Outpatient Services in West Virginia

The WVU Disordered Eating Center of Charleston (DECC)

This center is an interprofessional outpatient treatment program that provides services for youth and adults with disordered eating and clinical eating disorders. DECC does not provide any type of weight loss treatment, since this is misaligned with all evidence-based and best practice treatment approaches for people with eating disorders. After all, intentional restrictive dieting can cause or exacerbate disordered eating behavior.
