating and bulimia in Westport. Our treatment plans include a variety of psychotherapies, recovery techniques, and self-care methods to help patients effectively cope with urges to binge.

In a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment, you will gain the toolkit to effectively manage your condition and achieve long-term recovery.

Combining DBT and mindfulness-based psychotherapies and other relaxation techniques, you will learn to experience and understand unpleasant thoughts and emotions, fully and without judgment, and to develop effective coping strategies.

People with eating disorders (EDs) suffer from emotional dysregulation, an emotional response characterized by poorly modulated emotional responses to stimuli. DBT and mindfulness therapies prove to be effective in helping people suffering from ED cope better.

With our support and guidance, your DBT and mindfulness treatment can be invaluable tools toward long-term recovery.

How Our DBT Program Works

The DBT Skills Program for Binge Eating and Bulimia is a 26-week group-only program designed for adults coping with binge or binge-purge behaviors. This program is comprehensive, and does not require a separate individual therapy component.

The group instructs clients in the core DBT skills: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance, and Interpersonal Effectiveness, with a focus on mindful eating and a dialectical approach to food, exercise, and body image.

This is an evidence-based protocol, proven to be effective in reducing or eliminating binge eating and binge/purging. Clients will learn to identify and understand issues underlying problematic eating behaviors, and gain a proven toolkit with which to cope with the disorder more effectively.

The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Health has a highly-trained and experienced DBT team committed to teaching healthy coping skills and mindfulness techniques that are indispensable in the treatment of binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.

Regain your life and freedom from binge eating and bulimia with the help of our dedicated DBT team.
