Eating Disorder Treatment Center

Residential and outpatient eating disorder treatment for adults and adolescents of all genders in Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee

At our Aster Springs eating disorder facilities, we believe people aren’t defined by their eating disorders. Each client we work with is unique and valued for who they are as a person. At our eating disorder treatment centers, we offer tailored treatment for adults and adolescents of all genders, ages 12 years and older (may vary by location). We take a whole-person, compassionate approach to care to help each client take the next step toward lasting recovery.

Please note: We do not accept Medicare or Medicaid.

Eating Disorder Treatment at Aster Springs

Founded as part of the Odyssey Eating Disorder Network, our eating disorder treatment center is unique in our ability to work with clinicians, leaders, and experts nationally to ensure the care provided is evidence-based and industry-leading. Whether clients enter our intensive residential treatment or one of our outpatient programs, our clinical team will help them get the treatment they need to have the life they want. Also, our low client-to-clinician ratio ensures that each client receives individualized care.

Our Eating Disorder Recovery Center

Our eating disorder treatment facilities have highly experienced and credentialed staff who use
proven, evidence-based therapies to help each client successfully achieve long-term recovery from eating disorders. Our clinical team provides multidisciplinary treatment that uses medical, nutritional, psychological, and psychiatric interventions in collaboration with each client’s community of clinical team, family, and other social supports.

At our eating disorder treatment center, we offer tailored programming, which is designed to meet the needs of each client. Treatment includes psychotherapy groups, individual therapy, nutrition education, meal planning, family therapy, medical or medication management, and aftercare planning and assistance.

Our eating disorder therapists incorporate the following treatment modalities into individualized treatment plans as appropriate:

Levels of Care

At Aster Springs, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. Our continuum of care ensures clients can step up or down into the appropriate level of care with a cohesive, dedicated treatment team that works with our trusted clinical partners to help transition clients to traditional outpatient and aftercare programs. Our full continuum of care is offered in central Virginia and coming in early 2023, we’re expanding to an additional eight beds.

What Our Clients, Their Families, and Clinical Partners Are Saying​

“I've never felt more secure leaving a treatment center than while discharging from Aster Springs. The staff made me feel seen while going through recovery. I had a voice in how treatment looked and felt comfortable communicating to my treatment team. As I leave Aster Springs, I now know how to navigate my ED and will be constantly looking back at all the wonderful advice given to me by staff (who are some of the best people I've ever met).”

Frequently Asked Questions

The first step is to call us at (804) 415-7603  to speak with a knowledgeable and compassionate team member. They can answer any questions regarding admissions and will guide you through the next steps including completing assessments, reviewing payment options, discussing admission dates, and ultimately working with our clinical team to determine the appropriate level of care needed and if Aster Springs is the right fit.

Aster Springs offers multiple payment options, and we ensure that each client has a financial plan that works for them prior to admission. Currently, we are in-network with Aetna, Anthem, Humana, MultiPlan, Optima Health, and UnitedHealthcare and affiliates, including Optum, UMR, etc.

Our financial team takes the time to help each client understand their benefits and cost of care so there aren’t any surprises. This is vital so our clients don’t feel burdened while they’re focusing on treatment. However, we do not accept Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE.

Family involvement is an integral part of the recovery process, and we work to accommodate visitation as much as possible. We also encourage regular family therapy sessions in addition to family workshops. We strongly believe that recovery is a team effort!

Every client is different, and the length of their program depends on their progress in treatment. Another factor is the insurance provider’s willingness to authorize treatment. Our team will do our best to advocate for the appropriate level and duration of care that will provide the best opportunity for sustained recovery.
