The inpatient programs are 24 hour, seven day a week structured and intensive treatment programs. This includes both stabilization and longer-term intensive therapeutic interventions to address eating disordered behaviors and co-occurring disorders. Clients in these programs will receive treatment from a multi-disciplinary team with a focus on the individual's unique psychiatric, emotional and nutritional goals.
Our medical staff and professional nurses monitor vital signs, laboratory test results, effects from malnourishment and eating disordered behaviors. Our clinical team works with the client and family to develop a treatment plan that addresses the unique needs of the individual.
Clients can wear their own clothes and bring items that will make their room feel more like home, such as comforters, pillows or pictures of family and friends. There is no minimum length of stay required; however patients stay from a few days to several weeks, depending on their individualized treatment plan.
Partial Hospitalization Program:
This treatment program is a structured, six day a week treatment program that meets from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. -3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. It is designed to ensure continued success in recovery from the eating disorder with a focus on the individual's emotional and nutritional goals while attending therapeutic and educational groups. This program can be a transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment or clients can enter directly into this program from the outpatient setting while still living at home or in a local hotel near the hospital.
Intensive Outpatient Program:
This treatment program is a structured, 3.5 hour, three day a week program, a transition from the partial hospitalization program or for those clients that need more than outpatient therapy. Clients can live at home and be enrolled in school or work while attending this program. The program meets Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The evening meal and individualized sessions with a dietitian are included in this program. We recommend that clients in the intensive outpatient program participate in individual outpatient therapy in the community and we will provide referrals as needed.

Discharge and Aftercare Planning:
Our skilled team of case managers will work with the client and therapist to determine the most appropriate care needed after leaving our treatment programs. We will work with the clients' outpatient providers to ensure a smooth transition back into the community.
We place a strong emphasis on involving the family in treatment. Each client is assigned a family therapist who conducts a weekly family therapy session. Additionally, families are encouraged to attend a weekly multi-family group on Tuesday evenings at 5 p.m. We believe "Family" can consist of any support system the patient identifies such as friends or colleagues. We also offer family telephone sessions for those clients whose families do not live locally.
