Treatment Centers in California That Can Help You Take the First Step

The journey to eating disorder recovery starts with admitting that you have a life-threatening disease. This can be extremely tough, especially if you’re still clinging to the belief that changing your body will magically cure your low self-esteem, negative body-image, fears and feelings of unworthiness. Deep inside you know this isn’t true, but you simply can’t believe it isn’t, because the eating disorder fully controls your mind.

Once you acknowledge you have a problem, deciding to seek treatment can be a daunting journey. Where do I find help? How do I find a provider specialized in eating disorders? What is the right therapy for me and what treatment setting? Inpatient? (Intensive) Outpatient? Nutrition Counseling? And what about the location, how do I find someone in my area? What about the costs? How do I know which treatment centers contracted with my insurance company?

With so many different options, it may be difficult to decide which treatment centers meet the needs of your unique situation. That’s why we started the Help Finder. Built by people who understand what you need, Recovery Warriors Help Finder helps you (or your loved one) connect to support that you can trust and that fits your individual needs.

We compiled a list for you including our favorite treatment centers in California, all having a solid foundation in treating people with complex eating disorders. Their teams consist of highly qualified staff that provide special care to ensure that your individual needs are met. All of these centers offer unique evidence-based treatment programs in beautiful serene settings, that are based on many years of experience and designed to meet your needs.
