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.
