- Eating Disorder Treatment
Rosewood provides a comprehensive continuum of care for eating disorder treatment, including a licensed inpatient facility with 24 hour medical supervision to stabilize and treat the most severe eating disorder cases. We accept individuals of all ages, genders and stages of eating disorders, treating them with respect, compassion and mutual trust. Our caring clinicians will get to know you as a person and develop an individualized eating disorder recovery plan based on your needs.
- Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
A co-occurring disorder describes the presence of two or more disorders at the same time. For example, a person suffering from anorexia bulimia may also be suffering from substance abuse. By addressing both the eating disorder and the substance use disorder at the same time as well as applying a variety of other therapies, a patient can make significant improvements. At Rosewood, our staff has worked with many people suffering from anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder and has discovered that the majority of these patients often suffer from more than one clinical disorder such as alcohol addiction, drug addiction, depression, anxiety, or PTSD.
