What Equip treatment looks like for real patients
Ava is a 16-year-old girl with bulimia. Her parents didn’t recognize how serious her problem was, but agreed to begin treatment with Equip when Ava asked.
Stuck in eating disorder behaviorsWhen Ava first started with Equip, she was binging, then restricting food and doing intense exercise to make up for it. She didn’t have any coping skills she could use to stop.
Getting alignedAva’s parents initially resisted treatment, but after working with the team, they became passionate advocates and better understood their own relationships to food, body, and emotions.
Opening upAs Ava progressed through her therapy and mentorship sessions, she began to open up, and was able to share with her parents that she’d been struggling with depression.
36-50%of patients with bulimia also experience depression
Developing skillsAfter a short time in treatment, Ava began to learn coping skills and put them to use in daily life, which instilled confidence in both her and her parents.
No more symptomsAt the beginning of treatment, Ava had a whole host of eating disorder-related physical complaints, such as heartburn. Within a few months, all of them had disappeared.
