Eating Recovery Center Milwaukee

Located in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, just west of Milwaukee, ERC Milwaukee serves medically-stable adults, adolescents and children with eating disorders.

Our eating disorders program provides evidence-based treatment for all types of eating disorders, including ARFID and Binge Eating Disorder. This facility is the first in the state to offer a seven-day-a-week Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for adults, enabling patients to eat three meals every day with their treatment team and offering ample opportunities to practice new skills in a safe, healing environment.

We also offer a four-day-a-week Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and comprehensive outpatient services for children and adolescents (ages 10-17) and adults. 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 is available.

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.

Life at Eating Recovery Center Milwaukee

Patients and Families at ERC Milwaukee will work closely with a compassionate team of providers including board certified physicians/psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed therapists, registered dietitians and additional experts in eating disorders.

Individualized eating disorder treatment plans, evidence-based interventions, medical support, family involvement and discharge planning are fundamental to the ERC treatment approach in an effort to help patients and families experience the freedom of healing and recovery.

  • Eating Recovery Center Milwaukee is a welcoming, affirming facility and we serve patients of all gender identities.
  • A multidisciplinary eating disorder treatment team of professionals oversees all levels of care, including Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient.
  • Every individual at all levels of care has access to Psychiatry Consultation and Medical Management, Individual Therapy, Group Therapies, Family Therapy and Nutritional Counseling. Specific types of treatment are determined by individual needs and the treatment planning process.
  • Collaboration with family and support team members will be emphasized for all patients. In addition to family therapy, we offer a Virtual Family & Friends series for both adults and children and adolescents: providing families and support systems with education and skills development.
  • Our Wisconsin teammates works closely with Denver-based Eating Recovery Center, an international center, to provide a seamless transition to a higher level of care (Inpatient and Residential programs) if needed.
  • A clinician-led team provides ongoing support for patients who have transitioned to outpatient care through alumni events, free support groups, social recovery communities and resources for patients and caregivers.

Eating Disorder Programs at ERC Milwaukee

  • ERC Wisconsin treats adults (ages 18 and older), adolescents and children (ages 10 and older) with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, ARFID and other unspecified eating disorders and general body image disturbances.
  • Two levels of care are available locally to support each individual at whatever stage of recovery they may be in and whatever their individual treatment needs may be. Frequent communication and coordination with local outpatient community providers as well as our colleagues in ERC inpatient and residential programs nationwide ensures continuity of care and positive outcomes.

    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.

  • Travel


    For our out-of-town patients and families, we offer free Travel Concierge Services. Our Eating Recovery Center Concierge Services Representative is available to assist you with a wide variety of needs before and during treatment, including travel arrangements, booking accommodations and help locating local services, such as shopping, dining and much more.
