Customer Question
diagnosis of depression and binge...
i need a recommendation for a treatment center for a dual diagnosis of depression and binge eating. I have been under different Dr. care for ten years,and am getting progressively worse. I even went to the Amen Clinic in Virgina for a brain spec in 2007. I am at the point that I only leave the house for Dr. Visits.  Five years ago i was able to get control of my eating and exercise and actually became a working certified trainer. I have battle these conditions all my life with my weight going in 75 pound swings up and down. I have been married 33 years to a recovered alcoholic and believe their are also serious co-dependency issues. I've thought i was smart enough to handle this myself, but am ready for inpatient care- Please help

Hello,

Kym Tolson, LCSW, CS :

thank you for using Justanswer.com

Kym Tolson, LCSW, CS :

I would recommend the Carolina House in North Carolina. They are a comprehensive treatment program for eating disorders and dual diagnosis. Here is a link to their program. http://www.carolinaeatingdisorders.com/

Kym Tolson, LCSW, CS :

In addition, I am wondering if you have attended Al-anon meetings or families anonymous or perhaps CODA meetings (codependents anonymous meetings) To help with the codependency? Regardless, the treatment program above will address all of the issues you mentions.

Kym Tolson, LCSW, CS :

I wish you all the best with this and please let me know if you have further questions.

Kym Tolson, LCSW, CS :

All the best,

lt;p>The Carolina House is not an option because of it's absorbident fee. I have attendeCoda, and Al-anon. Do you have any other suggestons, what is your opinion of Ridgeveiw in Atlanta?</p>

Hello,
I'm sorry it took a while to respond. Ridgeview in Atlanta would be a great option as well. Also, I you may want to consider Remuda Ranch. http://www.remudaranch.com/default.aspx. Also Renfrew in NY, http://www.renfrewcenter.com/

All three of these options are good ones. As far as cost, I don't know if you called Carolina House but they do work with some insurances as does.

I hope these options help.

All the best,
Kym

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!

Are you the Doctor? how does one make an appointment to talk
how does one make an appointment to talk to the doc I have insurance that isnt a problem to pay for this but I have some issues relating to my relationship with my girlfriend I would like to discuss I have a problem with my girlfriend and frankly I am running out of ideas on how to deal with her. I don't want to end my relationship but I am running out of ways to give her positive help or feedback. My Girlfriend is 54 years old and I am 51, she has a history of sexual child abuse by her step father, a failed marriage of 27 years where her husband cheated on her multiple times (7) to be exact. She has anger issues, she suffers from at one time and I am not sure she has stopped from alcoholism and bulimia. I want to help her, I want her to have the good life she deserves to have. When she moved out of her step fathers house on the demand she put out or get out, she lived on the streets she ate very poorly went to school and slept on a park bench. She has been a prostitute at one time early in her life and later on she had sex for money one time. She lives in my home, she pays no rent I provide for her food, shelter, give her money to spend, pay her car insurance her telephone bill. She seems hell bent on causing our relationship problems. Just tonight she called another guy a friend she has never met while talking to me on the phone, telling me to hold on she was almost done talking to me. I try my best to be supportive, I tell her how much I love her and care for her and want to provide for her I love her to death, I want to help. I am here in Japan but I see her not eating properly and I definitely see an issue on the mental health side of the house. We argue over the stupidest of things and I am constantly being reminded of something I said in the past that she seems to not let go of. I am not sure what to do anymore to be honest. To end the relationship would be easy but that doesn't help someone I consider to be my best friend and one day I hope to be my wife.… read more
