Children and Adolescent Eating Disorder Treatment Programs
Our adolescent eating disorder treatment programs allow your child to live at home with the support of family and friends while receiving the care necessary for long-term success. We believe this provides a better quality of life as clients progress through the different levels of treatment and stages of recovery.
We offer multiple levels of care for children and adolescents, from our most intensive day treatment/partial hospitalization care to intermediate outpatient therapy — all with the Maudsley Method based at the core of treatment.
Depending on the program and level of care necessary, patients may meet up to five days a week and up to six hours daily. Throughout the week, children and teens attend scheduled group therapy sessions, have their weights and vitals (blood pressure and pulse) monitored, and eat meals and/or snacks daily in a supportive group environment.
As leaders of the treatment team, parents take an active role in planning, providing, and supervising all meals and snacks. We support your family and child in their journey to recovery through our weekly Maudsley Method support groups.
We are committed to implementing the best solutions so that your child can achieve the success of a full and healthy life.
