  • Specialized treatment tracks address co-morbid medical and mood disorders, including anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, substance abuse, diabetes, gastrointestinal illness and other organ disease. Treatment plans also recognize patient populations like athletes and those requesting a religious component to the treatment experience.In Child and Adolescent Services, patients have the ability to request Christian-oriented clinicians and dietitian; in Adult Services, a Christian-oriented clinician may be available upon request. Eating Recovery Center does not offer a specific Christian treatment track.

  • Comprehensive levels of care allow patients to admit to the program that meets their unique needs; patients are able to test recovery skills in structured, supportive environments prior to stepping down to a level of care with less supervision.
  • Ongoing discharge planning throughout course of treatment to develop individualized aftercare plan.
  • Special attention to transitioning patients to community providers and resources to support sustainable recoveries.
  • Alumni programming to support patients’ recovery progress following discharge from treatment.
