The Eating Disorder Resource Center was the first outpatient program to develop specialized treatment for women and men who were suffering from bulimia.We now treat a wide range of eating disorders, offering individual, group, family and couples treatment for those challenged by bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia and other kinds of body dysmorphia. EDRC is especially known for integrating a psychological understanding of the disordered eating with direct intervention regarding the food or weight related behaviors.
EDRC is based in the west 50’s in Manhattan. However patients can be seen by therapists in locations throughout the city. We also have a large network of referral sources — such as physicians, psychiatrists, nutritionists and gynecologists — so that all concerns can best be addressed.
With over 30 years of experience, we are keenly aware of the latest research and clinical understandings of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders. We are dedicated to knowing what can best help when you or someone you know is in trouble with food.
The Eating Disorder Resource Center is pleased to announce our new training program:
