Eating Disorders…an Addiction?

Leave a comment

Good afternoon! Hope everyone is having a great Friday before the long weekend!
We thought we would share some interesting articles on eating disorders as a form of substance abuse, a topic that has been debated:

Are Eating Disorders a Form of Substance Abuse? by Ella Quittner (from Health.com)

Are Eating Disorders Addictions? by Karen Jasper (from NEDIC‘s article database)
This article presents both sides of the issue: viewing food/eating disorders as a form of addiction vs. problems inherent in seeing this as an addiction.
