Remuda Ranch at The Meadows, a comprehensive treatment center specializing in eating and co-occurring disorders for women and girls, has appointed James “Buck” Runyan, MS, MFT, LPC, CEDSs, Clinical Director over the inpatient and residential LIFE campus.
Runyan has over 20 years of experience working with eating disorders and addictions, including nearly seven years at Remuda Ranch holding clinical leadership positions. In addition to counseling and administrative work, he is a sought-after speaker and workshop facilitator on a vast array of eating disorder and family therapy related topics. Runyan has served on the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) Board of Directors since 2010, and is the current President of the Board of Directors for 2013-2014 in addition to a Fellow of IAEDP.
“Remuda Ranch at The Meadows is very fortunate to have Buck rejoin the organization,” said Chris Diamond, Executive Director. “Since starting his career at Remuda in the 90’s, Buck has made a significant impact on the eating disorder industry through program development, his private practice, and service with the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. He will bring a wealth of experience and energy in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating.”
“Being back on the Remuda campus felt like returning home, but yet, home is different, and it felt good,” said Runyan. “The essence of the program is solid in the state of the art facility, core treatment approach, and the super confident staff,” he added. “Within the established foundation, I want to help create a destination center for eating disorder treatment which focuses on the heart of the patient and their family. Having spent many years developing programs in multiple levels of care, it is evident the key to long-term success is found in knowledgeable and skillfully supportive family relationships.”
