Walden Clinic in Guilford

Our Guilford clinic is conveniently located off Interstate 95 providing easy access for those living on Connecticut’s shoreline, Rhode Island and New Haven. Our teen and adult programs are strategically offered on separate floors to ensure privacy and support your unique needs. We welcome individuals of all genders in our day and evening programs and offer a variety of specialized eating disorder programs unique to the region including programming specific to co-occurring trauma and co-occurring substance use. In fact, we are the only eating disorder program utilizing Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) with individuals who have experienced trauma. Family-Based Therapy is the focal point of our adolescent treatment program and is designed to give parents an active and positive role in helping their child to reduce disordered eating behaviors, restore weight and resume proper adolescent development. Adults will be exposed to experiential treatment intended to mimic real-life situations like going out to dinner or grocery shopping. Our compassionate and experienced team of care professionals look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your path toward wellness.

Walden Behavioral Care is contracted with most major insurance companies. Learn more today.

What We Offer
This program is ideal for teens who are medically stable but who require the structure and support of day treatment. Parents will take on a more active role at this level of care, learning – alongside your child – how to replace maladaptive behaviors with coping skills and how to deal with uncomfortable emotions in the moment.
Designed for teens in need of more structured support than their outpatient team can provide, this level of care utilizes Family-Based Treatment, an evidence-based intervention proven to support lasting recovery that is meant to equip you and your family with the skills necessary to best help your child.
This level of care is designed for individuals who require support during the day to optimize recovery success. You will experience a structured treatment environment focused on helping you to normalize eating patterns, target maladaptive coping behaviors and practice skills.
This program is designed for adults who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can provide. This level of care focuses on providing you with the skills necessary to replace maladaptive coping behaviors and to provide you with the flexibility to also balance other priorities such as work, family and/or school.
Designed for adults living with binge eating disorder, this program is ideal for individuals who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can offer.

Walden on Gratitude

This year marks Walden Behavioral Care’s 15th Anniversary. Our staff came together to reflect on what makes working at Walden, and with you, so special.

In honor of National Coming Out Day, four Walden staff shared their coming out stories. If you are questioning, wondering or grappling with identity, sexuality, gender and/or other, please know that you are not alone.
