What advantage does Focus Treatment Centers offer over other treatment centers?
Our eating disorder programs are founded on the work of world-renowned eating disorder expert, Dr. Anita Johnston. Due to her influence, we largely incorporate storytelling and metaphor into our clinical work and she supervisors our clinical staff overseeing each patient’s care. In addition to having the influence of Dr. Johnston’s work, we are one of the most, if not the most, affordable residential treatment center for eating disorders in the nation, and we offer intimate treatment with a low patient to staff ratio with whole person care embedded in our philosophy. We believe in treating the whole person (physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally). We offer yoga, mind/ body awareness, dance therapy, YMCA visits (for SUD unit), art therapy, nutritional therapy, and weekly outings funded by Focus (going to the movies, park, plays etc.) so that our patients can learn how to have fun again without their eating disorders.
