"The empowerment model and the opportunity to practice skills outside of the program are EDCD's main strengths. I appreciated the philosophy of needing to take responsibility for my own treatment and to be motivated to make changes."
- Former Patient
Recovery from an eating disorder truly begins when the underlying cause of the condition is understood and treated. Eating disorders are often associated with other conditions, such as depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder, which is why we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with a dual diagnosis, or co-occurring condition.
At Eating Disorder Center of Denver, we understand that the causes of an eating disorder are complex. Many root causes involve cultural and family pressures, as well as emotional and personality disorders. Our therapists are exceptionally well qualified to identify and treat dual diagnoses. This enables us to effectively treat the eating disorder and you as a whole. By understanding and addressing all aspects of your eating disorder, you are empowered to regain your health and acquire the skills that will lead you to an active and healthy life.
