Eating Recovery Center In The News: DenverPost.com

Another center to treat children and teens with eating disorders has opened in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood. The Eating Recovery Center in Lowry will offer an 11-hour-per-day treatment program for girls and boys ages 10 through 17. The expansion of the privately owned center was a result of increased demand.
Hospitalizations for eating disorders increased by 119 percent for children younger than 12 from 1999 to 2006 in this country, according to a study from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The “partial-hospitalization” option, meaning children spend their days at the center but go home at night, includes family therapy and staff-supported meals. Family meals are also part of the weekly schedule. Near downtown Denver, the Eating Recovery Center has round-the-clock programs for adults and adolescents, as well as partial-hospitalization programs. The downtown center, which resembles a spa with its jet tubs, yoga and massage, first opened in Denver in 2008.
