Eating Recovery Center | Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center Baltimore

Located in Towson, Maryland, just north of Baltimore, our ERC and Pathlight Baltimore serves medically-stable adults, adolescents, and children with eating disorders as well as adults with primary mood and anxiety disorders.

Our eating disorders program provides evidence-based treatment for all types of eating disorders, including ARFID and Binge Eating Disorder. This facility offers a seven-day-a-week Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), a four-day-a-week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and comprehensive outpatient services.  These programs are led by a multidisciplinary treatment team of compassionate professionals with an emphasis on cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), family-based treatment (FBT) and exposure therapy.  Specialized care and treatment for elite athletes, males, and individuals with dual diagnosis and substance use is available.

Our mood and anxiety treatment programs in Maryland currently include a three-day-a-week Virtual IOP that provides up to 11 hours of clinical programming each week for adults with mood disorders such as bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder as well as anxiety disorders including general anxiety disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder and  Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD).   

With convenient access to nearby communities, attractions, entertainment, business and healthcare, our facility supports a social and therapeutic environment to help light the way for patients to find lasting wellness.
