Eating Recovery Center Chicago - Erie

In early 2014, ERC filled a treatment gap in Illinois by opening the first Downtown Chicago residential 24-hour center to treat adults with mood, anxiety and trauma-related disorders. 

With 30 beds available in our Residential program, we are located in the heart of the city. Our renowned treatment team is very involved from the moment of treatment until time of discharge, and beyond.

Our treatment program provides a comfortable and inclusive residential treatment environment for mood and anxiety patients, integrating evidence-based strategies to guide our patients on a path toward long-lasting mental wellness.
