The first step in helping a child overcome an eating disorder is to contact the Pediatric Eating Disorders Center at Atlantic Health System Children's Health for a phone assessment with one of our staff members. He or she will gather important information about the patient’s health history and current behaviors.
Next, we will schedule an in-person evaluation with a therapist and adolescent medicine physician. Working together with the parents and the patient, they will create a treatment plan that paves the road to recovery. Physician services are provided by Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children's Hospital.
Our eating disorders program was developed by and is supported through generous donations from individuals, families and organizations concerned with the prevention and treatment of eating disorders.
