Set 25 minutes outside of the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, Castlewood offers state-of-the-art addiction treatment for eating disorders. Rather than simply focus on the symptoms, the residential rehab works on treating the underlying issues of the illness, offering individualized care that’s tailored to each client. The facility also addresses co-occurring disorders such as OCD, social anxiety disorder, major depression, generalized anxiety, substance abuse and PTSD. In a non-judgmental and highly supportive setting, clients learn to come to terms with their illness and develop coping skills for a healthy and fulfilling life in recovery.
Castlewood II Treatment Center Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Co-Occurring Disorders
Many clients with an Eating Disorder also have other psychiatric disorders, such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, or Major Depression and once they give up eating disorder symptoms, the other psychiatric symptoms become more acute. It is important that such diagnoses are made early in treatment and treated simultaneously with the eating disorder. The same is true for trauma-based disorders such as sexual abuse or Attachment Disorder of childhood.
- Male Eating Disorder Treatment
Castlewood treats men with all types of eating disorders age 16 and above. Our approach is tailored to meet the specific needs of each client. Men are housed in the same residence as women with single bedrooms. Men participate in groups and meals with women. Treatment for men is both similar and different than for women. While some men have very comparable developmental pathways or “causes” to their eating disorder as women, others do not. Each client must explore the issues which gave rise to the development of their eating disorder. Most clients have issues with gender identity and sexuality. Gender and sexuality issues for men can be quite different than for women and must be explored in a safe environment. Family dynamics, stigma and body image concerns for men with eating disorders often are very different than for females.
