The Women’s Eating Disorder Recovery Center at The Ranch is a place of nurturing and healing. The program is surrounded by beauty in nature, in a tranquil and peaceful environment. The living arrangements are in a homelike setting with comfortable bedrooms and accommodations attending to the women we serve. The dining area and kitchen provides a view to the serenity and tranquility offered by area wildlife in Middle Tennessee.

The Ranch offers individualized treatment for women ages 18 and older who suffer from anorexia, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorders, as well as other presenting co-occurring disorders.
