Passionate About Your Eating Disorder Therapy and Recovery
The therapists and staff at Fairhaven Treatment Center are committed to delivering personalized eating disorder therapy and treatment to help you reclaim a life of joy and develop the tools necessary for a lifetime of recovery.
An eating disorder is a chronic and complex condition. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma and attachment disorder, or a history of addiction or chemical dependency are common co-occurring conditions of an eating disorder. Fairhaven Treatment Center specializes in treating eating disorders and the trauma and attachment disorder using evidence-based treatment approaches. At Fairhaven, we are also skilled at identifying and treating anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and substance use disorder that often contribute to the complexity of the eating disorder.
Our clients come to Fairhaven for a residential eating disorders treatment experience that goes beyond symptom control. We provide a residential and outpatient treatment experience designed to help clients establish a healthy relationship with food and at the same time, compassionately approach the anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, trauma, attachment disorder, and co-occurring addictions and substance use disorders to help our clients find their path to complete recovery.
We treat our clients like the unique and inspiring individuals they are, instead of a condition or illness. Our staff is here to help every step of the way, no matter where you are in the recovery process.

The following poem was written by a client in thanks to Fairhaven’s Founder, Dr. Teri McCann, and treatment team:
Evolution of a Second Act
Hours and hours spent learning to heal
Practicing honing building your skill
Riches to share
All with a vision of your way to care
Your talent and toil brought you this path
An opportunity to share your craft
Ethics standards a code you surpassed
New methods combined with foundations of past
And so you set forth on a healing venue
The deposits you made have brought this to you
Fragile lives to rebuild
A fortune you offer for others to glean
For those who come will Truly be seen
