Program Details

Our adult inpatient treatment program is housed in a dedicated, comfortable unit of our hospital where we provide structured and compassionate treatment from a multidisciplinary eating disorder treatment team. Our program focuses on addressing the individual’s medical, emotional, spiritual, psychological and nutritional needs. For those who require 24-hour eating disorder care and supervision, we offer around-the-clock nursing care and daily visits with a psychiatrist in addition to individual, group, and family therapy and nutrition counseling.

Our clinical team works with each patient and family to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the unique needs of the individual and promotes emotional, behavioral and physiological re-regulation and stabilization. Our medical and nursing staff monitor vital signs, laboratory test results, effects of malnourishment, and eating disorder behaviors. Our team is dedicated to providing a comprehensive treatment plan to address physical and emotional health, behaviors, and underlying contributing issues.

We also offer a dedicated eating disorder case manager who will work with insurance and provide a well-coordinated discharge plan to support recovery. Often, patients can step down to our residential program after inpatient care. If you were referred by another residential program, we will coordinate your return with them after completing our inpatient program.
