Eating Disorders


In 1989, Turning Point of Tampa developed what is now a nationally recognized Eating Disorder Program for Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Food Addiction/Binge Eating Disorder.

Our gentle and caring approach is based on a 12-Step philosophy and is designed to uncover the client’s personal issues in a supportive and encouraging environment. Our highly-qualified and well-trained multi-disciplinary team uses the power of the group setting to address body image, nutrition and menu planning in an individualized manner. Our model is effective for male and female clients dealing with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder.

Our clients meet regularly with their primary therapist to develop an individualized treatment plan with measurable objectives and to address obstacles as they arise. Each client also meets weekly with a nutritionist to develop and monitor a food plan, tailored specifically to their needs.

Eating disorders are progressive, addictive, dangerous and potentially fatal. Turning Point of Tampa encourages the development of healthy eating, balanced exercise, positive body image, and clear, assertive communication skills.
