All Levels of Care for Adults, Adolescents & Children

The levels of care at Eating Recovery Center include Inpatient, Residential, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient levels of care. We also offer virtual care for patients who are eligible. ERC is the nation's only health care system dedicated to the treatment of eating disorders at all levels of care.

Each treatment program represents a direct-admit level of care, as well as a step-down level of care as patients move along the continuum of care toward recovery. As patients step down to lower levels of care offering more autonomy, they have meaningful opportunities to practice skills and “test” recovery while still a part of the controlled, supportive eating disorder treatment environment. One of the primary ways we work to help our patients recovery is by teaching skills based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Our experienced treatment teams help patients identify and address weaknesses in their recovery to prepare them for success at the next level of care and support sustainable recoveries following discharge.

Treatment Teams

Behavioral health disorders like eating disorders are complex illnesses that require a multidisciplinary treatment team. Our treatment teams consist of a psychiatrist, family clinician, dietitian, nurse, case manager, alumni coordinator and other related patient support staff. A full-time internal medicine physician is also available to all our patients. 

For child and adolescent patients, we also provide educational specialists to help students continue with their education during treatment.
