Eating Disorders List

Very often eating disorders (ED) are caused by trauma or some kind of bad event leading to the need for control, but quite often the common cause of an eating disorder is anxiety, depression or stress. A common cause of being overweight or underweight is by using food as a control method which should always be considered a mental health issue and the underlying conditions need treatment as a co-occuring disorder.

Benidorm, Alicante and surrounding areas have long been crying out for an English speaking but budget rehab addiction treatment center and finally its here.

Alicante is definitely a favorite for many Brits and especially Benidorm so it was always surprising that nobody had ever setup a rehab until a dutch company decided to take the plunge. In the Netherlands the group have many successful rehab addiction clinics and the first thing they did when they came to Spain was hired the best English speaking addiction treatment doctors and nurses to service the clinic.

With decades of experience in treating people with alcohol addiction, drug addiction and other mental health disorders.
It could be said that this Dutch company has expanded into Spain and staffed a clinic with some of the best English speaking Psychiatrists, Psychologists and addiction treatment specialists is something that should be celebrated.

Although the addiction center is a new location it is already becoming known for its success in the Spanish speaking, Dutch Speaking and English speaking addiction industry because when the lesser known treatment centers cant cope with a customer are not having the success they should they call the Alicante addiction treatment staff for help.

How the treatment works in the Alicante rehab center.

The approach is based on the Dutch system which of course everyone knows is one of compassion and tolerance to drug addiction.
Addiction treatment can normally be considered a mental health issue and before a person can recover they need to be fully assessed to see if they have any underlying mental health issues that would cause someone to look for ways to self medicate.

Some of the main causes for bulimia include: Stressful transitions or life changes.

The causes of Bulimia as a disorder are currently not known due to many inconsistencies across different age groups and backgrounds. Some common factors across all demographics are a need for control after traumatic events and after experiencing repeated stressful life transitions. A selection of the main causes include:

    Sexual Trauma is often a contributing cause to Bulimia
