Eating Recovery Center
), a national eating disorders recovery program providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia and bulimia, today announced the opening of a new outpatient location. Enabling Eating Recovery Center to expand its outpatient recovery services, the new Denver, Colo. office will offer integrated care for eating disorders in a flexible outpatient setting.
“This expansion allows Eating Recovery Center to offer patients a collaborative, team-based approach to outpatient eating disorder treatment,” said Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, CEDS, co-founder and medical director of Eating Recovery Center. “With access to a team of individual and family therapists, dietitians, and medical professionals, patients benefit from a well-rounded treatment experience that can help them achieve sustainable recovery.”
The outpatient clinical team works together to help individuals and families who are new to eating disorder treatment address disordered eating and body image issues before they have the chance to escalate. The clinicians are also committed to helping individuals who have been in a recovery program stay on track as they move into lower levels of care. The services offered include individual and family therapy, dietary counseling, psychiatric medical management, body
image and aftercare eating disorder support groups
), and an evening intensive outpatient program, which begins this month.
The evening intensive outpatient program is an integrated option for individuals who require more structure than individual counseling provides. Participants meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. and take part in individual counseling, group therapy, nutrition education and multifamily therapy. They learn to break patterns that maintain their diseases and integrate sustainable changes into their lives. The timing of the program enables participants to integrate the skills learned in evening sessions into their daily lives.
“Eating disorders are complex conditions and every person’s experience with the disease is different,” explains Weiner. “The evening intensive outpatient program allows us to tailor treatment to the individual needs of each patient and promote successful recovery.”
Eating Recovery Center also operates a licensed behavioral hospital for adults with severe eating disorders, and will open an adolescent treatment facility in the Denver Lowry neighborhood in October 2010. All services are guided by the leadership and clinical expertise of Weiner and Emmett R. Bishop, Jr., MD, CEDS, co-founders of Eating Recovery Center and nationally renowned experts who have separately founded numerous other eating disorder programs
