Eating Disorder Treatment in Southern California
Our Most Intensive Level of Care
Located in the San Gabriel Valley in Greater Los Angeles in Southern California, our inpatient eating disorder treatment program at BHC Alhambra Hospital is our most intensive level of care. This program includes both acute stabilization and intensive therapeutic interventions for adult women and men suffering from an eating disorder and co-occurring issues such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma or other psychiatric issues. Patients in this program are housed on a dedicated, comfortable unit in our hospital and receive structured and compassionate treatment from a multidisciplinary eating disorder treatment team. Our program has a focus on addressing the individual’s medical, emotional, spiritual, psychological and nutritional needs. For patients requiring 24-hour eating disorder care and supervision, we offer 24-hour nursing care and daily visits with a psychiatrist in addition to individual, group, and family therapy and nutrition counseling.
Our eating disorder center is focused on high quality treatment supported by the current evidence, as well as integration of clinical wisdom and experiential healing therapies. While in our program you will be surrounded by people who are compassionate and care deeply about your journey to recovery. Our staff is focused on your well-being and firmly believes each individual is capable of achieving full recovery.
Our clinical team works with the patient and family to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the unique needs of the individual and to best promote emotional, behavioral and physiological re-regulation and stabilization to begin the process of healing. Our medical and nursing staff monitor vital signs, laboratory test results, effects of malnourishment, and eating disorder behaviors. Our team is dedicated to helping all of our patients by providing a comprehensive treatment plan to both address physical and emotional health, behaviors, and underlying contributing issues.
In addition, we offer a dedicated eating disorder case manager who will work with insurance and provide a well-coordinated discharge plan to support recovery.
Our inpatient eating disorder program is a treatment center that people may come to after medical stabilization or when residential care is not quite enough monitoring for medical or psychiatric symptoms. For those individuals struggling with co-occurring psychiatric issues, inpatient can be a containing environment to receive intensive levels of psychiatric care and stabilization in order to begin the deeper work often required on the recovery journey.
We offer hope that full recovery is possible.
