The program, which has been treating patients successfully for more than 30 years, is directed jointly by the Stanford University School of Medicine’s Adolescent Medicine Division and Division of child and Adolescent Psychiatry. As a major research center for the care of patients with a full spectrum of eating disorders, they provide the most advanced and most effective medical, psychological and psychiatric treatments available with the same emphasis on family-centered care that is the hallmark of treatment at Packard Children’s. Packard Children’s physicians were pioneers in bringing the successful family-based treatment known as the Maudsley Approach to the United States, authoring treatment models and leading research that demonstrates evidence of its effectiveness. Expertise in this area makes Packard Children’s an ideal resource for families looking for a center that will support their efforts to address their child’s eating disorder. Patients access care through the program's eating disorders outpatient clinic, or if they are in need of medical stabilization, through the inpatient Comprehensive Care Program. The combination of both inpatient and outpatient services in one program makes the Packard Children’s Hospital eating disorders program truly unique.

They invite their clients to develop their inherent gifts and talents and give them the opportunity to express them within their program. As a result, the essence of their true selves becomes part of the collective process of healing within a connected, congruent, and compassionate community. They call this The Nova Luna Process. Full recovery is possible. At the Nova Luna Center they believe that recovery can only occur if it holds personal meaning for those who are choosing it.

Their programs are holistic, integrative and evidence based utilizing nutrition counseling, individual and group therapy.

Center for Hope of the Sierras: www.centerforhopeofthesierras.com. The Center for Hope of the Sierras is a residential center for the treatment of anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders (ages 16 and up). The Center's philosophy is that in order to achieve full recovery, patients must redefine life on terms which are of true value and meaning to them, rather than cultural pressures to pursue a body-size and shape that makes no biological sense. It is the belief of The Center that eating disorder patients are unique, creative, caring and sensitive individuals who have lost a connection with their true inner spirit. To this end, the Center offers treatment emphasizing a therapeutic alliance and opportunities for self-exploration; esteem will naturally begin to develop as the self has begun to emerge. Upon admission, each individual is given a comprehensive evaluation that allows the patient and staff to develop an individualized treatment regime that meets their psychological and physical needs. The internist will provide a complete physical exam for all patients upon admission, and will provide ongoing medical care throughout the patient’s stay. Recognizing the importance of reintegration and reunification with family, the Center offers individual as well as multi-family therapy. Family weekend visits and conference call therapy for long-distance families are encouraged to improve family dynamics and help them gain a sense of understanding of the illness. Throughout their stay, the individual needs of each patient are continually reassessed. The Center emphasizes the need to separate the patient from the disease, and to anticipate the influence of the eating disorder on the patient's feelings, thoughts, and behavior; working together with the patient to combat the illness through their vast array of treatment options. For more information, visit the website, call toll-free: 877-828-4949, direct: 775-828-4949, or email info@centerforhopeofthesierras.com.

Tapestry Residential Eating Disorder Program: www.tapestrync.com. At Tapestry, your initial assessment will include an eating history which will explore not only present eating disorder symptoms but patterns of symptoms that have emerged at different times. They operate from an understanding of the importance not just of a diagnosis, but of the fluidity of eating disorder symptoms and the need to address all of these symptoms as part of treatment. For instance, they know that many women who have initially restricted, later develop symptoms more common to bulimia. Other women develop anorexia in response to efforts to lose weight gained from initial binging patterns. Still others alternate between long restricting periods and periods of bulimia. Without such a historical view, significant clinical information can be lost which directly impacts the outcome of care. They subscribe to a Bio/Psycho/Social/Spiritual understanding of illness and recovery- a framework that takes into consideration both heredity, psychological strengths and vulnerabilities, and life events as intermingled forces that move a person toward resilience or ill health. Their approach is to focus on the whole person and to assist you not only in mastering the destructive patterns of your eating disorder, but to attend to the deeper issues that contributed to the development of the illness.

Grey Matters International, Inc.: www.kevinflemingphd.com/aboutkevin.php. President/CEO/Owner: Dr. Kevin J. Fleming, B.A., M.A., Ph.D. Grey Matters International, Inc. is a unique neuroscience-based "they come to you" concierge level service for irrationality and ED behavior change concerns. They work both with individuals and family systems in a discreet setting. They travel the world with their cutting edge neurotechnology to do what most treatment centers can't do: change the neural networks of the brain running the show. All highly private and customized in a one-on-one manner. We work worldwide including the following locations:  Los Angeles; New York; Dublin, Ireland; The Caymans. They believe that most of human decision making is "predictably irrational" in its normal form, and that ED conditions and most compulsive/addiction disorders are just manifestations of this fact gone to an extreme. They believe most shrinks, psychiatrists, self-help approaches, and treatment centers fail to incorporate this understanding about humanity and therefore miss the way to truly change the brain. They believe that ED issues are enhanced by including change in the client's family system environment, given the research that shows much of these kinds of behaviors have an origin in some of these unresolved dynamics. Finally, they believe cutting edge neurotechnologies hold more promise for neuroplastic change than years of psychotherapy or pills.
