Residential Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions that need to be cared for with a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder involve symptoms that can cause significant psychological distress and a great deal of harm to the overall physical wellbeing of those who suffer from these disorders. Therefore, if an individual only receives mental health treatment or medical care for an eating disorder, there is a high likelihood that that person will suffer a relapse and engage in the self-destructive thought processes and behavior patterns that are cornerstone to these mental illnesses.

Harmony Point Treatment Centers, a network of eating disorder treatment providers, offer the comprehensive multidisciplinary care that is needed to help adolescents and adults overcome all types of eating disorders. This care includes effective and innovative programming options that have helped countless individuals successfully recover from eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions and substance use disorders. Among the treatment options available, Harmony Point’s residential treatment services have made the network a leader in caring for those who wish to defeat anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating disorder.

The residential care offered at each of Harmony Point’s centers offers clients the opportunity to step away from the stressors of everyday life and fully immerse themselves in the healing process. Carolina House, located in Durham, North Carolina; Center for Hope of the Sierras, located in Reno, Nevada; and Montecatini, located in Carlsbad, California, all provide unique therapeutic experiences that also allow clients to gain the recovery skills and confidence required to prevent relapse long after completing residential treatment.
