Aurora’s eating disorder inpatient care program offers residential care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This program includes stabilization, intensive therapy and intervention designed to address eating disorders and any co-existing conditions. Our multi-disciplinary team works with each person in the program on three levels: psychiatric, emotional and nutritional.
Participants can wear their own clothes and bring items like comforters, pillows and photographs to make their room feel more like home.
This is a structured program that meets six days a week – 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. We focus on each person’s emotional and nutritional goals through therapy and education.
Our partial hospitalization program is often a helpful transition for patients who have recently finished inpatient treatment.
Intensive outpatient treatment for eating disorders is often the best fit for people who need more than weekly therapy sessions, or for those who have recently completed a partial hospitalization program. People in this program can live at home and go to school or work while attending therapy sessions.
The program meets Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The nightly schedule includes dinner and an individualized session with a dietitian. We recommend that people in this program also participate in regular therapy on their own, and we can provide therapist referrals.
