Our Homestead

Eating disorder treatment in Durham, NC

Opened in 2006, our original location is in rural Durham, North Carolina. Here we provide inpatient residential eating disorder treatment for women in a 16-bed craftsman-style farmhouse. The farmhouse is close to nature, sitting on ten acres of forested land, and it provides a serene and tranquil space for our clients to heal and grow. Being among the trees allows our clients to slow down and connect with nature. Some clients enjoy the swing on our front porch and others busy themselves in the garden. Some take in a book in the screened-in porch, and other clients take walks in the woods. Wildlife can be seen flitting around the surrounding woods, and one can sometimes hear the neighing of the horses next door. Upon leaving the farmhouse, one can come across local farms and farmer’s markets, strawberry fields, art museums, shopping, gardens, and a number of local universities. The large, comfortable, home-like setting in the midst of the rural country provides an excellent place to step away from the stress of life and focus on healing and recovery.

Our Estate
