Eating Disorder Treatment Research

Staying in Touch with the Latest Science of the Field

The medical and clinical leadership team at Eating Recovery Center is committed to staying in touch with the science of the field and incorporating evidence-based interventions into the treatment philosophy.

In addition, the team itself has driven scientific inquiry into these illnesses and continues to be involved in eating disorders research. As a result of this early and consistent exposure to the latest emerging treatment modalities, Eating Recovery Center’s expert treatment team has the advantage of knowing the evidence base before it goes to print, and integrating proven approaches into the spectrum of care as soon as possible to support positive treatment outcomes.
