Survey Results – The Positive Effects of Residential Treatment For Eating Disorders Are Minimal!

Eating Disorders Survey

In analyzing the current results from my survey regarding the effects residential treatment has had on individuals taking the survey, only 16% acknowledged that residential treatment had a positive impact on their disorder. Over half of the respondents said that minimal changes resulted from residential treatment, and that, “my relationship with food did not improve during or after treatment and I still have the same symptoms.” Finally, a whopping 70% (combining the last four categories) stated that their eating disorder either worsened or that they developed another eating disorder after receiving residential treatment!

If you have not yet taken the survey please do!     

*These results are based upon 260 responses.

I don’t know of many people who actually enjoy the mundane task of going grocery shopping but for those who suffer from an eating disorder it can be an absolute nightmare. For them going to the grocery can be time consuming, mentally exhausting and costly.  Check the results we collected from Dr. Norton’s Online Survey concerning grocery shopping.

  • 75.2%  debate whether or not to purchase each particular item
  • 44.4% find themselves fantasizing about binging on certain foods while grocery shopping
  • 30.1% spend more than they can afford on food

These statistics, which are from a sample of over 125 respondents, are good examples of why Dr. Norton provides the service of shopping coach.
