About Our Eating Disorder Treatment CenterAt Castlewood, we understand that eating disorder symptoms are accompanied by an underlying problem. The symptoms are like a red flag being waved, saying “there is something wrong which I cannot verbalize”. Sometimes the client doesn’t know exactly what the problem is, but there is an underlying problem such as Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety or just feeling overwhelmed by the perceived need for perfectionism and the need to not disappoint others. Some clients have unfinished business with their families that make separation difficult, while others have unresolved grief or trauma.
The Castlewood Difference
Specialized Eating Disorder TreatmentEach of these underlying disorders require a different form of specialized treatment. Castlewood offers a team of specialists, each with different skills, including therapists who have sub-specialties in each of these problem areas. Most importantly, we have dieticians who listen to the client and work with each individual’s unique metabolic requirements. Once a client is able to attain control of symptoms, they are typically stepped-down to one of three lower levels of care, so they can work with specific fears related to interacting with the complexity of modern living. Though we naturally wish to restore our clients to health as rapidly as possible, we do not place a pre-ordained time limit on our residents’ stays. Our mission is not merely to churn out weight-restored clients who look healthy to others, but whose internal wounds, if un-addressed, will readily result in relapse. Experience has taught us that the full measure of health rests on more than a temporary absence of symptoms. We are entirely focused on ensuring a complete and enduring state of wholeness, following whatever path is most appropriate for you. Clients who have not found healing at other treatment centers say this flexibility is what distinguishes Castlewood and allows their recovery efforts to at last succeed.
