Magnolia Creek Eating Disorder Treatment Center is a place women gather for treatment, healing and restoration to begin recovery from eating disorders. Eating disorders can include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, diabulimia, body dysmorphia disorders, rumination disorder, pica, and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder and other specified/unspecified eating disorders. We believe each woman embracing treatment at Magnolia Creek is unique, therefore, we use a whole person approach that provides a complete treatment experience, addressing the medical, nutritional, psychological, social-emotional, behavioral, and spiritual needs, available through our Christian pathway.
Magnolia Creek is a licensed, Joint Commission accredited treatment center, specializing in eating disorder and co-occurring substance use disorder treatment. Stimulants and prescription drugs can be treated in conjunction with an eating disorder. Individuals are cared for by highly-skilled and compassionate treatment team of psychiatrists, therapists, nurses and dietitians. When needed our team gently guides the client from detox coordination to admission. We work together to create an initial treatment plan for recovery that not only nourishes the body but strengthens the spirit. Magnolia Creek offers a clinically excellent program that goes beyond the symptoms and behaviors of an eating disorder and substance use disorder to honor the personal journey through recovery. Other co-occurring mental health conditions may include depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, self-harm, attachment disorder, and personality disorders.
