Conditions We Treat

  • Eating Disorders

    An eating disorder is a treatable mental illness that includes a number of different symptoms, including extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues.

  • Anorexia

    Anorexia nervosa is characterized by an obsessive fear of weight gain and a refusal to maintain a healthy body weight.
  • Atypical Anorexia

    You can’t tell if someone has an eating disorder just by looking at them. See how atypical anorexia affects people in a variety of body shapes and sizes.

    ARFID is a lesser known eating disorder that frequently begins as early as infancy or childhood, but adults can also suffer.
  • Binge Eating Disorder

    Binge eating disorder is characterized by frequent overeating – at least once a week for three months – combined with a lack of control, intense feelings of distress and several other characteristic behaviors.
  • Bulimia

    Bulimia is characterized by patterns of bingeing and purging.
  • Compulsive Overeating

    Compulsive overeating can involve binge eating and weight gain, but it can also involve other behaviors.
  • Diabulimia

    The term diabulimia is used to describe the diagnosis of an eating disorder in an individual with type 1 diabetes. These patients intentionally misuse insulin for weight control.

    Some eating disorders do not meet all of the diagnostic criteria for specific diagnoses like anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.

    "Having that validation “You've changed as a person” from your treatment team was so cool to receive."


    Katie's Story

    The most impactful moment at ERC was when I received a high five from my psychiatrist the day after I finally decided to work towards recovery. [My treatment team] sat me down, looked at me, and they said, "Whatever is about to come out of your mouth, I'll believe." And I asked, "What do you mean you'll believe me?" And they looked at me and said, "Your eyes have changed."

    Having the validation that they saw the change before I had even said anything was very encouraging, because the small things should be celebrated.

    "Through ERC’s counsel, I learned that I was never broken and I didn’t need to be fixed."


    Andy's Story

    Just when all hope was gone and I found myself in the basement apartment underneath my "rock bottom"; I made my final attempt at a life worth living. On Feb 22nd, 2016 that final attempt at life led me to the Eating Recovery Center. There I was, almost instantly, able to understand who I was; my pain, my frustration, my hopelessness... and more importantly, they were able to help me understand who I am, and how to proceed forward in my life despite the pain, frustration, and hopelessness I felt.

    Through ERC’s counsel, I learned that I was never broken and I didn’t need to be fixed. Instead, we created a customized roadmap to guide me in life with ways to navigate myself away from repeating my past suffering and by self-understanding and love, move ever forward in the direction of my life values. Without ERC I truly don’t think I'd be alive today; and I'm certain that I would not be loving myself and the life I have now.

    "Recovery was getting to know myself over again because I had forgotten who I was and what I wanted for myself because I was so focused on my disorder behaviors."


    Kate's Story

    Recovery was getting to know myself over again because I had forgotten who I was and what I wanted for myself because I was so focused on my disorder behaviors. It was all I ever thought about all day, every day, waking up, going to bed. Getting to set that aside and let the people at ERC handle that for me was so helpful.

    Once a week, I filled out my menus and that was all I thought about. I didn't have to worry about it. I just filled the menu out, pass it along and had them take care of that, and then I could take care of me, and get to know people and get to know myself and work with my team, because the core of the issue had nothing to do with food.
