Highly Effective Eating Disorder Treatment in Fort Worth, Texas

Located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas, ERC has partnered with Texas Christian University to bring our nationally recognized eating disorder treatment programming to students directly on-campus.

Conveniently located in Jarvis Hall at the Counseling and Mental Health Center, we offer a three-day-a-week intensive outpatient program (IOP) to support students who struggle with eating disorders. Each session includes 3 hours of programming, taking place during the evening from 5-8 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, in addition to individual and dietary sessions each week.

This program includes experts from Eating Recovery Center – including a therapist and dietitian on staff – who provide individualized care to students, in addition to group therapy among peers with similar challenges and goals. Built upon ERC’s traditional ‘pod’ model, the therapist and dietitian work together to lead peer processing groups and individually treat students with an average length of stay of 8 weeks. Our overall aim is to enable students to continue their classes, campus activities and social life without interruption.

Students can now get the care they need from the nation’s leading eating disorder treatment program, right here on the TCU Campus.*

Life at Eating Recovery Center - Texas Christian University

Pressures of academic life contribute to many college students who experience unhealthy thoughts about weight, body, and their relationships with food. Eating disorders are on the rise, particularly among college students: with a substantial increase from 15 percent to 28 percent between 2013-2021.

Intensive outpatient eating disorder programming empowers students to take ownership of their recovery and become active participants in their lives. There is a strong focus on building rapport among participants, and continued contact to promote trust, security and safety. Programming incorporates various therapeutic modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT), and more – in addition to core recovery principles of mindfulness and connectedness. Programming includes nutritional counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, supported meals and more.

Who We Treat

Conditions We Treat

  • Eating Disorders

    An eating disorder is a treatable mental illness that includes a number of different symptoms, including extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues.

  • Anorexia

    Anorexia nervosa is characterized by an obsessive fear of weight gain and a refusal to maintain a healthy body weight.

  • Atypical Anorexia

    You can’t tell if someone has an eating disorder just by looking at them. See how atypical anorexia affects people in a variety of body shapes and sizes.


    ARFID is a lesser known eating disorder that frequently begins as early as infancy or childhood, but adults can also suffer.

  • Binge Eating Disorder

    Binge eating disorder is characterized by frequent overeating – at least once a week for three months – combined with a lack of control, intense feelings of distress and several other characteristic behaviors.

  • Bulimia

    Bulimia is characterized by patterns of bingeing and purging.

  • Compulsive Overeating

    Compulsive overeating can involve binge eating and weight gain, but it can also involve other behaviors.

  • Diabulimia

    The term diabulimia is used to describe the diagnosis of an eating disorder in an individual with type 1 diabetes. These patients intentionally misuse insulin for weight control.


    Some eating disorders do not meet all of the diagnostic criteria for specific diagnoses like anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.

  • Orthorexia

    Some people go to extremes to “eat clean” at all times. This may lead to a disordered eating pattern known as orthorexia.
