Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an action-oriented form of psychosocial therapy. This therapy assumes that maladaptive, or faulty, thinking patterns cause maladaptive behavior and “negative” emotions. (Maladaptive behavior is behavior that is counter-productive or interferes with everyday living.) The treatment focuses on changing an individual’s thoughts (cognitive patterns) in order to change his or her behavior and emotional state.

Eating Disorder Treatment Philosophy

The Meadows Ranch combines evidence-based theories of teaching coping and containment skills to do the more in-depth work to get at the source of the eating disorder so that a person can make a long-lasting recovery-based change.

Recovery From an Eating Disorder
