24-hour Care with the Comforts of Home
Our adult residential eating disorder program, located in Dunwoody, is the only adult residential eating disorder program in Georgia and provides an intimate, home-like setting for adults who need a more structured and monitored treatment environment. One thing people are often surprised to learn is that you don’t have to be a Georgia resident to seek treatment there, and often there is not a waitlist, so you can begin treatment right away.
Walden offers specialized eating disorder support at varying levels of care for adults, and we treat all genders and all diagnoses. Our diverse team of care professionals has experience working with all types of people and understands that all healing journeys are unique. Day and evening eating disorder treatment programs are also available online through our Alpharetta, Georgia location.
