Eating Recovery Center

Eating Recovery Center, situated at the foot of the Rockies in beautiful downtown Denver, Colorado, provides individuals 17 and older sustainable recovery from eating disorders. Our comprehensive program offers patients from across the country a continuum of care that includes inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient services.

Founded by Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, CEDS, and Emmett R. Bishop, MD, CEDS, renowned experts with more than 50 years of combined experience, Eating Recovery Center proves to be the culmination of their vision and expertise.

Medical Management

As a licensed Joint Commission accredited behavioral hospital, Eating Recovery Center’s 24/7 medical management, nursing care and clinical supervision enhance each patient’s stay. Full-time psychiatrists personally oversee the treatment regimen of every patient while an internist and nursing team manage patients’ medical needs. Close proximity to two major hospitals allows a seamless transition to acute care if medical intervention is necessary.

For extremely low-weight patients in a life-threatening condition, medical stabilization may be necessary prior to admission. In such circumstances, support from Dr. Phil Mehler, Chief Medical Officer and world expert on the medical complication of eating disorders at Denver Health Medical Center's A.C.U.T.E. (Acute Comprehensive Urgent Treatment for Eating Disorders) program, is readily available.

Putting research into practice, our treatment philosophy is drawn from innovative therapeutic methods centered on mindfulness, values orientation and collaboration with loved ones. We are committed to a seamless transition to aftercare and partnership with each patient’s treating professional.
