Eating Disorder Recovery Residential Care

If you, or someone you love, is caught in the grasp of an eating disorder, residential care may be the most effective way to reclaim your freedom. 

Rogers Behavioral Health has been a leader in residential treatment for eating disorders for more than three decades. We were among the first offering this most intensive level of care and pioneered separate programming for males back in 1997. Our ability to handle complex cases, particularly with co-existing eating disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety, is well recognized by referring providers. Our outcomes show that our eating disorders treatment works.

Through our residential care you’ll find a physician-led, multidisciplinary team of professionals all focused on treating adolescents (age 12-17) and adults (18 and older) with: 

  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Bulimia nervosa
  • Binge eating disorder
  • Avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID)
  • Other eating disorders or co-occurring conditions, with a focus on OCD and anxiety 

If you have a child with disordered eating, Rogers' residential OCD and Anxiety Center for children provides care to kids age 8 to 13. 

Our goal? To help you or your child become nutritionally and medically stable, provide the structure and skills needed to face your challenges, and overall, to help you or a loved one find the resilience to achieve and maintain recovery. 

We want to help.

You, or a son or daughter, will live on campus, typically for 30 to 60 days. With separate treatment for adolescents and adults, you or your child will benefit from an individualized treatment plan designed to heal physical health, mental health, and self-esteem. Through a variety of activities and therapies, in group and individual settings, you’ll build skills to create positive, lasting change in the way you think and behave when it comes to food, exercise, and body image. 

In addition to medical management, your or a loved one's personal care plan will include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with an emphasis on graduated exposure and response prevention (ERP), along with behavioral activation and dialectical behavior-informed skill development. 

At Rogers, experiential therapy is an integral part of all of our residential care. A special focus is horticultural therapy, where you’ll use your CBT and ERP coping skills to address your anxieties and fears as you grow, maintain and eventually prepare meals for you and your family. 

Other components of therapy:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Family education and family therapy 
  • Spiritual/pastoral care
  • Substance use counseling
