How We Can Help
Adult women and young girls ages 11-17 are at the heart of all that we do at The Meadows Ranch. Our program seeks to help people heal from their eating disorders by uncovering the complex psychological factors contributing to an unhealthy relationship with food. We have a proven track record of treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and a wide range of other eating disorders. While we address the food-related behaviors in creative, positive ways, we also take an in-depth look at the underlying issues and trauma that lead to eating disorders in the first place.What We Treat
The most life-threatening of all psychiatric disorders, anorexia nervosa is a complex problem. While the effects may be most noticeable physically, the disorder is about far more than food and requires a multi-faceted approach from those with experience in treating eating disorders.
Characterized by overeating followed by self-induced vomiting or the use of laxatives and diuretics, bulimia nervosa usually requires professional care to break the addictive binge-purge cycle and address not just the behavior but the underlying causes.
Binge Eating Disorder
Marked by repeatedly consuming large amounts of food as a result of compulsion, not hunger, binge eating disorder may also involve eating faster than usual or eating until uncomfortably full. Its prevalence makes it the most common eating disorder today.
Other Eating Disorders
In addition to the most commonly known conditions, pica, rumination disorder, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), and other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED) each come with their own symptoms, signs, and characteristics.
