Recovery from an eating disorder is not easy. Engaging in intensive outpatient eating disorder treatment at Crossroads Maine gives women a fighting chance to achieve lifelong recovery. In our comfortable and caring treatment center, women continue to build life skills and essential coping methods to create a healthy, happy lifestyle. We use gender-responsive models, as we know that women do not always have the same struggles as men do. Here, they are engaged in a program that fits their unique needs. The goal is to create a safe and comfortable environment to focus on restoration. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach because no two women or situations are the same. If you’re seeking treatment options for binge eating disorder, please reach out to Crossroads Maine today by calling 877.978.1667.
The Crossroads Maine Eating Disorder Treatment Approach
We use a multi-disciplinary approach to treat binge eating disorder and any other co-occurring conditions. We will create a customized treatment plan that addresses each person’s unique needs, including:
- Physical health: We assess vital signs and nutrition levels as well as the use of substances and the presence of any medical or physiological conditions.
- Emotional health: We evaluate the individual’s history of stress, traumatic events, relationships, and personal self-esteem.
- Mental health: We test for any accompanying psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
- Spiritual health: We work with individuals on their mind-body-spirit connection, mindfulness practices, and reconnecting with self and others.
Our ultimate goal is to treat the whole person for long-term, sustainable recovery. Medical and mental health conditions can significantly complicate and perpetuate a binge eating disorder, and it’s essential to consider every factor influencing a person’s ability to heal. Treatment can include a mix of individual therapy, group therapy, and family involvement, as well as experiential therapies such as yoga, equine, and acupuncture.
Treatment Options at Crossroads Maine
Crossroads Maine also offers an intensive outpatient treatment program for eating disorders in addition to the residential treatment option. This program is ideal for women who are medically stable but still require clinical support and structure to maintain their recovery. Groups meet Monday through Friday for three hours per day and work closely with master-level clinicians and dietitians.
Like the residential program, it provides women with the support they need to manage eating disorders in a structured manner. They engage in medical nutrition therapy and group sessions using DBT, CBT, and ACT approaches. Furthermore, they can continue building bonds with other women in the program in a safe space. Here, they can explore any obstacles they have faced and celebrate achievements.
To help build confidence and healthy relationships with food, we ask our ladies to prepare and bring their own lunch to eat with the group. The clinician and dietician will review the meal and ensure that it aligns with the individual needs and meal plan, and then they eat together and discuss ongoing recovery strategies.
Counseling is an integral part of recovery, and Crossroads Maine offers individual and group counseling sessions. Individual counseling allows clients to focus more closely on personal issues they may be struggling with that are not fully explored in a group setting. Group counseling brings a group together to share and learn from one another as they grow in their recovery and develop strategies to prevent relapse.

Both addiction and eating disorders are chronic diseases that can result in high relapse rates without proper treatment. This means creating a space where women can engage in therapy and programs that enhance their understanding of how these two conditions affect one another and their recovery. It means treating women as a whole by addressing underlying issues and supporting holistic healing.
