Deciding to enter treatment can be overwhelming. We can help. By calling Seeds of Hope and requesting an assessment, we will work with you to help you begin your recovery journey.

To become a new client at Seeds of Hope, simply call and ask for an initial eating disorder evaluation. We accept most private insurance, so please have your insurance card in hand when you call. You may specify the location where you’d like to be seen or we can help you identify which location is closest to you.

Your first appointment

Your first appointment will last about 60-90 minutes. A trained therapist will meet with you individually to discuss the Seeds of Hope program and address your primary concerns and make recommendations, which may include scheduling appointments on a regular basis. Follow up appointments could be individual, group or a combination of both. Goals will be developed based on the person’s unique needs.


All information discussed is completely confidential and cannot be released until/unless a patient signs a release.

Getting eating disorder help for your adolescent teen

Our locally renowned treatment programs are available at several locations; please call (610) 644-6464. To start, schedule an eating disorder assessment for your adolescent teen. During this appointment, a trained therapist will meet first with your child, and then the therapist will consult alone with the parent(s) or guardian(s) who attend the appointment. By the end of the assessment, the therapist will make recommendations for treatment. The recommendations may include ongoing individual counseling with weekly or biweekly appointments, an adolescent-specific treatment and educational group or a combination of both.

Cost of treatment

Cost of treatment varies depending on your medical insurance coverage. If you’d like to know how much your session will cost, the best way to find out is to call your insurance company directly; there is a phone number on the back of your insurance card. You can also discuss this during your first appointment.
