Our facility is open to both men and women, ages 16 and above. Our experienced clinicians use a three-armed therapy approach, with medical, therapeutic, and nutritional treatment supporting the recovery process. Research shows that this multi-faceted approach is the most effective means of treatment for someone with an eating disorder. Unfortunately, some treatment centers focus on only one or two of these areas, leading to a relapse. The Highlands philosophy is to provide fully customized care, integrating the medical, therapeutic, and nutritional needs of each client in a dynamic and ongoing process.
