Get Help Now

Anna Westin House West Residential Eating Disorder Facility

The Anna Westin House West provides evidence-based care for adults in need of highly structured, intensive eating disorder treatment. Like the Anna Westin House and Anna Westin House for Adolescents, it is named in memory of Anna Westin, a Chaska woman who died in 2000 after battling an eating disorder without access to appropriate treatment.

The Anna Westin House West is a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility nestled in the peaceful Linden Hills neighborhood. All residents in our 24/7 residential eating disorder treatment program have opportunities to explore the area to practice their recovery skills, and relax on their journey to recovery. 

The Anna Westin House employs a multidisciplinary approach to eating disorder treatment, involving medical professionals, therapists, dietitians, and other specialists to provide a well-rounded care plan tailored to each individual’s needs.


Services include:

  • Contemporary homelike setting for all genders
  • Onsite 24/7 nursing supervision and medical monitoring
  • Onsite therapists, physicians, dietitians, and other professional staff
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Integrative interventions, such as yoga
  • Support for co-occurring disorders
  • Therapeutic meals and snacks with nutrition counseling and education

Eating Disorders Treated at the Anna Westin House

The Anna Westin House in Minneapolis offers a comprehensive range of personalized residential eating disorder treatment options designed to address various eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions.

For those struggling with anorexia nervosa, a condition marked by an extreme fear of weight gain and a distorted body image, the Anna Westin House provides in-depth treatment plans to guide you on the path to recovery.

We also offer specialized treatment for bulimia nervosa, a disorder characterized by cycles of binge eating followed by compensatory behaviors like self-induced vomiting, commonly known as purging, or excessive exercise to offset weight gain.

The Anna Westin House also offers support to individuals dealing with binge eating disorder, which involves episodes of excessive food consumption often triggered by negative emotional stimuli, and a lack of control over eating.

Additionally, The Anna Westin House provides care for compulsive overeating, where individuals engage in frequent episodes of excessive eating that are not driven by physical hunger, potentially leading to weight gain and other health complications.

Our Minneapolis facilities also offers treatment for conditions like OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder) and ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). If you have specific questions or concerns about your condition, we encourage you to contact us for more information.


A typical week at the Anna Westin House West

Residents participate in group sessions, a variety of individual sessions, and therapeutic meals and snacks. Sessions include psychotherapy,  nutrition, medical assessments and monitoring, psychiatric visits, and other services during the week. Each resident’s schedule is personalized to meet their specific needs.

Components of our Residential Eating Disorder Treatment Program at Anna Westin House West

Group Psychotherapy: Groups meet to share common experiences and to alleviate feelings of shame and isolation. Sharing common experiences breaks these barriers and inspires self-understanding as each person learns to identify unhealthy patterns and develop healthy alternatives. Group therapy includes CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy).

Nutrition Therapy: Individual, group and family nutrition counseling, education, and meal planning are tailored to each resident’s needs to help them interrupt symptom use, restore body health, and regain trust in their body’s ability to regulate eating. These sessions and supported therapeutic meals and snacks help restore harmony to eating patterns, develop self-care skills, and help family members better understand how to support their loved one.

Medical Care: A nurse, a physician, and/or a physician assistant evaluate and monitor each resident’s medical status.

Psychiatric Care: Our staff psychiatrists are specially trained to treat eating disorders and related co-occurring disorders. Medications may be incorporated into the treatment of the eating disorder or other related conditions.

Experiential Activities: Experiences such as cooking, grocery shopping, and practicing eating in a variety of meal situations help the individual strengthen self-expression and gain assertiveness and change behaviors.

Additional Therapies: Integrative interventions may be included in a treatment plan, as appropriate for each client. Some of these therapies include:

  • Movement Therapy: Yoga, stretching, strength work, and play activities support well-being.
  • Expressive art therapy: Creating art helps relieve anxiety, address body image issues, provide nonverbal means of expression, and assist in developing new coping and expressive skills.

Medical Care: A nursing staff, a physician, and/or a physician assistant evaluate and monitor each resident’s medical status.

Psychiatric Care: Our staff psychiatrists are specially trained to treat eating disorders and related co-occurring disorders. Medications may be incorporated into treatment of the eating disorder or other related conditions.

Experiential Activities: Community experiences such as cooking, grocery shopping, and dining at restaurants help the individual strengthen self-expression and gain assertiveness and symptom control.

Education/Schooling: For our teenage and young adult residents, we make arrangements with a student’s home district and the local school district to support their continued academic participation. Licensed teachers from St. Paul Public Schools assist with tutoring and studying.

Additional Therapies: Integrative interventions may be included in a treatment plan, as appropriate for each client. Some of these therapies include:
