The Highlands Eating Disorder Treatment CenterThe Highlands Eating Disorder Treatment Center offers multiple levels of care, each staffed by caring professionals, experienced in all types of eating disorders and associated issues. Located in the beautiful rolling hills of Birmingham, Alabama, we have created a comfortable therapeutic environment designed specifically for the particular needs of our clients. Our eating disorder recovery center has been meticulously planned to maximize a variety of effective treatment approaches. Clients can live in our beautiful apartment style therapeutic community, or at home. Licensed therapists and dietitians provide a multi-therapy approach, customized for each client. While there are some common issues and concerns, individuals with an eating disorder require highly individualized treatment, and The Highlands excels at identifying, implementing, and continually evaluating each client’s personal care plan. Clients also receive professional treatment for associated issues including anxiety, depression, self-harm, and substance abuse. Our treatment team is not only highly experienced and well-trained, but they are also empathetic and caring.
Levels of Care Offered at The Highlands Eating Disorder Recovery CenterOur intake counselors take a detailed history, and evaluate information provided by each client’s home physician and outpatient team. Some clients come to our eating disorder recovery center without any previous eating disorder outpatient treatment. Clients will be admitted to one of our specialized eating disorder treatment center programs depending on their needs for a particular frequency, intensity, and structure of care:
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- Outpatient Treatment (provided by our affiliated therapists located at The Highlands, or with the client’s own home outpatient team)
