Walden in Georgia

For those who live in the Atlanta region and surrounding states, you have found compassionate eating disorder treatment personalized for your unique needs. We offer specialized eating disorder support at varying levels of care for children, teens and adults who identify as male, female, transgender and/or gender non-binary.

Our adult residential eating disorder program, located in Dunwoody, is the first and only of it’s kind in Georgia and provides treatment in an intimate, home-like setting for those requiring a more structured and monitored environment. In addition, we offer day and evening programs at our other three locations in Dunwoody, Decatur and Alpharetta giving you the flexibility to find the support you need to achieve your recovery goals regardless of where you are in your healing journey.

We recognize that eating disorders thrive in secrecy. And feel that by incorporating family and/or loved ones into your treatment plan can be an essential piece to your recovery. The Family-Based Treatment model is the focal point of our adolescent treatment program, 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.

Walden Stories
Ben’s Road Toward Recovery

Professional cyclist Ben Frederick developed an eating disorder when he was forced to stop competing after being thrown from his bike during a race resulting in a traumatic brain injury. Ben shares his story of perseverance and strength as he learned to navigate the road to a full life in recovery.

Coming Out Day

As proud allies, we are proud to foster a community, both for our patients and our employees, that values inclusivity and diversity. For this year’s “National Coming Out Day” some of our amazing employees decided to share their coming out stories in order to help others feel comfortable in doing so for themselves.
