Education & Help for Loved Ones of Patients

In addition to our comprehensive, personalized treatment programs designed to restore your loved one’s physical, emotional and spiritual health, we offer therapy and programming to help educate, support and care for families of patients in treatment at every stage of the recovery process.

"ERC Insight [Pathlight] saved my life. There's no doubt that I would not be here if not for the care and support I received from the staff through all levels of care. I understand so much more about depression and anxiety and feel much better prepared to manage these conditions in the future."

Treatment for Children and Adolescents

When your child is struggling with an eating disorder or mood and anxiety disorder, their pain is your pain. Maybe you’ve reached out for help, but nothing has seemed to work. We can help guide you and your child on a path to long-lasting change and healing.

    Friends & Family Days

    We know that when someone you love is in recovery, you might feel lost, alone or powerless. At ERC Pathlight, we want to offer you the tools you need to be a strong support for your loved on in recovery. That's why we have developed a suite a hand-picked resources, recorded presentations and events that can help you learn more about your loved one's illness, and how to be a effective part of their recovery. 

    Our live friends and Family Days events are hosted by our clinical leaders, and you'll leave with practical, hands-on knowledge of what you can do during and after treatment to support the person you care about.

    Treatment Teams

    Behavioral health disorders like eating disorders and mood, anxiety and trauma-related disorders are complex illnesses that require a multidisciplinary treatment team. Our treatment teams consist of a psychiatrist, family clinician, dietitian (for eating disorders programs), nurse, case manager, alumni coordinator and other related patient support staff. A full-time internal medicine physician is also available to all our patients.

    "Families are an integral part of eating disorders treatment, not only in helping an individual respond well to treatment, but also go onto lasting recovery."
