At Avalon Hills, we have helped hundreds of clients in our eating disorder programs. We have assisted in building strong personal foundations for a healthy future.
We are a privately held, residential treatment program. We at Avalon Hills are not part of a larger outfit, we’ve been able to buck today’s big trend. Other Eating Disorder residential programs have been turned into franchises, which often have standardized approaches to programming, that produce results which all too often don’t last because the length of treatment, and type of treatment, and standard of care, has been predetermined by insurance plans, and not by clinical need.
We have a program that puts together the latest scientific understanding of how the brain adapts and changes with the very best forms of humane therapy, combining recent developments with those that have stood the test of time. Our therapists are trained to deeply engage with clients, and help not only diminish their symptoms, but to find out what is causing the problem in the first place. Using our entire milieu, individualized psychotherapy, and multiple other therapies, we help them remove the blocks to healthy development and eating, and to grow out of their difficulties. As well, our clients often emerge with a new potential to connect to others and to develop a sense of self and their life’s purpose. To do this we have worked with international experts in psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience, and pioneered a unique approach to Eating Disorders.
As a privately held company, we are singularly focused on one thing—Treat to Outcome. Treat to Outcome is a commitment to keep clients in treatment until they are able to sustain treatment gains at a lower level of care. We work tirelessly to ensure our clients are given the time, care and potential to recover fully from their eating disorders.
It takes a dedicated team of skilled individuals to maintain this level of commitment to patient care. The selected candidate will work closely with our expanding treatment team of professionals with backgrounds in mental health, medicine, dietetics, neurofeedback, yoga, martial arts, equine and animal assisted therapy, culinary, case management, direct care, and business. Over the last two years there has been extensive innovation and implementation to provide a more holistic approach towards all of the treatment options we provide for our patients. Our individual focused treatment plans are based in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamics and Attachment Developmental Therapies, Experiential Therapies, Neurotherapy, Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Body Image Interventions, Mindfulness, Sensorimotor Therapy, and Psycho-Educational Groups.
