Residential Treatment for Eating Disorders

Around-the-clock care and support.

Call 855-875-5812 to get help with an eating disorder.

Residential care is structured, around-the-clock treatment that comprises both individual and group therapies. What differentiates it from standard residential care is that nursing staff are available onsite, 24/7. This level of care is suitable for individuals who are medically stable but in need of 24-hour behavioral and medical supervision.

What Is Residential Eating Disorder Treatment?

Residential eating disorder treatment is a specialized form of treatment for individuals who are struggling with eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge eating disorder. At Veritas Collaborative, residential treatment involves a comprehensive and immersive approach to address the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of the eating disorder.

In residential treatment at Veritas Collaborative, individuals live at a specialized facility designed to provide a supportive and therapeutic environment. These facilities are staffed by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, dietitians, nurses, and therapists, who work together to develop and implement an individualized treatment plan.

The treatment in a residential setting typically involves a combination of medical care, nutritional counseling, individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. At Veritas Collaborative, the aim of residential eating disorder treatment is to address the underlying factors contributing to the eating disorder, promote healthier eating behaviors, establish a stable weight, and support overall psychological well-being.

The residential setting offers round-the-clock supervision and support to ensure safety, monitor progress, and prevent relapse. It provides a structured routine, including regular mealtimes, therapeutic activities, and supervised exercise, to help individuals develop healthier habits and coping mechanisms.

The duration of residential treatment can vary depending on the severity of the eating disorder and the individual’s progress. It may range from a few weeks to several months. After completing residential treatment, individuals may transition to outpatient or intensive outpatient programs to continue their recovery journey.

Overall, residential eating disorder treatment at Veritas Collaborative offers a highly supportive and intensive approach to help individuals overcome their eating disorders and work towards long-term recovery. It provides a safe and nurturing environment for individuals to develop a healthier relationship with food, their bodies, and themselves.
