How to Find an Eating Disorder Treatment Center
There are many ways that you can find an eating disorder treatment center, with the most popular being via the Internet. The speed and efficiency of the Internet allow you to quickly and easily browse through the multitude of information that is available, so that you can find an eating disorder treatment center near you without much hassle on your part.
Directories, such as EdReferral.com are a good place to start. They list treatment centers and clinics by state, and give a brief overview of each centers programs as well as a cotact email address and phone number for most.
One eating disorder treatment center in particular would be that of the Monte Nido treatment center, which has several different residential programs, all of which are located in beautiful serene settings, such as Malibu, California and Eugene, Oregon, which promote tranquility and connection to nature; each program accepts only a small number of clients, which allows for more highly individualized treatment.
One of the most primary reasons in regards to why this treatment center is considered as being so successful is in regards to the fact that all of their staff members are recovered as well. The point of this is basically so that the patients will have someone there who truly understands what they are going through, not just someone who has been trained to act as though they do.
Another good option would be the Eating Disorder Center of Denver, which is committed to the action of empowering individuals who are suffering from an eating disorder to make healthy and long lasting change and also to help them to experience the success and wonderfulness of recovery.
They have a strong team of physicians, clinicians, nurses, experimental arts therapists, family therapists, and dieticians, who all work together in order to meet every patients individual needs and styles, and in matching the skills, passion, and excellence of their inter-disciplinary team with the specific needs of each patient they are able to create an environment where clients and staff are able to work together and celebrate success.
Remember that recovery can take a lot of time but it will be worth it in the end, and so you need to find a center where you will feel comfortable and where you will have someone to help you along every step of the way.
