Eating Disorder Program
Our Eating Disorder Program provides adolescent and adult women with individualized treatment plans for eating disorders. We look at each patient holistically and employ evidence-based treatments, complementary therapies and experiential treatments. Our compassionate treatment team includes medical and mental health professionals who educate, support and empower teens and women with eating disorders to change their unhealthy behaviors involving their food, appearance and weight.
Sovereign Health’s diverse clinical treatment team provides thorough medical and biopsychosocial assessments to diagnose and treat the primary eating disorder and any co-occurring conditions. We offer treatment programs that are comprehensive and individually tailored to meet all patients’ specific needs to assist women in overcoming their unhealthy behaviors, develop effective coping mechanisms to deal with stress, improve their relationships, and begin on their road to recovery from eating disorders.
