Private Residential Treatment Center for women and adolescent girls who are struggling with eating disorders, addiction, depression, and trauma
How Our Treatment Program Works
Every resident at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center follows a course of treatment developed just for them. Treatment teams consider all the available knowledge about each woman’s or adolescent girl’s history. They consider relationships with friends and family, as well as desires and wishes for the future. Together, the resident and the treatment team design an individualized therapeutic program to help the resident help herself. This collaborative process gives residents a sense of investment, empowerment, and ownership of their recovery process.
We Treat the Person, Not the Symptoms
Our highly acclaimed staff recognizes how important it is to understand each woman or adolescent girl as an individual. Our all-inclusive care is the most effective and appropriate method for helping women and adolescent girls in a lasting way. Our program focuses on treating the entire self – addressing each female’s physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and social needs. Our holistic approach ultimately allows residents to achieve lifelong recovery.
Tranquil Nonhospital Campus
Treatment at Timberline Knolls is provided on our private, wooded, 43-acre campus. Unlike inpatient care, residential treatment at Timberline Knolls is set amidst a lush forested backdrop, award-winning landscaped grounds, and a number of historical buildings. Our campus’s rich outdoor atmosphere is extremely conducive to healing and allows the adolescent girls and women who seek our care to bask in breathtaking and inspiring views while participating in our programming.
We know this may be a difficult time for you and your family. There are many questions involved in understanding treatment for eating disorders, addiction, and the other co-occurring conditions we treat.
What is residential treatment?
Residential treatment is a level of care that provides round-the-clock supervision and therapeutic services in a safe and secure environment. Women and adolescent girls who receive care at our residential treatment center will live on our campus for the duration of their time in treatment. The benefits of receiving residential treatment for eating disorders, addiction, and other mental health concerns are vast.
When you receive care at a residential treatment center, you can step away from the stresses of daily life and focus all your time and energy on healing. You have the ongoing support and encouragement of knowledgeable, compassionate staff members who help you learn how to cope with and overcome your symptoms, guide you as you work toward reaching your treatment goals, encourage you during challenging times, and celebrate with you as you progress in your healing journey.
What can I expect insurance to contribute toward treatment?
Insurance companies differ in the allocations they provide for mental health treatment. Depending on your treatment needs, your insurance provider, and the insurance plan you are under, the funding you receive will vary. Timberline Knolls partners with a number of insurance providers, and our staff will work with both you and representatives from your insurance company to ensure that you receive the most coverage you are eligible for.
What distinguishes Timberline Knolls from other women-only rehabs or residential treatment centers?
Timberline Knolls stands apart from other female-only residential treatment centers and rehab facilities in that our overarching mission is to open up the path to healing in an environment that is filled with compassion and serenity. We consider the life circumstances of each woman or adolescent girl while working closely with her to make sure that her treatment plan reflects her needs, her goals for treatment, and her wishes for the future. We do not focus solely on the symptoms our residents present with; rather, we focus on the adolescent girl or woman as a whole – physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Every aspect of our programming is designed to offer care in a manner that promotes unity, self-respect, empathy, teamwork, encouragement, and unwavering support. When you choose to come to Timberline Knolls, you become part of a family that wants to help you grow, succeed, and find true healing. We are more than a treatment center. We are a safe haven. We are your home away from home. And we will do everything in our power to make sure that you feel safe, comforted, and supported as you begin your journey toward lasting healing.
How do I learn more about anorexia nervosa, bulimia, or binge-eating disorder?
Taking the time to learn more about an eating disorder that you or a loved one is struggling with is an essential part of the healing process. By understanding the signs and symptoms of anorexia, bulimia, or binge-eating disorder, you will be better prepared to make the most of treatment.
At Timberline Knolls, we are here to ensure that the women and adolescent girls who heal with us learn about the eating disorders they are suffering from so that they can learn to make healthier choices. You can gain a better understanding of the causes and effects of these disorders on our website and by participating in various psychoeducational groups and activities during your time in treatment at our center.
Where can I learn more about addiction?
Educating yourself about addiction is a vital step on the path to freedom from chemical dependency. The more you understand how alcohol and other drugs impact the body and mind, the better prepared you will be to identify optimal solutions for yourself or a loved one. At Timberline Knolls, we are proud to provide extensive information about the signs, symptoms, and effects of various forms of addiction.
Our website contains information about the types of treatment that can best prepare women and adolescent girls to overcome addiction and achieve long-term recovery.

What does a woman or adolescent girl experience during residential treatment at Timberline Knolls?
No two individuals are exactly alike, and as such, the experience of each adolescent girl or woman at Timberline Knolls will be unique to her needs. Our expert treatment team will assess your presenting symptoms and identify your innate strengths and challenges. Then we will build on those strengths by crafting a treatment plan that reflects your individual goals for recovery.
During your stay at Timberline Knolls, you will have access to a wide range of treatment modalities and supports to assist you on the road to recovery. From individual, group, family, and experiential counseling to medical support, you will have what you need to heal.
How does Timberline Knolls help women and adolescent girls who are seeking Christian treatment?
Meeting the spiritual needs of our residents is an essential element of treatment at Timberline Knolls. For women and adolescent girls who wish to have Christian principles incorporated into their personalized treatment plan, we are proud to offer a dynamic Christian treatment path. Our Christ-centered approach to recovery includes daily devotionals, multiple Christian therapy groups, informal devotional groups, Bible studies, pastoral counseling, attendance at off-campus worship services, and connections with the local Christian community.
Women and adolescent girls who participate in the Christian treatment path also have the opportunity to share their faith through expressive arts, take part in volunteer opportunities that benefit less fortunate members of the surrounding community, and work with licensed therapists whose training and experience include counseling from a biblical perspective.
