Therapeutic meal groups

Therapeutic meal groups, facilitated by therapists, are opportunities for patients in Providence Adult Eating Disorders Treatment Program to practice healthy eating and symptom management in the structured, supportive and supervised setting of the treatment environment.

For more than 25 years, Providence Adult Eating Disorders Treatment Program has helped patients recover from anorexia, bulimia and atypical eating disorders. Our treatment process begins with a thorough clinical assessment to address current and past eating practices and the physical and emotional consequences of these practices. This includes the evaluation of symptoms, such as depression, anxiety and substance use, as well as lifestyle factors, such as social support from family and friends. As patients approach or re-approach treatment, their readiness and the timing of treatment are also considered. Recovery is a process that requires persistence, courage and effective treatment resources.
