Eating Disorder Treatment

We asked our Clinicians: What do you want the community to know about eating disorders?

Recovery is Possible

Having an eating disorder isn’t a choice you make. It’s a dangerous mental illness. But you don’t have to battle alone.

Seeking eating disorder treatment could save your life or the life of someone you love. And the sooner you get the help you need, the better. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. But there is hope.

Recovery is possible. Eating disorders are treatable.

Our LiveWell Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps you overcome your eating disorder struggles alongside our compassionate, experienced clinicians. And if you’re a family member or in the support network of someone struggling with an eating disorder, we’re here to guide you too.

In our highly-effective treatment program, you’ll experience the most current research-based therapy methods to ensure success. For nearly a decade, we’ve helped people just like you or your loved one face their eating disorders head-on and we’ve walked alongside them toward recovery.
