Lasting Recovery

“My journey at Eating Recovery Center was one that I will never forget nor will I take it for granted. Upon admission, I felt hopeless, lost in my personal life, and confused of what to do next.

“Eating Recovery Center was on the ball with making sure my client’s outpatient team was in the loop during treatment and especially just prior to discharge. My description of Eating Recovery Center: thorough, professional, cutting-edge, holistic, dedicated to relapse prevention and 100% cooperative with the outpatient team. I will be sending patients here again and again and again!”

Allison C., Eating Disorders Professional

“I am impressed and encouraged by Eating Recovery Center. Knowing that I can recommend this facility to my patients and their families with full confidence makes this difficult situation much more tolerable. Thank you for your forward-thinking program based in both knowledge and evidence.”

Pam K., Nutritionist

“My daughter’s team at Eating Recovery Center worked impeccably together to serve her recovery. They were innovative, focused, kind, steadfast and highly attuned to my daughter. She received not only healing that was life saving but education this is foundational for positive entry into young adulthood.”

Melissa M., parent of patient

“It is so helpful to not have to grope around in the dark with so many of the issues of a complicated disease that threatens the life and well being of those you hold most dear to your heart. Family Days gives me knowledge that serves as a tool to not only help us as parents, but to help us better support our loved ones.”

Beverly K., parent of patient

“The programs, but more importantly, the people at ERC helped me to see that I do indeed deserve to be happy and can be happy. They loved me when I felt unlovable. They cared for me until I could start to care for myself again. They gently but firmly challenged me, and most of all, they had faith in me that I could succeed in this fight. For that I will always be more than grateful.”

Kelli E., former patient
