The Intersection of Eating Disorders and Substance Use Disorders: A Therapeutic and Nutrition Perspective Carrie Schimmelpfennig MS, RD, CEDRD and Elissa Berlinger, LCSW

by Carrie Schimmelpfennig MS, RD, CEDRD and Elissa Berlinger, LCSW

Description of event by Carrie and Elissa:

Eating disorders and substance use disorders are common comorbidities, however finding comprehensive treatment can be a challenge. This presentation will explore how we can better serve these clients through integrative therapeutic and nutrition interventions. Interventions do look different for each individual case, however there are often some common themes. We will provide insight into what these interventions look like; inpatient vs outpatient, how nutrition therapy can be utilized through more structured meal plans as well as intuitive eating, and how therapy can be utilized when someone is actively engaging in substance use and eating disorder behavior.

Learning objectives:

1. Identify the frequency and most commonly seen co-occurrence of substance use disorders and eating disorders and the importance of a team approach involving nutrition and therapy

2. Identify shared dietary behaviors between substance use disorders and eating disorders

3. Identify nutritional interventions for clients with substance use disorders and eating disorders inpatient vs. outpatient
