Using an approach that includes more than treatment, Aloria Health in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, gives people the tools to become their best selves. Aloria provides care for individuals with food and body related issues as well as all eating disorder diagnoses including anorexia, binge eating disorder, body dysmorphia, bulimia, compulsive overeating, and orthorexia, as well as co-occurring issues. By valuing individuality and remaining comfortable with complexity, Aloria’s care integrates the social determinants of well being while addressing “how” a person is experiencing the present moment and what that information means to the context of that person’s life. Successful care results in an increased capacity to tolerate previously unbearable sensations within the present moment. Aloria Health is now accepting admissions for residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient care.
