Becoming a Patient in the Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program

Michigan Medicine’s Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program takes a family-based (Maudsley) approach to treatment, in which parents play an integral role in helping their child recover. Our team has designed a comprehensive evaluation process in order to determine the most effective, individualized treatment for our patients.


Bulimia is characterized by repeated episodes of binge eating, followed by compensatory behavior in an effort to avoid weight gain. These behaviors occur several times a week on average.  Compensatory behaviors can take the form of self-induced vomiting, using laxatives, or compulsive exercise. Patients with bulimia often feel unable to control their eating.
