In brief: Multidisciplinary

A multidisciplinary approach to eating disorders is the most effective.
This should include the assistance of a dietician, primary care physician, psychotherapist, support groups, and a psychiatrist. This is usually most successful when initiated in an inpatient setting, followed by a structured multidisciplinary outpatient program.
