What Should You Look for in an 

Eating Disorder Provider?

Choosing a provider of eating disorder treatment, among hundreds of options, can be an overwhelming process. Trust us - we’ve worked with more than 17,000 individuals and families who are going through what you’re feeling now.

Let us help you make the right decision. Here are some questions you should be asking:

Will I have to travel far? Traveling thousands of miles for treatment can be costly, and take away from critical support networks. At Walden, our mission is providing the best care possible, as close to home as possible. We have 11 convenient locations across New England. 

What happens if I need higher/lower levels of care? Recovering from an eating disorder is rarely a straight line. Many individuals frequently move between different levels of care, which can often result in changing providers and added stress. That’s not the case at Walden –we offer New England’s only full system of care for eating disorders – inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient – under one network. This means easy access to all levels of support throughout your journey to recovery.

Is insurance covered? Treatment can be incredibly costly, especially if a provider doesn’t cover your insurance. Walden minimizes the burden for you, as we are “in network” with most insurance and managed care companies.

Is treatment proven to work? There are endless ways to treat an eating disorder, each resulting in different outcomes. At Walden, we only focus on the innovative therapy and skills training proven to provide the best chance for a lasting recovery, including Family-Based Treatment (FBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

How personalized will treatment be? Although eating disorders impact 30 million Americans, no two cases are ever the same. At Walden, you aren’t a patient; you’re an individual. Our programming is tailored towards your unique background and personal goals. 

Let us answer any questions you have– and get you on the road to recovery starting today.
