HEALTHY EATING AND LIVING DISORDERS
The Healthy Eating And Living (HEAL) Eating Disorders Program at GenPsych is a highly effective, research-based program specifically designed to help adults and adolescents suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and eating disorders not otherwise specified. Patients are provided with interventions to decrease eating disorder behaviors, normalize eating patterns, and improve coping skills.
Eating disorders are complex medical conditions affecting both physical and psychological health. The consequences are often widespread and can negatively impact relationships, mood, self-esteem, and everyday life. Prior to admission, each patient undergoes a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation to determine the appropriate level of care.
Education and support facilitates recovery from eating disorders and includes groups such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Emotion regulation, Relapse Prevention, MultiFamily/Support Group Therapy, and Body Image. The highly qualified GenPsych team also offers education, support and therapeutic services for family members. We work closely with primary care physicians, behavioral healthcare providers, employers, schools, and family members as needed to ensure continuity of care.
Please note: The Eating Disorder Programs are offered in our Brick and Livingston locations only

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“I’ve been to other treatment facilities in NJ and have been in and out of hospitals. This was the first time I actually felt heard and respected.”
“It was a comfortable atmosphere, the docs were good and the food was pretty great too. They order from a local pizza place.”
“The people there were cool. You have to turn in your phone during group but I got used to it. I was suicidal before but now I’m not. I’d go back if I had to.”
“Finally, I have therapists that actually listen to me. I would recommend GenPsych to anyone who has tried other facilities and haven’t gotten results.”
“There were ups and downs and sometimes I wasn’t the easiest person to deal with, but they were patient with me and explained the process all the way through. The groups were awesome too!”
