Eating Recovery Center Denver - Franklin St

One of ERC’s original and most prominent locations for the treatment of eating disorders in children and adolescents, Pathlight-ERC Juniper in Denver, Colorado provides 36-beds for Residential and Inpatient Programs, as well as a 16-patient Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Program.

Housed in a beautiful, state-of-the art facility, we like to call this our newly updated “patient-picked” center. Everything from the hanging art to the color of paint on the walls was voted and chosen on from current and former patients to better provide a calming atmosphere. For spaces that are hardest for patients, such as bathroom and dining spaces, we renovated to provide quieter flooring in the hallways and noise-reducers in dining rooms, as well as outdoor-themed and sensory-nurturing natural lighting in the bathrooms.

Founded by a team of leading experts whose goal is to fuse evidence-based findings and innovation to create a comprehensive center of healing, we also have on staff two full time teachers, two education specialists, and a parent classroom to better serve our residential and inpatient children and adolescents.
