About Peaceful Meadows Recovery Center

Mission Statement:

We wish to provide a safe place for women and girls who are struggling with an eating disorder while providing physical, emotional, and spiritual healing in a conservative Christian setting.

What is an eating disorder?

The academic definition of an eating disorder is: any range of psychological disorders characterized by abnormal or disturbed eating habits or patterns that emerge as an outward sign of an inward struggle or disturbance. It is an all-consuming, life threatening disorder. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating are the most common eating disorders. Other eating disorders include rumination disorder and aviodant/restrictant food intake.

The treatment of an eating disorder is an intense journey that involves three key parts of the victim’s life. Successful treatment includes physical, psychological, and spiritual guidance.

What is Peaceful Meadows Recovery Center?

Many of our young people become confused and spiritually misguided when exposed to the secular treatment centers that are available. Peaceful Meadows is a recovery center aiming to provide treatment that is grounded in God’s Word and supports Anabaptist values. It is secluded among the rolling hills of Geneva, New York. The facility has a ten-patient capacity and works closely with the plain churches.

Our goal is for treatment that includes physical and emotional therapy as well as psychological and spiritual guidance to work through the layers involved in finding freedom for our patients, working alongside medical specialists and dietitians. We offer Equine-assisted therapy (EAT), which encompasses a range of treatment that involves activities with horses to promote physical and mental health. If a patient becomes medically unstable, we will work with Strong’s Hospital’s eating disorder unit in Rochester to stabilize the patient before they return to our facility.

We believe that successful treatment is possible. Through the support of our Anabaptist churches, we can work together to help these hurting people lead successful lives and find freedom from the grips of eating disorders.
