Full Recovery IS possible

Our Recovery Philosophy

Our program is based on The Recovery Model which states that full recovery from an Eating Disorder is possible. The Recovery Model identifies the Eating Disorder as a symptom of deeper, unresolved issues. We assist clients in identifying and resolving the underlying causes of the Eating Disorder as well as developing a more balanced relationship with food. Once a person learns how to effectively confront these issues and the emotions they produce, the eating pattern and relationship with food stabilizes. Consequently, a person can “recover” from an Eating Disorder, rather than remaining in the perpetual process of “recovering.” The true heart of the Recovery Model is more than behavioral change; it encompasses personal growth and development of life management skills. Because our program addresses the underlying symptoms of the Eating Disorder, clients are able to experience a deeper and more lasting recovery.

We increase recovery rates by taking a Comprehensive Approach.

A Comprehensive approach means we address all contributing issues such as dual-diagnosis and family issues.

Dual Diagnosis: It is our experience that a high number of people who receive treatment for an Eating Disorder also are dealing with a second diagnosis such as Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Self-harm, or Anxiety. Often, the second diagnosis is uncovered in the course of treatment. Because these conditions can impact the recovery process, Canopy Cove Treatment Center prioritizes early identification of co-occurring disorders; We simultaneously treat dual diagnosis to provide the most effective treatment. We also offer a fully developed treatment track for those dealing with an Eating Disorder and Diabetes or “Diabulimia”.

Family Issues: We know that the individual who comes to Canopy Cove is not the only one affected by the disorder. Very often other family members have been impacted. This is why our treatment is comprehensive and includes family education and weekly family therapy. Our family therapists interact with the clients as well as family members, facilitating an understanding of Eating Disorders and focusing on topics such as communication, conflict resolution, anger management and restoring broken relationships. For out of town family members we offer tele-conference calls.

Parents please note: After 25 years of working with the Eating Disorder population we have a firm belief that Eating Disorders are complex conditions caused by a combination of factors including biological, psychological and environmental factors. Research on the exact cause is ongoing but has linked genetic predispositions to the development of Eating Disorders. In addition, we firmly hold that Families are NOT responsible for causing Eating Disorders. “No evidence exists to prove that families cause Eating Disorders.” Treatment of Patients With Eating Disorders, Third Edition, APA Practice Guidelines, May 2006
