Child and Adolescent Treatment at Eating Recovery Center

“If you suspect your child has an eating disorder, trust your instincts—parents often know if something is wrong. Educate yourself through research or talk to medical and mental health professionals, and identify your support system. Don’t let your child’s eating disorder isolate you, don’t dwell on the past and don’t lose hope. Identify what you want to work towards for your family, and take committed action toward that end.”
-Elizabeth Easton, PsyD
Clinical Director of Child and Adolescent Services

Testimonials

“ERC offers a complete program by utilizing a variety of services: inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and residential. I am impressed by the treatment given to eating disorder clients that includes tracking “temperament” and “character.” DBT seems to leave out many factors including self-directedness. After hearing Dr. Bishop speak [about ERC treatment philosophies], I am motivated to learn more about ACT. “
