Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders Launches New Anxiety Disorders Program for Teens and Children

Nation's Leading Eating Disorders Treatment Center Now Offers Help For

Those with Anxiety Disorders

PHOENIX, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders, the nation's leading and largest inpatient treatment center for women and girls suffering from eating disorders, has launched a new treatment program for anxiety disorders. The inpatient program will treat adolescents and children suffering from: obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); panic disorder; specific phobia; social anxiety disorder; separation anxiety disorder; generalized anxiety disorder; anxiety disorder NOS (not otherwise specified); and OCD spectrum disorders, such as body dysmorphic disorder or trichotillomania.

"Four to five million children and adolescents struggle with anxiety disorders," said Amy Spahr, Executive Clinical Director, at Remuda Programs for Eating Disorders. "We have been extremely successful in helping thousands of girls and women overcome eating disorders for almost 18 years. During this time, thousands of our young patients have entered treatment with an anxiety disorder and we've had great success in treating those issues as well."

The minimum stay is 60 days for Remuda's Anxiety Disorders Program. This time in treatment is needed to stop negative behaviors, address critical issues and help patients and their families. All therapies occur within a cognitive behavioral framework, are based on Biblical Christianity and include:

-- Exposure with response prevention therapy

-- Didactic presentations

-- Skills groups

-- Equine and canine therapy

-- Art therapy

-- Challenge course and recreation groups

-- Movement and relaxation therapy

-- Daily chapels, providing non-denominational Biblical teachings

-- Spiritual growth groups

Parents are encouraged to meet their daughter's treatment team at admission. This helps Remuda's professionals gain understanding of family issues and possible familial background of the disorder. During the patient's stay, parents participate in weekly therapeutic telephone sessions with their daughter and her therapist. Half-way through treatment, the entire family meets at Remuda for two to three days of education, process groups and counseling.

Remuda's programs and ranch settings are different from the traditional, institutional format offered at hospitals and clinics. Remuda's programs offer a balanced, multi-disciplinary team approach that is designed to treat the whole person and meet her unique medical, nutritional, psychological, and spiritual needs.

"We look forward to offering our anxiety disorders program to teens and girls who are in need of inpatient treatment," adds Spahr. "Remuda has long practiced treating the individual biologically, psychologically, socially and spiritually. We bring to this program years of success and specific treatment tailored to each individual."
