McLean Hospital's Klarman Eating Disorder Center

Klarman Eating Disorders Center at McLean provides state-of-the-art treatment for eating disorders in girls and young women ages 13 to 22. Housed in its own newly renovated building on the grounds of McLean Hospital, the center provides a unique therapeutic environment that is conducive to recovery. The center is comprised of a highly trained multidisciplinary team, many of whom are on the Harvard Medical School faculty. The staff consists of expressive therapists, nurses, nutritionists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and teachers. The team members follow each patient throughout her course of treatment at McLean. Center clinicians and McLean staff are particularly skilled at treating co-existing conditions, such as substance abuse, depression, trauma-related disorders, anxiety disorders and other comorbid psychiatric conditions. Treatment plans are individualized for patients at each level of care and are based on a contract with the patient, her family and the center staff.
