Who Is a Fit for Treatment at The Meadows Ranch?
We offer two separate eating disorder treatment programs: one for pre-teen and adolescent girls as young as 7 and another for adult women 18 and older. We offer inpatient, residential, and partial-hospitalization levels of care for those with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, obesity, compulsive overeating, and related issues. All levels of care include on-site housing.
Our professional team of psychiatrists, registered nurses, master’s-level therapists, dietitians, and other clinical staff are equipped to handle patients who are as low as 70% of their ideal body weight and can even accept acute cases where feeding tubes are necessary. We can also accommodate diabetics, a variety of food allergies, and vegetarian patients.
We are not currently able to accommodate vegan patients. Those who are aggressive, with a history of violence, or dealing with psychosis are also not a fit for The Meadows Ranch. Because we have a very open campus, The Meadows Ranch is not recommended for those with a history of running. For potential patients who are lower than 70% of their ideal body weight, we have some great partners in the field that we will refer out to, then patients return to us when they are ready and able to engage in active treatment.
