Eating Recovery Center’s Insight Behavioral Health Center (ERC Insight), a trusted provider of comprehensive treatment for eating, mood and anxiety disorders, has rebranded its eating disorder program under a new name: Eating Recovery Center, Chicago (ERC Chicago). ERC Chicago will open a new residential eating disorder treatment facility on May 16.

To celebrate, ERC Chicago will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Thursday, May 12, at 1:00 PM at 150 E. Huron St., Chicago, Illinois, 60601. The event will feature a local alumna who sought treatment at the center and will share her story of recovery with attendees. She will be joined by Susan McClanahan, PhD, CEDS, Chief Development Officer of ERC and President and Founder of ERC Insight, and Vesna Pirec, MD, PhD, Senior Medical Director. McClanahan and Pirec will discuss the positive impact that the expansion will have on the community and the importance of providing resources to those affected by eating disorders.

Led by esteemed eating disorder experts Susan McClanahan, PhD, CEDS, and Steven Prinz, MD, Medical Director, ERC Chicago is expanding its residential eating disorder program. The new 24-bed center located in downtown Chicago will open May 16. The center will be devoted solely to the treatment of eating disorders in adolescents (ages 13-17) and adults (ages 18 and older) to meet the emerging needs of patients and families in the Midwest.

“Launching Eating Recovery Center, Chicago, and expanding our residential program allows us to offer even more direct treatment to patients experiencing eating disorders,” said McClanahan. “As the prevalence of eating disorders continues, it’s more important than ever to provide those struggling and their families with proper treatment to overcome their circumstances and recover.”

While transitioning to the newly branded Eating Recovery Center, Chicago, in order to offer more extensive treatment options for eating disorders, Insight’s Mood and Anxiety Program will be maintained and labeled under the existing ERC Insight brand.

The brand new residential program at ERC Chicago, will address serious eating disorders through comprehensive support services, such as:

  •     Medical supervision, including 24/7 nursing support
  •     Up to eight hours of daily treatment
  •     Emphasis on medical and psychiatric stabilization and interruption of maladaptive behaviors
  •     Treatment for co-occurring illnesses
  •     Comfortable, home-like accommodations in the downtown Chicago treatment center

Patients will also be offered a full spectrum of treatment options based on their level of need, including Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient programs, or to return to their communities to participate in ongoing outpatient care.
