The New Standard For Recovery
Eating Disorder and Substance Abuse Treatment
“I have not this consistently eaten healthful food for as long as I can remember. Being healthy isn’t hard, it just takes practice.”
Nearly 50 percent of people struggling with an eating disorder also regularly abuse substances. As a result, a large number of those seeking treatment for substance abuse have a need for treatment of a co-occurring eating disorder in order to experience full recovery. The St. Gregory Recovery Program empowers women struggling with an eating disorder and substance abuse to transform their lives. Our innovative program uses medical supervision, nutritional education, and cognitive behavioral therapy in a caring and supportive environment proven to help you succeed.
The first phase of our treatment program focuses on determining the severity of the eating disorder and addressing any physical damage or malnourishment that it may have caused. This phase provides around-the-clock medical monitoring and supervision. With resources including physicians, a staff psychiatrist, and 24/7 nursing, we carefully monitor guests in this first stages of treatment to lay the foundation of recovery.
As guests progress through treatment, the frequency of monitoring and medical examinations are reduced as guests are encouraged and supported in taking increased responsibility for their continued recovery. Ongoing medical care focuses on meeting nutrition and weight goals while monitoring and encouraging continually improving health.
Guests are assessed individually by our staff Clinical Psychologist to determine the severity of the eating disorder and to customize a treatment plan designed to address both substance abuse and the eating disorder concurrently.
Research indicates that Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the most effective method available for treating many eating disorders. The St. Gregory Recovery Program has years of experience using the best, evidence-based practices in cognitive behavior therapy for overcoming substance abuse. Additional group and individual cognitive therapy sessions are targeted specifically at identifying and changing underlying beliefs that reinforce and sustain an eating disorder.
Health and Wellness
Our medical staff consisting of physicians, nurses, personal trainers, and a dietitian work together with guests to create and to monitor a diet and exercise plan that lays the foundation for healthy, lasting habits. Regular assessments and education provide a framework that allows guests a safe environment for developing and practicing the skills needed for recovery from eating disorders while also building health and wellness that allow them to live free from substance abuse.
