Our Texas based eating disorder treatment center has been in operation for 25 years. During this time, Walker Wellness has helped thousands of courageous adults, adolescents and children, successfully overcome the devastating effects of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder  compulsive overeating and emotional distress. What sets us apart from other facilities is our unique ability to provide totally individualized treatment, specifically designed by our treatment team for each client. We believe there is no “typical” client, and that complex issues have unique solutions. Group based treatment programs are ineffective for long term eating disorder recovery because crucial issues are not adequately addressed. Thus, leaving the patient vulnerable for relapse (the highest risk four to nine months after treatment). Additional benefits of individualized treatment are flexible scheduling (so treatment doesn’t interfere with busy lifestyles), and patient/parent collaboration. With our extensive variety clinical services, facilities at Cooper Aerobics Center and highly experienced clinicians, Walker Wellness provides superior care for those struggling with an eating disorder.

“The Walker Wellness Clinic has designed an amazing program. I will always be grateful for being challenged in a loving supportive environment. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, I honestly thought I would never overcome my eating disorder, but Walker gave my life back.

We recognize that individuals are unique so we place more emphasis on individual psychotherapy, nutrition therapy and physiological education along with group, family, and adjunct therapy. Our clinical services offered by our professional treatment team are compatible with the country’s leading multidisciplinary treatment facilities. As a result, we offer one of the most comprehensive and clinical outpatient programs available.

Our treatment goal is to help the patient to become a rational, productive happyperson, to help her develop a high level of self-esteem and a harmonyof thinking and emotion. Our emphasis is not only on symptom removal, but onthe development of the psychological and practical tools necessary for successful living.

Cost Effective

We provide an inexpensive alternative to inpatient programs for patients who are medically stable without compromising clinical care. In addition, we offer aftercare programs for patients recently discharged from a hospital or a residential program.

Time Effective

Our philosophy is to provide an environment that allows patients to maintain their current lifestyle such as continuing their extracurricular, academic and/or occupational functioning. Therefore, we offer partial day, evening hours and a weekender program to accommodate a productive lifestyle. We encourage patients to participate in scheduling their own clinical program, and patients may choose from a menu of adjunct therapies such as art therapy, music therapy and cooking classes.

Clinically Effective

We objectively measure energy expenditure, nutritional intake, body composition, and resting metabolic rate to determine an accurate physiological status. Therefore, the patient’s current physiological condition, nutrition requirements, and healthy weight range is established based a number of individualized assessments to avoid guess work, an excessive weight gain, and uncertainty. In addition, comprehensive psychological testing is used to identify the underlying causes of the eating disorder at the onset of treatment and throughout the course of treatment to objectively measure progress.

Comprehensive, Caring, and Compassionate

Unlike most treatment facilities we maintain your confidentiality. Walker Wellness Clinic does not release any personal information about your patient care without your consent (i.e., reasons for depression/anxiety/eating disorder as well as medical, personal, and family issues).

“I just wanted to thank you so much for this opportunity. I honestly never thought I’d be able to say that Walker Wellness has changed my life, but it has. I feel like an incredibly different person and forsomeone who has been emotionless for years with an eating disorder, I can actually cry thinking about how far I’ve come. When I talked with Philip on the phone before I came toWalker Wellness, I knew that I had found my match. Every other treatment center I called scared me and I could find a 100 reasons why I shouldn’t go. Read More +

But your approach at Walker is so different and unique,and for once in my life of my eating disorder I saw hope and thepossibility for someone to work with me. I had always felt so different and like no one understood me or where I was coming from, so isolation was perfect, but you and your treatment team have proven me wrong and made me realize all the possibilities out there for me. So all in all,thank you with all my heart and I just wanted to let you know what a special gift you and the rest of The Walker Wellness team have and especially, how many lives you have impacted.”.
