There are many challenges and successes along an individual’s path to full recovery from an eating disorder. That’s why our program, which includes inpatient hospitalization, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient services, has proven success for adults, adolescents and children. By providing our patients with the care they need during each stage of their treatment, we are assisting them in making a full recovery.
It is our core belief that an individual is more than just their symptoms. They are a person — mind, body and spirit. When they enter our doors, our team of specialists is there to evaluate them and get to know them on a personal level. We find out all we can about each person’s illness, medical and psychiatric history. We also need to know is they have co-occurring diseases, if they are taking medications and if their family or friends are on board for their journey. It is also important to know if they have been in treatment before and if so, what was effective and what they hope to get from treatment.
Our treatment programs are tailored for each client to meet their individual needs. The treatment will generally focus on the following points:
Once a person is admitted, we have a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, dietitians, counselors, therapists, and mental health counselors who work together to prepare his or her individualized treatment plan. The treatment plan addresses the patient’s medical, psychiatric, behavioral and spiritual needs. If the patient has more than one co-occurring disorder(s), the conditions are treated as well.
We treat our clients with complete privacy and discretion. Our in-patient treatment programs, which normally last four to eight weeks depending on the individual needs of each client, are usually followed by ongoing aftercare to ensure a lasting recovery.
Before and during treatment, patients are assigned a therapist to work together with their outside providers. If patients don’t already have outpatient providers, the therapist will give them referrals. After the patient’s discharge, the therapist will follow up with the outside providers to check up on the patient’s status. We also patients to access resources outside of the care we offer, such as the support of family, friends and others who can aid them during their treatment and recovery.
