Treatment options include, but are not limited to: long term treatment, mindfulness-based treatment, and multiple and single family therapy. Each treatment is successful for its own reasons, but researchers have noted that the best type of treatment for an eating disorder requires a well-built support system (Jewell et al., 2016). Although, despite this effort, the problem among most individuals isn’t the treatment itself...
