Kris Shock
Program Director
I’ve been working in the eating disorder field for more than 15 years in varying roles including outreach, non-profit and prevention. One of my clinical passions is the ethical and responsible integration of substance use and eating disorder treatment. My favorite thing about our beautiful residential space is our ability to really get to know our residents. We have five beds helping us to provide experiential support in a really impactful way. I am a firm believer that recovery is possible. My advice for those who are contemplating treatment is to take a leap of faith. You are capable of far more than you may believe.
What We Offer
This is a structured and therapeutic program that is meant to mimic real-life experiences with the support of our empathic care providers. Residential treatment is ideal for adults who are medically stable, but would still benefit from having 24-hour support.

The most helpful part of my experience at Walden was: all the staff’s support. I truly felt they cared and were invested in helping me make progress in my recovery.
I am leaving Walden with a happy heart and hope for the future; the second part of my journey has begun.

I appreciated having someone to listen to me because at home I feel and fear that no one is willing to listen to any concerns, anxieties, and apprehensions.
Because of the love and support from Walden, I am now starting to believe for myself that life can be better.
