Eating disorder center sees patient spike over holidays
Most would agree that the holidays are a stressful time of year, but especially so for those facing an eating disorder. The Moore Center in Bellevue reports the number of patients seeking treatment for an eating disorder has increased nearly 20 percent this holiday season.
The Moore Center announced today it is partnering with Eating Recovery Center, an international center for eating disorders recovery providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS and binge eating disorder based in Denver, Colo.
This partnership brings synergies to both organizations, enabling The Moore Center to enhance its current treatment options and expand its ability to provide inpatient and residential treatment for eating disorders, and providing Eating Recovery Center patients an additional high quality treatment option to explore as they step down from higher levels of care. Patients at both facilities will experience the benefits of two of the best programs sharing medical and clinical practices and philosophies.
