Specialty Adolescent Inpatient Eating Disorder Treatment in the San Francisco Bay Area

Eating disorders are complex mental illnesses often accompanied by serious medical complications. People with eating disorders struggle with malnutrition, severe disturbances in perception of weight, shape, and body image, and emotional challenges such as anxiety and mood disorders that can affect overall quality of life and well-being.


We believe that eating disorders are rooted in and driven by anxiety and profound disruptions to the sufferers’ sense of self. Our program is based in Exposure and Response Prevention and designed upon a foundation of evidence based approaches and current best practices in eating disorder treatment. We believe that with specialty treatment and family involvement there is hope for full recovery and living a life of meaning and connectedness.

Our Programs

We offer personalized and gender-inclusive eating disorder inpatient psychiatric treatment for the challenges of adolescence and are committed to providing culturally competent care for our patients and their families.

Reasons Eating Disorder Center at Fremont Hospital provides acute psychiatric stabilization and intensive therapeutic interventions and treatment for adolescents 12-17 with a primary eating disorder diagnosis. We also provide services for co-occurring anxiety and mood disorders, trauma, substance abuse, and other psychiatric concerns. We specialize in the treatment of Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders.

For Families

Families matter to us. At Reasons, we understand that eating disorders affect the whole family and we want to help families learn how to parent a child in recovery. We view families as partners in recovery and provide education, skills, support, respect and care.
