Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
The best place to start is to be evaluated by a psychiatrist who can offer medication to manage the symptoms (many individuals with eating disorders respond well to antidepressants like Prozac.) Next, connect with a counselor. You would want to make sure the counselor and MD specialize in eating disorders, substance abuse, depression and dermatiollomania.
If your insurance covers treatment called intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment, that may also be a good start.
