Eating Recovery Center Baltimore - 55 Schilling

Located in Hunt Valley, Maryland, ERC Baltimore offers Residential programming for medically stable adults, children and adolescents with complex eating disorders and co-occurring conditions.

This center's 24/7 Residential program provides a much-needed higher level of care on the East Coast, enabling easier access to a conveniently located center. Because this program is geographically proximate to our PHP and IOP programs, patients can efficiently and effectively transition between levels of care.

All ERC programs are led by a multidisciplinary treatment team of compassionate professionals, all of whom have decades of national experience in eating disorder treatment. Treatment teams use evidence-based psychotherapies including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), family-based treatment (FBT) and exposure therapy. Specialized care and treatment for elite athletes, males, and individuals with dual diagnosis is available.

This new location offers free parking, easy access to public transportation and proximity to a variety of hotels and restaurants. Our center supports a social and therapeutic environment to help light the way for patients to find lasting wellness.

    Family and Alumni Support

    Our support for patients and families does not end at the time of discharge—rather, the treatment team carefully develops a personalized discharge plan, and offers several aftercare services and alumni support programs for patients that do not have an established eating disorder treatment team.
