Anorexia Treatment

Anorexia Treatment Center

The Highlands’ upscale anorexia treatment center provides expert care in the beautiful, rolling hills of Birmingham, Alabama. Our center is recognized as one of the most highly respected treatment centers for anorexia in the Southeast. We offer two important levels of care as part of the continuum treating individuals with anorexia:
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Day Treatment
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) Program provides up to 12 hours of treatment a day for up to 7 days a week. Individuals in our second level of IOP are able to be part of our flexible programming option, in which programming hours can be tailored to fit the life demands. Aftercare services are integrated into both our PHP and IOP programs. After completing our services, outpatient therapy is available from staff therapists who also maintain private offices within our treatment center. This often allows clients who took part in our anorexia treatment programs to continue their therapeutic relationship with their primary therapist after formal discharge from The Highlands.

Among Other Treatment Centers for Anorexia, The Highlands Stands Out

The Highlands Treatment Center is designed to optimize the recovery process, and includes a large kitchen and dining room for skills practice, processing, and education. Meals are shared in comfort, in a modern and beautiful setting. We are located in a safe, secure, and completely confidential office park in the beautiful Greystone neighborhood of Birmingham. Accommodations for clients are situated within a nearby luxury apartment complex. Our transitional living apartments are comfortable, modern and homelike. Clients in our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) may opt to live in our transitional living housing for a reasonable monthly accommodation fee. Recovery includes the hours outside of active therapy, and The Highlands’ transitional living housing provides this important atmosphere, with peer support and accountability. Meals during treatment hours are provided at our anorexia treatment center. Each client at The Highlands has a completely individualized meal plan. Meals are prepared by a professional catering service using only the freshest ingredients. Learning to enjoy food again is an important milestone for someone with anorexia.
