At Veritas Collaborative, we are passionate about working together to save lives.
That passion is what built Veritas, and every day it inspires our mission to drive an ever higher standard of care in eating disorder treatment.
“What we have been focused on all along is creating access to care for those patients and their families who would otherwise not have anywhere to go. We can help them access the right level of care at the right time.”
“Where were you when I was 13 years old? I could have kicked this illness then.”
Those are the words that inspired the founding of Veritas Collaborative. They were spoken to Veritas founder Stacie McEntyre more than a decade ago by a brilliant 26-year-old graduate student undergoing eating disorder treatment at an adult residential facility.
A year after leaving treatment, that student had passed away, taken by a disorder she was never able to overcome.
That tragic death, one of far too many caused by eating disorders, drove home for Stacie the tremendous gap in eating disorder care that existed for children and adolescents. She, along with her founding partner, Chase Bannister, resolved to create a new treatment model that would tackle eating disorders closer to the age of onset, and with a full continuum of care that included inpatient treatment.
That new model has come to life in Veritas Collaborative, a comprehensive healthcare system dedicated to giving all people with eating disorders—of any age and any gender—access to best-practice care and the tools they need for lasting recovery. Why are we called Veritas Collaborative? Because “veritas” means “truth,” and it reflects our uncompromising commitment to see and treat eating disorders as the serious illnesses they truly are. “Collaborative” speaks to our core belief that together we can be so much more effective against these disorders than any one of us alone.
We welcome you to Veritas Collaborative. We’re proud of the work we’re doing here, and we’re committed to providing exceptional care, and endless support, at every step of your recovery journey.
