Recovery from an eating disorder can be a life-long focus. Patients who have completed one of our more intensive treatments usually attend our outpatient treatment program. Whether a patient has been treated at EDCare in the past, or simply needs support to continue on a personal recovery path, help is available through our Outpatient and Aftercare services.
EDCare strengthens the patient’s experiences with other treatment providers with ongoing and personal connections with our primary therapists, dietitians and board-certified psychiatrists, including:
- Individual, family and couples therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Group therapy (aftercare, DBT, body image and family groups)
- A free support group sponsored by ANAD (National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders)
- Psychiatric evaluation and medication management
- Gastric bypass assessments and aftercare groups
- Nutritional counseling
There are substantial benefits in connecting with others and getting support via a shared experience. EDCare support groups offer a supportive environment where patients can process their self-treatment. Although support groups do not replace a higher level of care, shared experiences bring positive benefits. See the complete schedule of our Outpatient Support Groups below. We are here to support every patient’s recovery and keep them connected to the resources they need. To learn more, contact us here.
