Eating Disorder Treatment in Utah

Eating disorders can be debilitating conditions that affect individuals physically, emotionally, and mentally. At Maple Mountain Recovery, we understand the complexity of these disorders and offer a comprehensive treatment program designed to address the unique needs of each patient. Our goal is to guide you towards a healthier relationship with food, your body, and yourself.

Understanding Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are not just about food; they are often a reflection of deeper emotional and psychological struggles. To effectively treat eating disorders, it’s crucial to understand the different types and their underlying causes:

Anorexia Nervosa:

Anorexia is characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted body image. Individuals with anorexia often restrict their food intake severely, leading to dangerous levels of weight loss. It’s important to note that anorexia is not just about food; it’s a way to cope with underlying emotional issues.

Bulimia Nervosa:

Bulimia involves a cycle of binge eating followed by purging behaviors, such as vomiting, excessive exercise, or laxative use. This condition is also deeply rooted in emotional distress and a negative self-image.

Binge-Eating Disorder:

Binge-eating disorder involves recurrent episodes of consuming large amounts of food without compensatory purging behaviors. Feelings of guilt, shame, and loss of control often accompany these episodes.

Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID):

ARFID is a condition where individuals have a limited range of foods they are willing to eat. It is not driven by a desire for weight loss but rather a fear of the consequences of eating certain foods.


Orthorexia is an obsession with healthy eating to an extreme degree. Individuals with orthorexia focus excessively on the quality and purity of their food, which can have negative impacts on their physical and mental health.
