Welcome to Eating Recovery Center, your place for healing and recovery.
Seeking treatment for an eating disorder at a higher level of care takes strength and courage. The team at Eating Recovery Center is here to provide comprehensive support as you move toward lasting recovery.
Dr. Craig Johnson, Eating Recovery Center’s Chief Science Officer, often likens the eating recovery process to building a boat. Not just anyone can build a boat. You need expert insight and support to create a vessel that can withstand the uncertainty of the sea. Once you build your boat, you have to test your vessel’s sea-worthiness outside of the shop. For many, dropping the boat in the water for the first time can be a scary proposition—will it float or sink to the bottom? If the boat doesn’t float, you must identify the leaks and patch them up before making a trip out to sea. When the leaks are fixed and the boat finally floats, you can go anywhere and do anything with the knowledge that your boat is prepared to weather the storms you may encounter.
Much like building a boat, eating disorder recovery requires the expertise and guidance of highly skilled professionals in developing the skills to overcome destructive patterns of behaviors and thoughts. These aptitudes are learned and practiced in the controlled treatment environment, but the true test of sustainable recovery is how well you can use these skills in real-life situations outside of treatment. Opportunities to test your recovery, in addition to the insight of a supportive treatment team when lapses occur, help patients put the necessary recovery safeguards in place and prepare patients to step back into their lives with confidence.
Eating Recovery Center encourages you to leverage the expertise, guidance and insight of its compassionate treatment team to help you create a sturdy vessel that can carry you anywhere, but most importantly, toward lasting recovery.
