Located in Denver, Colorado, EDCare is a treatment organization for adult clients ages 18 and older struggling with an array of eating disorders as well as individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders and trauma. Founded in 2001, EDCare’s Denver location is the flagship facility. It offers a continuum of care including a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), standard outpatient options and aftercare.
Joint Commission accredited, EDCare employs a mindfulnesses-based approach called CAMSA (Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, Sense of Self, Action) that treats the underlying roots of the eating disorder and heals the mind, body and spirit.

It’s worth noting, the 12-step recovery model is not a component of the programming.
Treatment and Staff
EDCare treats adult clients with an array of eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, compulsive eating, binge eating and unspecified eating disorders as well as co-occurring disorders. Before beginning treatment, clients undergo a comprehensive assessment that includes a full medical exam, a psychological and psychiatric evaluation as well as a nutritional history. This evaluation helps the team to design the most effective treatment plan customized to the unique needs of the individual.
EDCare Denver offers PHP, IOP, an evening IOP, outpatient services and aftercare. Evening IOP is ideal for clients that require consistent therapy without having to stop working. In addition, there are specialized tracks for binge eating, trauma, substance use and athletics. PHP clients engage in weekly consults with a psychiatrist, individual therapy twice a week, daily group therapy as well as family therapy once a week. In group therapy, clients learn about the disease of addiction, proper nutrition, relationships, positive body image and coping mechanisms. Therapists utilize evidence-based methods like CBT, DBT and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). Nutrition therapy is an integral component to treatment. Clients have three meals a day, participate in instructive cooking classes and meet regularly with a dietitian to create a sustainable balanced meal plan.
The EDCare team is comprised of therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists, physicians, sport psychologists, conditioning consultants and clinicians. Medication management can be facilitated.
Holistic offerings include yoga, expression therapy and psychodrama that uses guided drama and role playing to foster self-empowerment.
For PHP clients in need of a place to stay, EDCare Denver offers the Connections House. The upscale home is situated a few miles from the facility, employs an in-house counselor and can accommodate up to 13 residents.
