Our Approach to Care
At Veritas, we know we’re not just treating eating disorders; we’re treating people, and we never lose sight of that. 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.
Family & Community of Support Program
Your family and community are important parts of our multidisciplinary treatment approach and are as critical to your recovery process as our team.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
We’ve chosen to incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy into all aspects of our treatment model because it’s been shown effective at treating not only eating disorders, but other disorders that often accompany them.
Nutrition & Culinary Program
The food part of eating disorder recovery can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. Come join us in our collaborative kitchen and experience food in an entirely new way.
Education & Vocational Program
Starting your recovery journey doesn't have to mean putting your education, your career, or your life on hold. Our programming is designed to meet your needs, whatever they are.
Expressive Art & Movement Therapy
Eating disorders can be noisy, but nonverbal expression can be louder. Whether it be through clay or water colors, charcoal or yoga, we encourage you to let your hands and body guide you along your treatment and recovery journey and back to your voice.
Levels of Care
As a comprehensive healthcare system, Veritas is one of the few eating disorder programs in the nation that’s able to offer a full continuum of care, from inpatient to outpatient. In addition, medical assessment clinics are available to determine each person’s unique needs, including the optimal starting level of care—because starting the right treatment at the right time is the key to lasting recovery.
