Eating Recovery Center Opening New Residential Treatment Facility in Bellevue, WA in Spring 2014
In an effort to increase access to residential eating disorders treatment in the Northwest, Eating Recovery Center has partnered with The Moore Center to expand its 24-hour treatment program for male and female adults and adolescents. Opening in Spring 2014, Eating Recovery Center of Washington will be a 24-bed Residential program located in close proximity to Eating Recovery Center of Washington on the Overlake Hospital Medical Campus in Bellevue, WA. Eating Recovery Center of Washington's program will mirror Eating Recovery Center’s Residential programs for adults and adolescents in Denver, Colorado, which were created and are overseen by internationally recognized eating disorders treatment experts Drs. Kenneth Weiner, Craig Johnson, Emmett Bishop and Ovidio Bermudez. The Moore Center’s medical and clinical leadership will collaborate with Eating Recovery Center’s experts to ensure effective delivery of Eating Recovery Center’s evidence-based treatment philosophies, processes and interventions in a 24-hour treatment environment. Emphasis on continuity of care between Residential and Partial Hospitalization levels of care is critical for sustainability of recovery. The Moore Center’s Partial Hospitalization Programs for adults and adolescents offer a step-down level of care through 11 hours of treatment 7 days per week, as well as opportunities to practice recovery outside of the controlled treatment environment during evenings at home or in peer- or family-supported apartment communities. By offering a full day of programming every day of the week, The Moore Center’s PHP supports patients through all meals and snacks and provides ample structure and containment to maintain the symptom interruption and/or weight restoration achieved in the 24-hour treatment environment.
