Colorado Recovery Retreats
AFTERCARE from Eating Disorder Treatment Centers – Inpatient programs can save lives of those with severe eating disorders needing medical interventions, and residential programs can provide meal plan structure and coping skills to break eating disorder behaviors. But what happens when you return home? Aftercare is essential, and Dr. Dorie’s recovery retreats can provide this transitional treatment, with 1-on-1 counseling from Dr. Dorie, who is a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist with 25 years of experience.
ALTERNATIVES to Outpatient Treatment – Outpatient treatment allows you to live in your home environment and maintain commitments such as work or school. You might meet with a counselor on a 1-on-1 basis, and also participate in support groups. For a “higher level of care,” you might be a part of an Intensive Outpatient Group, or Partial Hospitalization Group.

Alcohol Abuse + Eating Disorder = The Deadly Diet
“Drunkorexia” – it’s not a medical term, but literally, this term implies a combination of excessive alcohol consumption (“drunk”) with desire or appetite (“-orexia”). On college campuses, this term means much more than “an appetite to be drunk.” It’s used to describe the behavior of deliberately avoiding food intake and/or exercising excessively before drinking. Drunkorexia is also used to describe the behavior of self-induced vomiting after eating (to empty the stomach of food before drinking alcohol), or purging in the midst of an evening of heavy drinking (to allow for continued alcohol consumption). This is a very dangerous behavior, which can result in severe dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and sudden heart attack – or, an accidental overdose of alcohol, coma and sudden death.
