Nestled in the quiet Fremont neighborhood along the shore of the famous Lake Washington Ship Canal is our new Seattle Residential facility—open for business!
It takes a multidisciplinary team to treat eating disorders, and each member plays a vital role in getting clients on the road to recovery. That’s why we’re highlighting the various roles within our care team in this blog series.
Our residential facility in Seattle is officially open! We have been hard at work for many months creating a warm, welcoming environment for our clients to begin to heal. Our team of experts, including a full medical staff, therapists, and dietitians will be working around the clock, offering compassionate, clinically robust treatment to our clients requiring 24/7 care.
Previous research suggests early response to eating disorder treatment predicts better outcomes, both at the end of treatment and at follow-up appointments. What do we mean by “early response”? The definition varies, but a recent research study exploring the time sensitivity of eating disorder treatment response defines early response as “a clinically meaningful improvement in behavioral symptoms within the first weeks of treatment.”
