You can recover from an eating disorder, but it may take time and recovery will be different for everyone.
After being referred to an eating disorder specialist or team of specialists, they'll be responsible for your care.
They should talk to you about any other support you might need, such as for other mental or physical health conditions you have, and include this in your treatment plan.
Treatment will be different depending on the type of eating disorder you have, but will usually involve some kind of talking therapy.
You may also need regular health checks if your eating disorder is having an impact on your physical health.
It may also involve working through a guided self-help programme if you have bulimia or binge eating disorder.
Most people will be offered individual therapy, but those with binge eating disorder may be offered group therapy.
