At Casa Capri, we understand that food can be just as addictive as a drug. 


Binge eating disorder (BED) is a complex and often misunderstood condition that affects countless individuals. It can impact peoples’ health, derail their futures, and leave them feeling more isolated than ever. At Casa Capri, a leading binge eating disorder treatment in California, we provide women with BED a nurturing environment and comprehensive care tailored to their unique needs. 

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) in Women

Binge-eating is sometimes a way of self-soothing when a person is experiencing overwhelming feelings. BED is characterized by recurrent episodes of consuming large amounts of food, often very quickly and to the point of discomfort. The disorder can profoundly impact womens’ health, both physically and mentally. Physically, it can lead to conditions like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Mentally, it can result in feelings of extreme guilt, shame, and low self-esteem.

Causes of Binge Eating Disorder in Women

It’s crucial to understand that each woman’s experience with BED is unique, and the triggers and causes of BED in women vary from case to case. BED can stem from anything from emotional traumas to societal pressures to hormonal imbalances. Remember: an effective treatment method must address both the individual’s needs and the root causes of their disorder.

Signs and Symptoms of Binge Eating Disorder

Concerned you or a loved one may be suffering from BED? Here are some signs and symptoms that may indicate the disorder:

  • Eating large amounts of food in a short period
  • Feeling out of control during binge episodes
  • Eating when not hungry or past the point of fullness
  • Guilt and shame after binging
  • Secrecy about binging
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Stomach cramps
  • Digestive issues

In many ways, an eating disorder is similar to an addiction, and addiction is a disease that disrupts each area of the human experience—mind, body, spirit. At Casa Capri, it is our philosophy (and evidence shows) that incorporating a curriculum addressing the below eight areas is necessary for successful recovery:


  • Nature
  • Spirituality
  • Recreation

Frequently Asked Questions About Binge Eating Disorder Treatment

Yes, there are specialized centers like Casa Capri, which focus on providing comprehensive care for women with BED and other eating disorders.

The length of treatment depends on the severity of the disorder. Typically, treatment ranges from 1 to 5 months.

Both inpatient and outpatient treatments can be enormously successful. Inpatient binge eating disorder treatment offers a structured environment, while outpatient allows for more flexibility.

Costs will vary based on the duration and intensity of treatment. To make treatment less of a financial stressor, insurance often covers a significant portion of the expenses. Reach out to our admissions team today to learn more about your coverage. 

Finding the right treatment center is key to effective recovery. It’s always suggested to look for centers that offer individualized care, experienced staff, and a comprehensive approach—like Casa Capri.

Long-term recovery rates for individuals with Binge Eating Disorder (BED) vary, with many showing significant improvement through interventions like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication. Maintaining recovery over the long term often involves addressing not only the behavioral aspects of binge eating, but also underlying psychological factors and promoting a positive relationship with food. Lifestyle changes, including adopting healthy eating habits and managing stress, contribute to sustained recovery. Because Casa Capri is a Binge Eating Disorder treatment center, you can call us and discuss this with us confidentially to learn more.

Yes, healthcare providers may incorporate medications into the treatment approach for BED. Medications like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or the stimulant lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse) have demonstrated effectiveness in mitigating binge-eating episodes. Typically, medication is prescribed in conjunction with therapy and lifestyle adjustments to comprehensively target the multifaceted nature of BED.

BED involves recurrent episodes of consuming large amounts of food without compensatory actions, like vomiting or excessive exercise. Specific diagnostic criteria outlined in the DSM-5 distinguish each eating disorder, so it’s important to consult with a professional at a Binge Eating Disorder treatment center (such as ours) to accurately diagnose and tailor treatment for someone with an eating disorder.

Binge eating disorder (BED) is a common eating disorder in the United States, affecting about 2.8% of adults at some point in their lives. It is slightly more prevalent among women than men and often appears in late adolescence or early adulthood.

Co-occurring disorders like anxiety or depression can complicate the treatment and recovery process for binge eating disorder. These conditions can exacerbate symptoms of BED, increase emotional distress, and hinder motivation or adherence to treatment. Addressing these co-occurring issues simultaneously through integrated treatment approaches is crucial for effective management and recovery.

Self-help approaches can be successful in addressing binge eating disorder, especially when guided by structured programs and combined with professional support. These methods often include cognitive-behavioral techniques, self-monitoring practices, and stress management strategies. They are most effective when tailored to an individual’s specific needs and used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may also involve therapy and, in some cases, medication.
