Eating disorders are not something to be taken lightly—they are mental health conditions that can be detrimental to your health and body. Many experts believe that eating disorders stem from multiple psychological, biological, and environmental factors. Recovering from an eating disorder isn’t completed by simply switching to a new diet. The path to recovery begins with seeking professional help. At Fairwinds Treatment Center, we have over 30 years of experience in offering caring and professional eating disorder treatment to patients throughout Clearwater, Florida, and surrounding areas.
Fairwinds Treatment Center is a pioneer of dual-diagnosis treatment. Not only do we diagnose an eating disorder, but we also work to find the root cause that contributes to or may have caused the eating disorder (such as past traumas). Next, we work with patients to provide personalized treatment including medical care, psychiatric and psychological services, and nutrition therapy.
Our inpatient treatment allows patients to live full-time in our comfortable facility and have 24/7 access to care from our team of physicians, psychologists, dietitians, and other specialists. Most of the patients who choose inpatient care stay at our facility for 28 to 60 days, however, we understand that each patient has their own journey to recovery and that the length of your stay will be determined by your individual care plan.
Other options are to choose outpatient care or to transition to outpatient care from inpatient care. Outpatient care allows you to live at home and still gain invaluable support from our facility. This includes checking in regularly with our team, monitoring your progress, and receiving any necessary individual behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, family therapy, meal planning, and/or fitness counseling.
