Eating disorders (ED) and substance use disorders (SUD) frequently co-occur but are rarely treated in a comprehensive integrated manner. This chapter elucidates the complex relationship between ED and SUD to help the treating professional create an integrated treatment plan that addresses both disorders and any other co-occurring conditions. Evidence-based treatments for each disorder are discussed, and recommendations on how to take “best practices” from both fields to formulate a treatment plan that addresses the specific needs of the patient are presented. The chapter includes case examples that demonstrate the importance of understanding the adaptive function of both disorders when developing an effective intervention.
