Avalon Hills Eating Disorder Treatment Center is for Adult & Teen Females Suffering from Anorexia & Bulimia. The Avalon Hills eating disorder treatment center helps female adolescents and adults overcome eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia by changing the way they view their bodies and their surroundings. They believe that every girl needs three things to rise above the negative beliefs and cultural influences that contribute to the development of eating disorders. They believe the three cornerstones for positive change are: New Information, New Insights, New Experiences.

Along with her husband, Gary Roberts, she is one of the original founders of Avalon Hills. The core philosophy underlying the Avalon Hills eating disorder treatment center first originated out of her thesis and doctoral research (Quakenbush, Stein & Doty, 1996; 1998), which focused on females who overcame eating disorders, and the reported factors that facilitated their recovery. She completed her Ph.D. in Clinical, Counseling, and School Psychology at Utah State University in 1998.

Since first opening the doors of Avalon Hills in March 2003, Dr. Quakenbush-Roberts has been committed to continually improving the treatment programs of Avalon Hills, while simultaneously evolving the organization into a thriving, dynamic organization.

Avalon Hills tailors each resident’s treatment program to her individual needs, using both scientific and holistic treatment approaches. Each activity is designed to help residents put the things they learn here into the context of their everyday lives, so they can apply them to the pressures they will face when they return home. Avalon Hills remains committed to individualized, comprehensive programs for all clients we serve. Their eating disorder clinic is located in Utah.
