We provide multidisciplinary teen eating disorder therapy in the Bay Area with Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization levels of care.

Partial Hospitalization for Eating Disorder Treatment Programs

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides clients the opportunity to receive intensive day treatment while remaining in familiar surroundings at home and with family. PHP is a period of treatment between acute hospitalization and/or residential treatment and lower levels of care, such as an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or outpatient care.  The program consists of six and a half hours of treatment Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Our multidisciplinary team includes Therapists, Registered Dietitians, Medical providers and Psychiatrists, as well as other adolescent eating disorder specialists. Each team member has extensive experience working with adolescent eating disorders and is committed to getting to know each client in order to understand the underlying issues driving their eating disorder. We recognize that every client (and family) is unique and therefore develop individualized treatment plans that are most appropriate and relevant for their needs.

All clients are assigned an individual therapist for treatment coordination and individual therapy. They also receive family therapy, group therapy, expressive arts therapy, yoga therapy and health education. All activities are age appropriate and creative in order to engage the teens and encourage self-expression and self-acceptance.

Family services are a core-component of our program. Families (family members and clients) benefit through family therapy sessions as well as family support and education groups. Eating disorders touch everyone in the family so it is our strong belief that the family should have the opportunity to heal together.

At the PHP level of care our Registered Dietitians perform extensive eating disorder-specific nutritional intake assessments and ongoing weekly assessments. Our Registered Dietitians also maintain close supervision at every meal and provide parents with individualized nutritional guidance to assist with meal and snack planning at home.

We have experienced over time that onsite Medical and Psychiatric eating disorder specialists are essential for this level of care. The immediate proximity and availability of these providers helps constitute a comprehensive treatment team and ensures high safety standards. These onsite providers also coordinate with outside providers to ensure appropriate continuity of care.

We understand that eating disorders can pose difficult challenges for teens and their academic goals. If appropriate, we coordinate with schools and educational consultants to provide an opportunity for our teens to continue their studies.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to meet the needs of teenagers who require more physical, emotional and nutritional support than they can get from seeing their outpatient providers once or twice a week. The program also provides step-down care from Partial Hospitalization Programs or Residential Treatment.

The hours of our IOP (4 hours a day, 3-5 days a week) allow for more intensive treatment while maintaining active participation in school and other daily activities.
