Inpatient Program

The Eating Disorders Inpatient Program is based on a recovery model that addresses the psychological, physiological and socio-cultural aspects of eating disorders. The program offers a structured, individualized and multidimensional treatment approach in a nurturing, therapeutic, inpatient setting.

A variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, family systems, interpersonal psychology, and experiential have been incorporated to provide the client with a comprehensive clinical approach. The goal of the program is to assist clients on their journey toward health.

This program is one of a few inpatient programs that provide intensive individual and family psychotherapy.

Eating Disorders Partial Hospitalization Program

The Eating Disorders Partial Hospitalization Program utilizes a multi-dimensional treatment approach which allows us to address all aspects of eating disorders: medical, nutritional, psychological, biochemical and behavioral.

The Program provides a supportive environment in which clients can explore the issues, current stressors, and biochemical factors, that underlie eating disorder behaviors such as bingeing, purging, starving, compulsive exercising, and compulsive overeating.

This Program operates Monday through Friday and includes two supervised meals and a snack. Clients can be directly admitted to the program, if medically and clinically appropriate. Clients may also step down into the partial program from an inpatient setting, providing a safe transition into a lower level of care.
