Levels of Care at Reasons EDC

Levels of Care Offered at Reasons

Reasons is proud to offer the full continuum of care for eating disorder treatment. We believe it is important for patients’ recovery that they have the opportunity to transition seamlessly between levels of care with a cohesive team offering a consistent treatment approach. We offer four levels of care for eating disorder treatment: psychiatric inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. We also are committed to establishing relationships and referring back to other treatment programs, making every attempt to seamlessly coordinate care during transitions.

 We encourage you to watch this video and learn more about our various programs.

Our Programs

Inpatient care focuses on stabilization, which can include stabilizing mood and behaviors and regulating patients medically and nutritionally. This level of care offers 24-hour attention with nursing, daily contact with a psychiatrist, four therapy sessions a week and intensive group therapy sessions. These components make up an intensive setting and leads to stabilization which in turn allows the deeper processing to happen in a safe environment.

While in Residential care, patients live in a home, which exposes patients to a real-life setting by replicating potential triggers yet at the same time providing a high level of support from staff. This level of treatment provides 24-hour nursing support, weekly contact with a psychiatrist, four therapy sessions a week, group and experiential programming. Residential also promotes accountability and allows patients to use skills on a daily basis gained throughout the program.

The lower levels of care offered at Reasons EDC includes Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient. Partial hospitalization runs for eight hours a day and intensive outpatient runs for four hours. These programs provide patients with more support than they would get in just outpatient and are ideal for people those stepping down from higher levels of care or for those whose symptoms can be managed at a lower level. These programs focus on what patients need to get back to their normal lives and the things they enjoy doing and can help patients reconnect to their sense of purpose in life.
