Eating Disorders Program

The experts at Brandywine Hospital effectively treat men and women, ages 13 and older, in a positive environment with 24-hour inpatient support. The program is under the medical supervision of psychiatrist Michael Pertschuk, MD, who has decades of experience treating people with eating disorders. Our specialty trained team incorporates the latest, evidence-based approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy and medicine management if necessary. Our goal is to work with you to address symptoms, treat underlying conditions, and find successful ways to break the cycle of disordered eating.
