Treatment Model: Walden Behavioral Care is one of the first eating disorder programs in the country to offer a continuum of care including inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment programs for adults, adolescents, males, and females with eating disorders.

The eating disorder programs provided at the So. Windsor, CT clinic include: Adult Partial Hospitalization, Adult Intensive Outpatient, Adult Intensive Outpatient for Binge and Night Eating and Adolescent Intensive Outpatient.

To determine which level of care meets an individual's current medical and emotional needs, an initial clinical assessment is performed. After the assessment is completed, patients are referred to the appropriate level of care and assigned a treatment team including a case manager, nurse and physician. This team of experts designs a comprehensive treatment plan to meet the individual's medical, nutritional, behavioral, and psychiatric needs. Throughout treatment, patients are continuously monitored and treatment is adjusted to meet their needs. While many patients advance through the continuum, some patients will need to move from a lower level of care to a higher level of care to accommodate their current needs.

Walden Behavioral Care treats Anorexia and Bulimia; males and females, adolescents, and adults. They also work with Athletes and Compulsive Exercisers, Binge Eating Disorder, Night Eating Syndrome, Laxative Abuse, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).
