Specialized Eating Disorder Treatment Programs
What sets us apart from other eating disorder treatment centers is our specialized treatment programs. We offer specialized eating disorder treatment for men, women, teens, and adults, so you can get customized treatment that’s tailored to your needs within a safe and caring background.
Eating Disorder Treatment for Adults
While many people assume that eating disorders only occur among teenagers and adolescents, many adult men and women struggle with eating disorders and body image. It’s important to remember that eating disorders affect people of all genders and across all age segments — including middle age and beyond.
Unfortunately, many women develop a distorted and negative view of their own bodies and compare themselves to fashion models or other people on social media. Among many women, the goal is often to become thin. Adult men have similar experiences, too, comparing themselves to athletes and masculine stereotypes. Unfortunately, men have a tendency in our society to stigmatize the very act of seeking help for an eating disorder. This can prevent men from seeking treatment until their health deteriorates quickly.
At Eating Disorder Solutions, we understand how eating disorders can affect men and women differently, as well as adults vs. teenagers. Our treatment programs are tailored to the individual and are highly targeted to get to the root of the eating disorder. We guide clients through their journey with acceptance and kindness in our warm and welcoming environment in Dallas, TX.
Treatment Programs for Teenagers
As teenagers are growing into their body and have immense social pressures from school and the media, eating disorders can run rampid in teenagers aged 14-17. Teens are more likely to suffer from an eating disorder since their bodies are undergoing hormonal changes. With the pressure from the media and marketing images praising those who are thin, some teenagers will take extreme measures to attain their ideal body type. This can include severely restricting calories, over exercising, or purging. On the other hand, teenage males sometimes want to increase their muscles and will obsess over their food intake and lifting weights to try and achieve a more muscular physique.
What sets us apart from other eating disorder treatment programs is that we bring together a highly experienced team of experts to address the physical, psychological and social implications of these disorders for lasting recovery.
LGBTQ+ Eating Disorder Treatment Programs
LGBTQ+ individuals experienced unique stressors that may contribute to the development of an eating disorder. In fact, research shows that, beginning as early as 12, teens who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual, may be at a higher risk of binge-eating and purging than heterosexual peers. These individuals may be dealing with a flood of emotions from their experiences such as the fear of rejection or experience of rejection by loved ones, being a victim to bullying because of their sexual orientation, or may have internalized negative beliefs about their own sexuality that have spurred an eating disorder.
At Eating Disorder Solutions, we don’t just treat the eating disorder — we dig deep to address the underlying causes of the eating disorders for whole body, mind, and spirit recovery.
Full Range of Care for Eating Disorders
At Eating Disorder Solutions in Dallas, TX, we offer a full range of eating disorder treatment programs that meet patients exactly where they are, on their own terms. As clients move along the path of recovery, they can step-down to lower levels of care within our program:
- Residential Eating Disorder Treatment: Our highest level of care designed for clients who need 24-hour support. We offer group therapy and structured activities through the eating disorder program.

Support for Families
Family’s support is crucial for lasting recovery from an eating disorder. To support families in fostering sustainable recoveries, we offer family based treatment and therapy.

We can help mend family ties and give families the tools to effectively support their young loved one’s recovery.
