“EDCMT truly saved my life. The combination of individual therapy, nutritional services, and group therapy provided direct support, accountability, and a community with which I could share my struggles and successes. I would not have grown into the healthy individual I am today without it.” EDCMT Patient
Our experienced team of multidisciplinary clinicians takes an evidence-based and holistic approach to care, seeking to treat not just eating disorder behaviors, but also the root cause. We guide our patients to address their stressors, moving beyond disordered coping to free them to live wholeheartedly. Program services include a combination of individual, family, and group psychotherapy, nutrition counseling and rehabilitation, psycho-education, and supervised meal encounters.
The treatment team consists of an attending physician (psychiatrist), advanced-degree licensed therapists, registered dietitians, registered nurses, milieu therapists, and administrators. We strive to empower our patients with newfound resiliency and skills they can use the rest of their lives.
“At EDCMT you realize that no one suffers alone and that there is a way out of the pain you have felt for so long. Without the help of the intensive outpatient program, I would be in a very different place today. I am incredibly grateful for the people who guided my journey toward recovery.” EDCMT Patient
Sometimes, the need to refer a patient for eating disorder treatment is clear. Other times, a person’s unique combination of signs and symptoms can make diagnosis more challenging. Starting with a conversation between your team and ours will help us all determine:
● The likelihood an eating disorder exists in a given patient.
● The intensity of the treatment program that will most likely meet the patient’s needs.
● Extenuating circumstances you may be aware of that can help us better serve your patient.

Contact us at 406.451.7370 to talk more about how we can assist you and your clients, or fax us a face sheet with your most recent visit note to 406.571.7956. We will then reach out to the referred patient to schedule an initial call.
When a new patient enters our program, we begin with a thorough three step assessment process. The intake assessment underpins our recommendation for treatment level of care. Your patient can then make an informed decision about the recommended program level of care. During the initial assessment, patients complete several intake forms including a release of medical information form, allowing us to update you on their progress through our treatment program.
At EDCMT, we place our patients into specific levels of care based on the unique needs of each person. We offer partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient programs.
For out-of-town adult patients who need a place to stay during the course of their treatment, our spacious and attractive lodging facility is located within walking distance from EDCMT’s two locations.

“At EDCMT, I have a community of support, shoulders to cry on and ears to listen to me when my mind is just spinning. I have hope poured into me through the smiles of my providers and other people ahead of me in the program.”- EDCMT Patient
