Eating Recovery Center, California (ERC, California), a trusted provider of comprehensive treatment for eating disorders, announced today the addition of Dr. Mel McGraw to its clinical leadership team. Dr. McGraw has been working at ERC’s headquarters in Denver, CO as an Attending Psychiatrist treating patients at the inpatient, residential, and partial hospitalization levels of care.

Prior to that, he had various roles at hospital and other treatment facilities throughout the years, including the Center for Recovery and New Beginnings Chemical Dependency Program. In addition to treating co-occurring substance dependence disorders and psychiatric disorders, he also saw cases involving post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and sexual abuse.
