Drunkorexia is a term used to describe the behaviour of people when they combine alcohol abuse with eating disorder behaviours in an attempt to control their weight or prevent weight gain from excessive alcohol intake. It is not a medical diagnosis, however, if an individual is showing signs of this behaviour, is it likely they have an eating disorder and addiction to alcohol.



Our team can assess the individual showing signs of this behaviour and decide which psychological treatment is best for them and whether dietetic intervention is also appropriate.

To find out more about how we can help please contact us.


What are the signs and symptoms of drunkorexia?


A sufferer of Drunkorexiamay drink lots of alcohol and then starve themselves of food as a compensatory method to control their weight. They may even binge eat on foods then use compensatory methods to rid them of calories such as laxatives, self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise or diuretics. If someone is showing signs of this destructive behaviour, an holistic treatment package in an outpatient setting can help them recover.
