Hope and Healing in recovery always occur within a context of connections. These connections include:
- The connections we have with ourselves
- The connections we have with others, and
- The connections we have with the world and universe around us
Our philosophy is grounded in the belief that hope and healing in recovery occur within a context of connections, including the connections we have with ourselves, with others, and with the world and universe around us.
The Healing Connection views eating disorders as diseases of disconnection, and we recognize that the disease will do all that it can to sever positive relationships, leaving the individual primarily connected to the eating disorder.
We work to strengthen patients physically, emotionally, and spiritually in order to help the patient feel empowered to disconnect from the eating disorder and reconnect with their genuine feelings, needs, life values and goals. Additionally, we work to help the patient reconnect with others and build new relationships that promote lasting recovery.
OUR TREATMENT VALUES
Our treatment approach is family and relationship-based, as we stress the importance of connection, and repairing disconnection caused by eating disorders. The team at The Healing Connection helps patients and families identify support systems and engages with them during treatment and discharge planning.
