Residential Program

CEDC's Residential Program provides 24-hour support to females suffering from eating disorders and may serve as a viable alternative to hospitalization for some clients. Our 25-bed program serves medically stable adolescent girls and women who are ages 12 and older struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or a binge eating disorder. We have two residential floors: one dedicated to adolescent girls and the other dedicated to adult women.

Residents receive personal, on-site structure and therapeutic support in order to overcome their debilitating eating disorder. Each resident's individual treatment plan includes: nutritional, individual, family, group, and psychopharmacological treatments to help each resident develop new coping mechanisms, restore normal eating patterns, and gain an understanding about the function of their eating disorder. The schedules for the adult residential program and adolescent residential program outline what types of therapies are offered and provide a detailed overview of a resident's typical day. A multidisciplinary team of professionals with expertise in the treatment of eating disorders works to provide the highest quality of care to our residents.

CEDC will work with Massachusetts school departments to obtain tutors for patients unable to attend classes due to Residential attendance.


  • Today, I am happy, healthy and safe, and thriving because of the love and support I received at CEDC…
  • The CEDC program has left me feeling strong and optimistic, and I cannot say enough positive things about the program....I know that the road ahead will not be easy but just knowing that CEDC is there as a safety net gives me a feeling of calm…
  • Thank you for everything---especially for believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself. Sometimes that was what convinced me to keep trying even when I felt hopeless…
  • I can’t express how grateful I am to have had people like you in my life. You have all helped me more than I could have ever dreamed possible. Every day I looked forward to coming in to partial to see your smiling faces, and your kindness has brightened the hardest of days…
  • Not only did CEDC teach me how to beat my eating disorder, but you also taught me how to be a good person, how to help other people, and listen to them….Thank you all for making me ME again.
