We are here to help.
Throughout the course of treatment at Shoreline, our clinicians are assessing the connection between the eating disorder and co-occurring disorders to determine the best course of treatment. The multidisciplinary team works together to establishing treatment goals to address overlapping symptoms, as well as, symptoms specific to either the eating disorder or co-occurring disorder by utilizing psychological, dietary, and medical interventions as needed.
