Find a Bulimia Treatment Center

Search our bulimia treatment center database

The search box to the right lets you search for bulimia treatment centers across the United States. You can also browse center listings by state, by type of treatment offered, by whether or not they accept insurance, or other characteristics by selecting from the picklists at the right. Both inpatient and outpatient centers are listed in the database. We compiled the list by identifying all bulimia treatment centers in the United States that stated they offered some type of inpatient and/or outpatient care for bulimia nervosa—about 140 centers. Some states, such as Wyoming, have no eating disorder treatment centers, and that’s why no listings come up for some states. We sent detailed questionnaires to every center to gather information about their bulimia treatment philosophies, bulimia treatment approaches, staffing, and the clinical and support services they offer. The amount of information we received from centers varied, so the amount of data shown for each center varies because some centers provided less information than others.

What to consider when searching for a center

Several considerations enter into finding a suitable bulimia treatment setting. Options may be limited by factors such as insurance coverage, location, or ability to pay for bulimia treatment in the absence of insurance. Primary care physicians (family doctor, gynecologist, pediatrician, internal medicine doctor) can often assist in referring patients to appropriate bulimia treatment facilities because they may have experience with various centers or outpatient therapists.

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder in which a person engages in binge eating (eating a lot of food in a short time) followed by some type of behavior to prevent weight gain from the food that was eaten. This behavior can take two forms: self-induced vomiting, misuse of enemas, laxatives, diet pills (called purging) and excessive exercise, fasting, or diabetic omission of insulin (called non-purging). Some people with bulimia nervosa may also starve themselves for periods of time before binge eating again. Bulimia nervosa has important mental, emotional, and physical aspects that require consideration during treatment.
