Treatment Goals

Persons with eating disorders frequently have forgotten what it is like to be able to eat normally-without intrusive and overwhelming concerns about weight and food. The Eating Disorders Program addresses psychological, medical & family problems associated with eating disorders.

Family involvement is essential in the treatment plan. The numerous medical and nutritional complications of eating disorders are assessed and treated. Once the patient is in a healthy nutritional state and the eating or activity disorder symptoms are under control, the patient can use the care and support of the treatment program to begin the psychological work necessary to find a new direction and meaning for life.
