An Eating Disorder Treatment Facility Designed with You in Mind

Reasons Eating Disorder Center was created by a multidisciplinary team of professionals with extensive expertise in eating disorders, trauma, substance use disorders and related psychiatric issues. We offer a full continuum of gender-inclusive care with dedicated inpatient, residential for adults 18+ and outpatient eating disorder treatment programs for adults and adolescents. Our outpatient programs include partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adolescents 10-17 years old and adults 18+.

Who We Serve

Our treatment programs offer gender-inclusive services for individuals, allowing you to become your fullest self as you dig deep to find your inner courage to recover and heal. From specialized eating disorder programs that help teach you recovery tools to evidence-based nutrition philosophy and therapy, Reasons Eating Disorder Center provides hope for your healing. We encourage you to use this opportunity to fully explore and celebrate who you are as you pursue recovery.

Our commitment is to diversity and patients of all backgrounds because we recognize that eating disorders do not discriminate. We are committed to education and advocacy regarding issues of marginalization, shame and isolation.

Reasons Eating Disorder Center, located in Greater Los Angeles, is also a certified TRICARE® provider and treats active duty service members, retirees, and their military family members. The Reasons team has tremendous respect for the service that the women and men of the armed forces provide to our country. We are committed to honoring their dedication and sacrifice by providing them with respectful and individualized care.

Our case managers, program directors and therapists coordinate care with commanders and other involved treatment professionals for the duration of the patients’ stay at Reasons. For more details, visit our Insurance Information page, or download our TRICARE® Brochure.

Honoring Marginalized Voices

Our bodies experience and internalize marginalizing experiences. This is especially true for people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, people in larger bodies, and other groups who are sometimes excluded when we talk about eating disorders—those we recognize as having marginalized voices.

At Reasons Eating Disorder Center, we are dedicated to creating a safe space for people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives to have a voice in treatment. We offer a genuinely personalized treatment approach–inclusive, person-centered and collaborative care for those struggling with the pain of an eating disorder. We are committed to respecting and uplifting marginalized experiences by:

  • Exploring the intersection of identities and people’s experiences of discrimination and marginalization.
  • Acknowledging the confluence of stressors associated with minority status, all of which puts people from these communities at particularly high risk for the development of disordered eating behaviors and their attendant consequences.
  • Addressing the issues and pain underlying the disorder.
  • Looking beyond the symptoms to help anyone suffering from an eating disorder start the process of healing.
Reasons Eating Disorder Center About Us

Providing Acute Psychiatric Care

Our inpatient services are offered at BHC Alhambra Hospital. As part of a larger hospital, we are able to work with most major insurance plans to obtain authorization for treatment and believe in working with families and outpatient providers to develop a cohesive treatment plan that will ensure the success of the patient struggling with eating disorder recovery.

This connection also gives us the ability to handle acute mental health issues and provide addiction treatment, a key difference amongst other eating disorder treatment centers in the region.
