Child & Adolescent Program

Specifically designed with young people in mind.

Our Child and Adolescent Program is specifically designed with young people in mind. With a focus on individualized care, family involvement, and integrated educational support, our goal is to equip each individual and family with take-home skills to continue recovery and thrive in the home environment.

Individualized Care

We recognize that every young person is unique and deserves care tailored to their needs. That’s why our multidisciplinary treatment team – composed of doctors, psychiatric providers, nurses, registered dietitians, therapists, and skilled therapeutic assistants – collaborates daily to ensure that each patient’s plan of care is individualized, attainable, and geared toward long-term recovery.

Family Involvement

We believe families are powerful tools in the eating disorder recovery process. Therefore, a large component of our treatment process has been designed to facilitate family involvement through family therapy and multi-family groups each weekend. Our goal is to help each individual and family tackle the eating disorder and thrive together in the home environment.

Integrated Educational Support

Integrated directly into the Child & Adolescent Program, we provide age-appropriate educational support, including an on-site school, so that each patient is able to maintain progress on their academic trajectory. Our Education Coordinators are creative in implementing each student’s educational plans and meeting their needs. The primary goal of our Education Program is to enable the continuation of student learning and prepare the student for a smooth transition back to their home school upon discharge.
