The treatment staff at WD Recovery and Wellness Center provides high quality clinical programs. It is our mission to help save the lives of those suffering from eating disorders and Addictions.  The primary purpose of WD Recovery and Wellness Center is to treat the dysfunctional behavior in a supportive environment.  A staff of caring and experienced professionals, many who are recovering themselves, assist the affected individual and family in developing a lifelong program for recovery.  We recognize the complexity of the disorder and understand the medical, psychological, physical, and nutritional aspects of eating disorders.  Our treatment approach is centered on the special needs of each individual and we are completely committed to help individuals achieve recovery.  The treatment consists of experienced professionals, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, family counselors, dietitians, exercise counselors, and nurses who assist the individual and family through the program.  Through the utilization of a multi-disciplinary approach, the individuals learn to love and respect themselves and to form positive relationships with their family.

Willpower alone does not work because it's a disease.  Millions of Americans suffer from an eating disorder, alcohol, and substance abuse addiction.  Their lives are controlled by food, alcohol or drugs. For the eating disorder, gaining or losing weight becomes the focus of their existence. They often feel guilty, isolated, depressed and ashamed.  They may be compulsively overeating, binge purging, or starving themselves.  All of them have one thing in common.  They are suffering from an eating disorder, which can be fatal if left untreated.  With professional support, lifelong recovery and freedom from an eating disorder can be achieved. The key to recovery for any addiction whether it's the food, alcohol, substance, and or cutting is to understand the root cause of the self-destructive behavior and to acquire the tools to facilitate the necessary changes.

This is the core of WD Recovery and Wellness Center philosophy: IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT YOU'RE NOT ALONE WE CAN HELP.
We believe that the eating disorder and addictions has acted as a survival mechanism to help the individual cope with their life.  For this reason, we not only address the mistaken beliefs but also teach each individual new coping techniques to handle life's situations.Most treatment programs utilize a reward and punishment system.  We do not utilize such systems because they are ineffective.  Individuals with eating disorders and addictions have spent enough time punishing themselves already.  WD Recovery and Wellness Centers approach is centered on the individual.  All aspects of the individual's life are explored and addressed in a supportive environment.  We do not concentrate solely on the symptoms of the eating disorder and addictions or focus on dieting.  Instead, individual, family and group counseling as well as nutritional guidance, exercise training, and educational sessions are all combined to create the path towards recovery.

Upon admission to the program a complete one on one assessment process begins.  The assessments include:§    Medical Evaluation§    Psychological Evaluation§    Nutritional Assessment§    Exercise Assessment§    Nursing Assessment§    Laboratory Work-up§    Psych-social Assessment From these evaluations, an individualized treatment plan is developed, which sets the path for the specific direction of the treatment.  The treatment team meets weekly to discuss and update each individual's treatment plan.  We believe the individual is an integral part of the treatment team and is included in setting and redirecting the treatment process.
