Day Program/Partial Hospitalization
This outpatient program is suited for adolescent and adult women ages 15 and up who require a need for support and supervision during meals and individual treatment for underlying issues that cause the eating disorder. Time away from the program during nights and weekends allows for the client to practice their skills and dietary challenges learned in the program.
Evening Intensive Outpatient Treatment
This program is appropriate for clients who are medically stable and are still participating in school or work but require more than one weekly dietary and therapeutic session. This program is often used to follow the Day Outpatient Program or Residential levels of care so they can receive additional support to diminish eating disorder behaviors.
Outpatient therapy is designed for adolescent and adult men and women who need support and guidance but can manage eating disorder behaviors and thoughts in a well supported home environment. The range of clients varies from patients just beginning the recovery process to patients well into the journey of recovery.
For most people, the holiday season is a wonderful time of year. It is often a time of family reunion, socializing, and celebration – a time when families, friends, and coworkers come together to share good will and good food. Yet, for those who suffer with eating disorders, this is often the worst time of the year.
