Adult Eating Disorder Treatment at Eating Recovery Center

Eating disorders treatment at Eating Recovery Center for women and men ages 18 and older brings together a highly experienced team of experts to address the physical, psychological and social implications of these illnesses. In addition to medical and nutritional support to address the complications associated with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, therapeutic interventions are used to help patients learn how to create a rich and meaningful life. Patients are supported to closely examine what they value and are given tools to help them take committed action to achieve the lives they want to have.

Adult women and men enter treatment at the appropriate level of care she or he needs. This determination is generally based on medical complications, acuity of the eating disorder symptoms and past treatment history. As patients move along the path of recovery, they can step-down among the levels of care within Eating Recovery Center’s comprehensive service offerings, including Inpatient, Residential, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and general Outpatient programming. Stepping down to levels of care with more autonomy helps patients protect their recovery as they reconnect with their lives outside of treatment by testing their skills while still in an environment of structure and support.

Treatment in Eating Recovery Center’s adult programs are delivered using a Village model, in which the larger community of patients is divided into smaller communities that allow patients to get to know one another better. Within each Village, a small group of patients are assigned a psychiatrist, dietitian, primary therapist, family therapist, and nurse with whom they work, allowing staff to really understand the patient and drill down on their individual progress and goals. In the Village model, patients interact with their primary therapists for both individual and group therapy and also for some supported meals.
