    Eating Disorder Care for Every Age and Every Stage

    Our RTP facility specializes in exceptional age-appropriate care for people of all ages with eating disorders of all types. We have meticulously designed our 24/7 inpatient and residential programs to cater specifically to the needs of children, adolescents, and adults, understanding that each age group faces unique challenges on their path to recovery. With a personalized approach, we ensure you receive the highest level of support and expertise during your inpatient or residential treatment stay.

    Children and Adolescents

    • Age-appropriate multidisciplinary care: Adolescence is a critical time for physical, emotional, and mental development. Our tailored treatment plans for children and adolescents are designed with this in mind. We focus on promoting healthy growth, strong bones, and brain development, while also addressing the behavioral and psychological challenges of eating disorders. Our comprehensive approach incorporates evidence-based therapies such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and family-based treatment (FBT).

      In addition, our program integrates eating disorder-specific psychiatric, medical, and nutritional rehabilitation. Our culinary and nutritional programming is led by chefs and dietitians, and we also provide expressive art and movement therapy as part of our holistic approach to treatment.

    • Family involvement: Family involvement is the cornerstone of successful eating disorder recovery, especially for children and teens. Our inpatient and residential programs integrate family therapy and caregiver education to provide essential support and understanding. By creating a strong alliance between the family and our team, we empower your loved one to find their way back to health.

      • Academic support: Veritas offers tailored academic support to promote the educational pursuits of child and adolescent patients. Our RTP-Durham location collaborates with the Durham School District to provide grant-funded hospital education programs, ensuring patients in our 24/7 intensive programs receive necessary academic support.

      Adults

      Our adult program at our RTP-Durham, NC location provides specialized inpatient treatment for individuals 18 and older struggling with eating disorders.

      • Care for where you are: Whether you have been struggling with an eating disorder for years or have recently received a diagnosis, our adult program is meant to address your unique needs.

      • Support for complex psychological issues: Many adults struggle with complex factors such as trauma, co-occurring mental health conditions, or longstanding behavioral patterns. Our experienced team offers targeted support and evidence-based therapies to address the root causes of your eating disorder and set you on the path to long-term healing.

      • Consideration of your unique life stage: Adults face significant challenges in various areas of their lives, such as career, relationships, and identity. An eating disorder can impact these crucial aspects of adulthood. Our holistic approach to care takes into account how your eating disorder intersects with your career goals, personal relationships, and overall sense of self.

      Regardless of age, our goal is to provide a compassionate and supportive environment where individuals can find solace, understanding, and the path to lasting recovery.
