We individualize care

We treat the underlying issues associated with the Eating Disorder, not just the symptoms. Each client collaborates with their treatment team to create a treatment plan with unique goals, objectives, assignments and interventions. We provide specific treatment and treatment approaches for the eating disorder, as well as co-occurring disorders, whether you have obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, major depression, multiple addictions, Trauma/PTSD, or other conditions.

Each Client Receives:

  • A minimum of 4 individual therapy sessions weekly
  • 1 individual dietitian session weekly
  • 1 individual psychiatrist session weekly
  • Additional adjunctive therapy sessions for anxiety, chemical dependency, trauma or other needs.

We utilize a comprehensive treatment approach

Our treatment philosophy integrates multiple evidence- based and innovative modalities which are tailored to the unique needs of each client.

We provide care even after you leave Residential Treatment

We have found that most clients need time to practice the skills learned in our Residential Program. To improve success rates, we began a Stepdown Program that allows clients the freedom to practice rebounding from the inevitable slips, while continuing in group and individual therapy. We provide free transitional living to clients participating in this program. Clients receive support from peers, implement relapse prevention plans and continue with customized, individual therapy, all while learning new skills in this life launching program. After discharge, our Alumni Relations staff will then contact you monthly for 6 months post-discharge to follow up and monitor your progress.

We encourage family involvement

We schedule an intensive experiential Family Week every 6-8 weeks. Clients invite all interested family members to 3 days of group and individualized treatment. We also schedule additional individualized family therapy, and couples therapy with spouses, between each Family Week.
