Our Mission
Treat To Outcome
Avalon Hills has a dynamic culture and “Treat to Outcome” is at its heart. We pioneered this concept to stop the revolving door of care among clients who so often cycle in and out of Eating Disorder treatment. Treat to Outcome is a commitment to positive treatment outcomes that are sustainable when our clients return home. This commitment to sustainable success, is treating to outcome.

Parents of a Patient

Avalon Hills gave life back to our daughter. They filled us with hope & confidence that we would all get through this. Today, our daughter is doing amazing. When we look at her, it’s really hard to believe that she was ever so sick. 

She eats fully intuitively, she has no eating disorder behaviors. It’s essentially like the eating disorder was taken off the slate. It’s just not an issue. It’s not something we deal with on a daily basis. She has developed so many coping skills that she uses all the time that she learned at Avalon Hills.

Applied Neuroscience

Think Different About Recovery

Neurofeedback has assisted many of our clients to function well in life without medication. Working with leading figures in neurofeedback, Avalon Hills has pioneered the application of this technique to help those with Eating Disorders. Neurofeedback is completely non-invasive, and involves tailoring brain exercises to help people learn to regulate their emotions and gain control over their attention and focus. They’re in control of retraining their brain.

Different Areas Of The Brain

The EEG is a measure of the electrical activity generated by the combined firing of neurons, specialized brain cells. Long used as a valuable medical tool in neurology, the EEG is now being used in behavioral and mental health fields. Quantitative EEG permits the analysis of the electrical activity being generated in 19 different areas of the brain by comparing them to a normative database to determine if there is too much or too little activation.

Groundbreaking Studies

It was long thought that the brain was not plastic and existing patterns of activity could not be substantially changed. However, groundbreaking studies in the mid-1980s demonstrated that the structure and functioning of the brain could be altered by experience. The application of applied neuroscience techniques is aimed at helping change the underlying patterns of activity in the brain to reduce the struggle an individual faces in their recovery from an Eating Disorder.


Receive Mental Health Treatment

Avalon Hills employs the use of qEEG with every admission to their Eating Disorder program. Also, Avalon Hills has accumulated the largest library of these scans for patients with Eating Disorders, and uses them to monitor for response to treatment. The activation patterns are displayed on “brain maps” which can be used to help clients to see how their brains are operating and how they can change this to work better.
About Us
How We Are Different
Clients at Avalon Hills will receive one of the most in-depth psychotherapeutic assessments available in the world. So many therapies today focus primarily on Eating Disorder symptoms. These are obviously very important. But Eating Disorders symptoms, while dangerous, are not the heart of the illness. They are attempts to deal with underlying problems, which may have gone undetected. Our assessments are more in-depth, are more individual, and go deeper into the cause of the Eating Disorder than any other treatment center in the country.
Treat To Outcome
Founder’s Message To You
I developed an eating disorder at age 10, but I was really convinced that I was broken. If people get adequate treatment they will get better. I got better. I know that the miracle can happen. We don’t simply treat eating disorder symptoms. Avalon Hills is really invested in long term outcome. It’s hard work and it takes time, but our patients recover. You will be well taken care of here. You will have sustainable success.
