At Magnolia Creek, evidence based treatment is at the core of everything we do. At the same time, we take a holistic approach, providing comprehensive treatment in a home-like setting. But what’s different about evidence based treatment for eating disorders?
Strengths-Based and Collaborative
Magnolia Creek’s programs emphasize self-acceptance, validation, and personal empowerment. As such, we acknowledge the client as the most important member of the treatment team. The evidence based treatment for eating disorders at Magnolia Creek is active rather than passive, collaborative rather than imposed, and personal rather than detached. Our holistic program addresses the medical, nutritional, psychological, spiritual, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of our clients so they can fully recover, not simply manage their eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions.
In addition to traditional group and individual therapy, our program offers art therapy, yoga, gentle movement, recreational and equine therapies, cooking groups, and other experiential therapies. These varied experiences allow women to heal holistically. They also improve social skills and let them practice their learned coping skills.
Our evidence based treatment model emphasizes both group and individual therapy. Clients have five to eight weekly individual sessions (with the therapist, dietitian, psychiatrist, nurse practitioner/nutritional medicine physician, and clinical director), in addition to 20 to 30 hours of group therapy. These sessions allow clients to dig deep into the root of their eating disorder to find hope and empowerment.
