Our Approach to Care
At Veritas we’re not just treating eating disorders, we’re treating people.
Our treatment model is designed to meet you wherever you are in your recovery journey, at whatever stage of life, and to help you and your community of support develop the skills needed for lasting recovery.
We follow clinical best practices at all levels of care, and we consistently “treat to outcomes,” which simply means that our therapies, and the manner in which we provide them, have been shown to increase your likelihood of a positive outcome. Our belief in the power of collaboration is evident in the way we work, bringing together a multidisciplinary team of highly skilled and dedicated professionals to address the medical, nutritional, and behavioral issues caused by eating disorders.
We personalize each care plan to take into account not only the type and severity of your eating disorder, but also your personality, your response to past treatment, your family and social situation, and any special demands life may be placing on you (school, career, children).
We work to remove any barriers—practical, emotional, or financial—that may come between you and the treatment you need. We also anticipate and address the challenges you’re likely to face when you transition out of treatment and back to your daily life.
While every situation and care plan is different, our goal is always the same: to give you and your loved ones the most effective treatment possible, and the greatest chance of success.
Food and Nutrition Policy
At Veritas Collaborative we foster a Can Eat Culture, believing that individuals can positively influence their eating disorder behavior by engaging in staff facilitated therapeutic supported meals and snacks. Veritas Collaborative endorses the inclusiveness of all foods and values the absence of food judgment. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions and utilize the expertise of our Registered Dietitians to assess the origins of an individual’s dietary preferences. We understand the complex role food plays and the diverse eating situations life presents. As such, we aim to provide nutrition and food-related experiences, education, counsel, and skills that enable an individual’s journey to a more mindful, flexible, balanced, autonomous, and sustainable relationship with food. We acknowledge the varying nutritional profiles of food; the individualized nutritional need of each person; and the unique food experience each person has. We strive to support individualization and personal choice that enables adequate nourishment and promotes recovery, which we understand may look different throughout the recovery journey. Ultimately a Can Eat Culture paradigm supports overall health and well-being, with a sense of freedom and true choice in finding ways to purchase, prepare and consume food.
