MISSION STATEMENT

EDCare is committed to empowering individuals suffering with eating disorders to make healthy, long-lasting changes to experience the success of recovery. Matching the skills, passion, and excellence of the interdisciplinary team with the specific needs of each patient, we strive to create an environment where both patients and staff are able to celebrate the success of eating disorder recovery.  EDCare is committed to creating an inclusive and equal environment for all. This includes embracing diversity of race, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and all body shapes and sizes.

Leading Evidence-Based Treatment through a Compassionate Approach

We offer patients, their families, and health care professionals over 15 years of eating disorder treatment experience. We understand the recovery journey can be difficult and scary, and know that the right support can bring success. We continuously remind our patients of their worthiness, empower them to begin to let go of the eating disorder identity, and connect with their authentic selves. We are dedicated to helping them experience the success of long-lasting recovery.

“We offer a safe environment where individuals can let down their walls and open themselves up to the tools and support they need.”

A Unique Empowerment-Based Treatment Approach

Eating disorders are complicated and challenging illnesses that require consistent and permanent lifestyle changes. Our treatment programs in Denver, Colorado SpringsKansas City and Lincoln. are unique in their empowerment-based approach. The backbone of our bio-psycho-social-spiritual treatment approach is based on five core concepts we call CAMSA®: Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, Sense of Self, and Action. This individualized treatment program is proven to empower patients to regain their health.

EDCare employs over 80 team members across its three locations. Matching the skills, passion and excellence of our experienced interdisciplinary team with the specific needs of each patient, we provide treatment focused on healing the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. We offer a safe environment where individuals can let down their walls and open themselves up to the tools and support they need.
