Telehealth for Eating Disorder Treatment
As eating disorder therapists, we know that seeking support for an eating disorder can seem overwhelming initially. At times, eating disorder recovery can be difficult, and finding a experienced provider who specializes in eating disorders where they live can make it feel impossible. Stigma, accessibility, and balancing multiple appointments are often additional barriers.
Because we believe that everyone should have access to high quality care for an eating disorder, The Catalyst Center now offers online telehealth therapy and psychiatry with Eating Disorder Specialists.
Benefits of Online Telehealth for Eating Disorder Recovery
Increased Accessibility for Eating Disorder Treatment
Telehealth therapy can provide access to specialized eating disorder treatment to individuals who live in Colorado’s mountain and rural communities, or who have mobility issues, that would otherwise be difficult to access.
Some individuals may feel embarrassed or ashamed about seeking help for an eating disorder, and telehealth therapy can provide a more private and confidential treatment experience.
Convenient Eating Disorder Treatment
Telehealth therapy eliminates the need for patients to physically travel to therapy appointments, making it easier for them to access treatment. Telehealth therapy also offers flexibility, where clients can schedule appointments at times that are convenient for them.
Cost Effective Eating Disorder Treatment
Telehealth therapy can be a cost-effective option for individuals who may not have access to eating disorder treatment in their local area. Clients find that telehealth can result in reduced transportation costs, as well as reduced time away from work and school.
