"The commitment, knowledge and attention given by the staff helped to facilitate my recovery. EDCD's team approach created an atmosphere that made 'opening up' safe. I felt valued and knew my issues would be dealt with respectfully and honestly."

The more you know, the better you are.
You can never know too much about how to overcome an eating disorder. Eating Disorder Center of Denver has made several resources available in order to educate patients, families and the general public on how to battle anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and all other eating disorders.
Scientific Advisory Board
Eating Disorder Center of Denver established the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) in 2009 to advise the center on the integration of clinical research into clinical practice, best industry practices and professional education. The SAB's efforts ensure that we are providing the best and most advanced care possible to our patients.
Our eating disorder expertise also goes on the road. Speakers include Eating Disorder Center of Denver's board-certified psychiatrists, clinical and program directors, primary, family and outpatient therapists, and registered dietitians.
