For many, it is an alternative to residential care.

- Multiple daily psychotherapy groups
- A weekly treatment team meeting
- Therapeutic meals and snacks
- Medical monitoring of weight and vital signs
- Family involvement, education, and support
- Two meals and two snacks with one or two additional groups daily (10-hour program)

Meal therapy: Teens and parents learn techniques for refeeding and introduction of foods that have been omitted, with the purpose of reducing rituals and increasing flexibility around meals. Dietitians meet regularly with families and the adolescent to provide individualized support that is focused on specific challenges.
Group therapies: Teens learn skills to help manage emotions and address typical adolescent concerns, including peer relationships, school, and the transition to increasing independence.
Treatment focuses on age-appropriate concerns, placing an emphasis on mobilizing resources, with the goal of building skills to eat independently while feeling supported by others. Adults will have separated community spaces and special groups.

We treat patients and their families with an open heart, respect their potential, and recognize their struggles. We offer a variety of eating disorder therapies, including individual psychotherapy and core group therapies. We focus treatment on values, facing fears, and developing skills and confidence in relationships and emotion regulation.
