Carolina House is a residential facility dedicated to providing quality care for the treatment of eating disorders and accompanying issues, such as anxiety and depression. Clients at the Durham campus live in a home-like environment where they can get away from day-to-day stressors and, through a treatment approach that encourages self-exploration, replace self-destructive behaviors with a healthy, new way of living.

Nestled not just among the trees, but actually in one, the recently completed "treehouse" provides the quintessential setting for clients' self-exploration. The treehouse hosts a variety of programs, from yoga to tai chi, designed to help patients integrate mind and body with the ultimate goal of self-acceptance. The 569-square foot healing space includes a large yoga studio plus a separate therapy room. A serpentine entry ramp meanders through the woods in a gradual, ADA-compliant ascent to the yoga studio. Almost entirely constructed of wood, the treehouse is perfectly suited to its environment.

  • You know a place is great when you can't ever get a reservation. Such was the case with the Angus Barn, in nearby Raleigh - a place where we would have hung out for a great dinner if we'd ever gotten the chance. If you've ever been, let us know how it was!
