Eating Recovery Center Bethesda
Eating Recovery Center Bethesda
Located in Bethesda, Maryland, ERC Bethesda serves medically stable children, adolescents and adults with eating disorders.
Our eating disorders program provides evidence-based treatment for all types of eating disorders, including ARFID and Binge Eating Disorder. Our PHP program enables patients to eat three meals every day with their treatment team and offers ample opportunities to practice new skills in a safe, healing environment. Additionally, we work with our Baltimore-based ERC centers to provide a comprehensive continuum of care that helps patients easily transition based on needs.
We also offer a three-day-a-week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) led by a multidisciplinary treatment team of compassionate professionals with an emphasis on cognitive behavior therapy (CBT and CBT-E), family-based therapy (FBT), Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), and exposure therapy. Specialized care and treatment for elite athletes, males and individuals with dual diagnosis is available.
With convenient access to nearby communities, attractions, entertainment, business and healthcare – and less than a 30-minute drive from Washington, D.C. – our center supports a social and therapeutic environment to help light the way for patients to find lasting wellness.
