About Seeds
of Hope

Seeds of Hope is an eating disorder clinic with locations throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. We also have a residential treatment center in Lake Ariel, PA. We understand how eating disorders come in various forms:

We also know the recovery process looks different for everyone, so we provide individualized care to each one of our clients.

As a service line under the Onward Behavioral Health umbrella, we provide quality behavioral health care specializing in eating disorder treatment. Our full continuum of residential and outpatient services includes partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, individual therapy, and weekly meal support groups. Seeds of Hope’s unique approach is to treat eating disorders by treating the whole person and addressing underlying issues that can contribute to disordered eating.

Our Team

Our team consists of licensed therapists, registered dietitians, and a certified physician assistant. We use a variety of treatments that address the connection between mind, body, and spirit.
