We focus on helping young adults build healthy relationships with food and eliminate harmful behaviors. From body dysmorphia and anorexia to binge eating disorder and exercise compulsion, we provide expert treatment for all forms of disordered eating with registered dietitians and specialized therapists on staff.
Eating Disorder Treatment At The Dorm:
Individualized Approach, Robust Treatment
Treating eating disorders is a complex process that is unique to each client and their current relationship with food and their body. We offer individualized, affirming and interdisciplinary care grounded in our nutrition philosophy framework. Every client we support receives individual nutrition counseling services with a registered dietitian as well as individual therapy sessions with a clinical eating disorder specialist.
How It Works
Our dietitians and therapists collaborate with outside providers and coordinate off-site lab testing if needed. Individual support can also include supported grocery shopping trips, meal planning and exposure as one-on-one meal support sessions. For partial residential clients, care can include apartment checks to monitor groceries and to check for items that are indicated as therapy-interfering or unsafe by the treatment team (scales, mirrors, diet foods, diet pills, laxatives, etc).
Who We Treat
We help clients struggling with conditions such as:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Body Dysmorphia
- Exercise Bulimia
- Other disordered eating behaviors
Upon admission, all clients are assessed for nutrition-related needs by a registered dietitian, including disordered eating behaviors and eating disorders. This can include the utilization of the EDE-Q questionnaire if indicated. Group and individual recommendations are provided for each client and will be adapted as clients progress through our program.
