At Rader Programs, we want to assure the millions of individuals suffering from eating disorders like anorexia, compulsive overeating and bulimia of three vital facts:
It’s not your fault. You are not alone. We can help.
We understand that eating disorders are controlling your life, and they’ve made food the centerpiece of your existence. We are well-acquainted with the feelings of isolation, depression, guilt and shame that you are experiencing. Whether your eating disorder causes you to starve yourself, excessively exercise, abuse substances, or binge and purge, there is a common truth: you are struggling with a dangerous disorder that, if left untreated, could be fatal.
However, we know from experience that freedom from eating disorders and a lifetime of recovery can be achieved. The cornerstone of our philosophy is that your recovery depends upon recognizing the underlying causes of your eating disorder, and, with professional guidance, taking action to facilitate necessary lifestyle changes.
It’s our belief that symptoms of eating disorders manifest as survival mechanisms, in order to help individuals cope with traumatic events as well as the stresses of daily life. We not only teach individuals about the dangers of their eating disorder behavior, but also help them to find new, positive techniques that they can use to help cope with pressures in their lives.
Unlike most other eating disorder treatment programs, Rader Programs does not employ a punishment and reward system. This is because we view such systems as ineffective. We believe that if you have suffered from an eating disorder you have already spent too much time punishing yourself. Instead, our programs focus on your individual needs. We have experience treating anorexia, bulimia and food addiction, and we know that each person we treat has different eating disorder causes, triggers, behaviors and complications. That’s why our programs explore every aspect of your life. We don’t simply attack a single aspect of your disorder or just emphasize dietary changes. Instead, our programs encompass individual, group, and family counseling; exercise training; nutritional guidance; and educational sessions in order to put you on the road to a lifetime of recovery.
Who We Treat
At Rader Programs, we have more than 30 years of experience offering unparalleled eating disorders treatment to those in need. We believe that individuals suffering from an eating disorder should be treated in the least restrictive environment possible. We therefore offer services to individuals that correlate with their identified clinical needs, which vary from person to person. We therefore help individuals develop a treatment plan for anorexia, compulsive overeating, bulimia, and other eating disorders that is right for each individual.
We are dedicated to providing individuals with the foundation they need to stay healthy for a lifetime. To meet this goal, our interdisciplinary staff works with you to design a program that fits into your life. Our programs are always tailored to your unique needs, providing the help you need to recover. In addition to offering 24-hour care in our inpatient eating disorder facility, we offer daycare sessions to individuals looking for a structured daily eating disorder treatment program, but able to function within their normal home setting.
We also offer a continued care program to patients who, after completing our 24-hour or daycare program, need some extra help with organizing a healthy new lifestyle.
Our outpatient facility provides minimal disruption to patients’ daily life offering a nightly meeting per week to help treat bulimia, anorexia nervosa, compulsive overeating or binge eating beyond our clinic’s walls.
Rader Programs is also committed to helping patients rebuild and maintain strong familial relationships. Our family program offers our patients weekend sessions to help patients establish strong bonds with significant others.
Our eating disorders treatment programs offer you the tools you need to experience a full and lasting recovery. Let Rader Programs help you recover today.
The Rader Eating Disorder Treatment Programs staff has provided superior clinical programs for more than 30 years. Our mission is to provide individuals who are struggling with eating disorders the individualized care that they need to triumph over their disorders and enjoy a lifetime of recovery. Eating disorders like anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder, orthorexia and compulsive overeating, can be devastating and fatal if left untreated. We want to help you survive and recover.
Our eating disorder programs provide a supportive environment for treating dysfunctional behavior. We fully comprehend the complexity of eating disorders and our interdisciplinary staff treats the medical, physical, psychological and nutritional aspects of all eating disorders. Our staff is comprised of caring and experienced professionals, many of whom are recovering from an eating disorder themselves. We work with individuals and their families to develop a program aimed at lifelong recovery.
Our admission process begins with a one-on-one assessment process. The process includes psychological and medical evaluations, exercise and nutritional assessments, and evaluations and laboratory work-ups specific to each eating disorder.
After a thorough assessment, we can develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. At Rader Programs we know that no two patients are the same. That’s why we focus on the special needs of each individual. Each individual’s treatment team meets weekly to track progress, discuss and update each patient’s treatment plan. Our team stays agile, responding to and redirecting each individual’s treatment process as needed.
Rader Programs’ multi-disciplinary approach to eating disorders treatment has been proven effective time and again. Our patients often tell us that, as a result of their programs, they were able to learn to respect themselves and form positive and successful relationships with family members and loved ones.
Many student health plans cover our programs including several plans that don't cover other eating disorders treatment programs due to our unique licensure with both the Department of Health and JCAHO. Rader Programs ensures maximization of coverage to our clients by working closely with insurance carriers, in most cases making weekly contact.
It requires a unique expertise to understand insurance coverage for eating disorders. Our business services staff has over 15 years of experience in the field. Our eating disorder insurance specialists can check your benefits confidentially. Call our counselors at 1-800-841-1515.

SHARING YOUR EATING DISORDER WITH SOMEONE Many individuals find the need, or wish to share, that they are suffering from an eating disorder with someone else, a confidant. Often, sharing your experiences with a friend or family member before or during eating disorder treatment can open the door for you to no longer suffer through the eating disorder alone.
REFERRING THERAPISTS Rader Programs works in conjunction with referring therapists to insure a smooth transition into the program. The referring therapist’s connection with Rader Programs does not end at admission but rather begins, as the referring therapist is integrated and becomes an intricate member of the treatment team.
ANOREXIA TREATMENT CENTER Without the proper treatment, anorexia nervosa can lead to severe medical complications, depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Eating disorders like anorexia can even be fatal if they go untreated.
MEDIA INFLUENCE The influence of the media on the proliferation of eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia nervosa cannot be refuted. From an early age we are bombarded with images and messages that reinforce the idea that to be happy and successful we must be thin.

LAXATIVE ABUSE Some individuals suffering from eating disorders like Anorexia, Bulimia or Compulsive Overeating misuse laxatives as a means of purging. These individuals are under the misconception that by using laxatives they can get rid of unwanted calories. Since most of the calories eaten are absorbed by the small intestine right after eating, the method of using laxatives for weight loss is actually ineffective
