Eating Disorder Treatment Programs At Casa Palmera Earn Joint Commission's Gold Seal Of Approval

Del Mar, California (PressExposure) October 09, 2009 -- The Joint Commission recognizes the treatment programs offered by Casa Palmera, including its Eating Disorder Treatment program, through the awarding of the organization’s Gold Seal of Approval. While there are hundreds, if not thousands, of facilities in the US that offer programs aimed at Anorexia treatment and helping patients overcome related illnesses, Casa Palmera’s unique, holistic approach and experienced staff combined with first class premises have led to unparalleled success and the endorsement of patients and their families.

The Joint Commission is a non profit organization which accredits and certifies over 16,000 US health care programs, with a mandate to ensure patients have access to high quality, safe and effective treatment options. Joint Commission accreditation means that the Bulimia Treatment program, as well as all other offerings at Casa Palmera are of the highest quality and reflect a commitment to meeting or exceeding performance standards.

With a campus that boasts a tranquil California setting, canary palms, meditation gardens, a professional quality fitness center and an organic vegetable garden, patients at Casa Palmera will find themselves in the ideal setting for successful recovery. Whether seeking help for Eating Disorder Treatment, or struggling to recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the beautiful 37,000 square foot facility offers first class accommodations in a choice of private or semiprivate residence rooms.

A professional and caring staff is considered a cornerstone of the programs. Casa Palmera employs such a wide range of professions that its staff list reads like the program at a medical career fair. Among the team are medical doctors, psychologists, holistic health practitioners, registered nurses, registered dietitians, psychotherapists, yoga instructors, acupuncturists and a range of therapists. Each member of the staff is a caring, experienced practitioner and the wide variety of fields represented reflects the holistic approach used in Bulimia Treatment and the other programs offered.

Casa Palmera’s vision represents a real alternative to patients and their families, with its emphasis on holistic treatment to achieve total healing. There are four core elements in the program that support patients on their road to recovery:

Medical/Psychotherapy, employing the latest medical approaches. Lifestyle, emphasizing fitness, stress management, healthy eating and spiritual reflection.

Complementary Medicine, supporting recovery through the use of yoga, Tai Chi, acupuncture, homeopathy and other alternative treatments. Environmental, ensuring patients are able to recovery in luxurious comfort in a safe environment with 24/7 nursing care.

Given the advantages for patients undergoing Anorexia treatment at this facility, the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal accreditation makes perfect sense. Potential patients and the families of those who would benefit from treatment are encouraged to contact the Casa Palmera to explore treatment options.
