Overeating

Obsession: Grabbing the next meal.

Compulsion: Tasting something delicious.

Bulimia/Anorexia

Obsession: Outward appearance.

Compulsion: Purging or avoiding the next meal.

While Maui Recovery is unable to treat a person currently engaged in an eating disorder, (avoiding foods or purging), we do have clients who suffer from food issues. Many of our clients with food issues most commonly struggle with overeating.

Just like anyone coping with a drug, food, or sex addiction, clients can often relapse. The relapse cycle leaves them feeling frustrated, defeated, and angry. They don’t know what to do and they don’t know where to go. It’s all too easy to fall back into bad habits after brief periods of sobriety. Weight fluctuation isn’t uncommon. Maui Recovery understands the difficulties that come with making a change and we closely work with clients to help them succeed. We can help pinpoint past hardships connected with the relapses and move forward with confidence.
