Binge Eating Disorder Intensive Day Treatment Programs


These intensive programs are designed for individuals with Binge Eating Disorder who require more structure and supervision than can be provided in an outpatient setting.

CHEAR offers two unique, cutting-edge and evidence-based programs that utilize and integrate:

  • Brain activity and responses
  • Biological, emotional, social and environmental reasons for binge eating
  • Improving sensitivity to hunger signals
  • Developing inhibition to high-calorie, highly-craved foods
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

The CHEAR Difference

These programs use research based methods to help patients train their brain to reduce binge eating. Patients will learn:

  • How to improve sensitivity to hunger signals
  • How to develop inhibition to foods that are beyond their caloric needs
  • How to resist giving into cravings and urges to binge eat.
  • Skills to reduce binge eating and effectively cope with underlying emotions.
  • Ways to improve your nutrition and physical activity to promote overall health
