Our Treatment Center

Our residential treatment program begins with an initial evaluation to determine each patient’s physical and mental health. We then create a treatment plan tailored to each individual’s needs. Throughout treatment, we continue to assess each patient’s physical and mental health and make changes to their treatment plan as needed.

We utilize a variety of treatment methods, including group and individual therapy. Beyond our focus on physical and mental health, we also emphasize the spiritual and social well-being of each patient. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that each patient, beyond coping, truly learns to thrive.

As each patient’s treatment begins to conclude, we provide responsibilities and additional courses to help them begin the transition back to being in control of their own life and health. We want to make sure that when our patients leave our facility, they leave ready to succeed in living a fulfilling life.

Our eating disorder treatment facility is located in Orem, UT. Call us at 888-224-8250 or contact us via our online form to begin your journey of healing today.
