Treatment Centers

Eating disorder treatment can happen in a variety of settings. Depending on the severity of the eating disorder, the patient may undergo group therapy, individual therapy, outpatient hospital care, partial hospitalization, residential treatment care, or inpatient hospital care.

Outpatient (OP): The patient lives at home and attends regularly scheduled (usually 45-50 minute) sessions at a therapist’s office.  This typically includes one or more sessions per week.  The patient may be seen individually, with the family, in a group format with other patients, and/or sometimes in a multi-family group format. The type of therapy prescribed will depend on the age of the patient, the prescribed treatment plan, and the philosophy of the provider. Outpatient treatment does not usually include supervised meals.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): The patient lives at home but spends some of their time at a clinic for therapy sessions and limited meal support.  A common IOP schedule would be three hours per day, three days per week, and includes dinner.

Day Treatment Program:  The patient lives primarily at home but spends four to twelve hours per day at a hospital or clinic for individual, group and family therapy sessions and meal support. Typically the patient will eat at least two meals and a snack at the program each day. Day treatment programs may or may not include weekend housing and or support.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP): The patient lives at home but spends six to twelve hours per day, five to seven days per week at a hospital or clinic for individual, group, and family therapy sessions, medical oversight, and meal support. Typically, the patient will eat at least two meals and a snack at the program each day. Some PHP programs will provide housing and  keep a patient overnight for parts of the week. NOTE: State regulation and licensing will influence whether there are day treatment and/or partial hospitalization programs in your community.

Inpatient (IP): The patient is hospitalized, usually for medical and/or psychiatric stabilization, and may or may not receive therapy. Hospitalization can occur on a voluntary or involuntary basis. Some hospitals have psychiatric beds for involuntarily admitted patients and some do not. Often, Inpatient stays take place at a general medical or psychiatric facility which may or may not have a specialized eating disorder unit. Meal support at a general facility usually focuses on medical stabilization (not weight restoration) and may not include regular meal support.

Residential: The patient lives full time at a specialized eating disorder facility where 24/7 care is provided.  Residential treatment usually requires a longer-term stay ranging from a few weeks to several months to a year or more. Residential care is usually indicated when outpatient interventions have not been successful at interrupting eating disorder symptoms.  The patient needs a highly controlled environment to restore weight, stop binge eating, purging or other self-destructive behaviors.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

The foundation of our treatment philosophy can be best expressed by the phrase, “Meet me where I’m at.” This speaks to the collaborative stance of our treatment that we truly accept our clients for who they are where they are, and we work with them to get to where they want to be. We approach treatment with a spirit of teamwork, not just amongst the providers, but with the client as well. We use treatments that are tried and true, and that allow us to track our results. We also use treatment designed to help more than just the symptoms of the Eating Disorder, but to help the person in all aspects of their life. We strive to cultivate skills that clients can take with them even after they move on from our program.

Yes, I think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder and define recovery as: Recovery is not a destination, but a journey. Recovery exists on a spectrum and is not specific universal definition for recovery. A good indication of a person being far along in recovery is that their body is not actively compromised as a result of the eating disorder and that while eating disorder symptoms or thoughts may still be present, they do not control the person’s actions or dictate how they live their life.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

Eating Disorders’ effects on the brain and body impair the ability to utilize traditional psychotherapies and hamper recovery from these serious illnesses. Comprehensive evaluation is necessary in order to develop a proper treatment plan.

I feel you can recover from an eating disorder. Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa are complex “Bio-Psycho-Social” diseases that require a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment. Among the factors that contribute to their development are a biologic pre-disposition, physiologic consequences of semi-starvation, aberrant nutritional patterns, cultural pressures, family dysfunction, psychological stressor as well as psychological make-up. Recovery is best achieved when each of these issues is addressed via individualized treatment plans.

1. Every client is a unique individual who comes with his or her own unique strengths and challenges. We meet each client where they are and create an individualized plan to meet their unique needs. 2. The family is a crucial component in an adolescent’s eating disorder treatment and recovery. a. Parents can be the best support for their child. b. Parents of teens with eating disorders have been thrown into a new world that they are often struggling to navigate. We provide them with the support, encouragement and education that they need to navigate this new world. c. Our clients’ eating disorders significantly affect their siblings. We aim to provide support for siblings as well. 3. We do not work in isolation. Many of our clients have a strong support network outside of the program. We make it a priority to connect with this support network in order to make the transition into and out of the program as seamless as possible. 4. Prevention. a. Eating disorder prevention is crucial. The hope is that over time there will be less and less need for programs such as ours. b. We work closely with schools and community agencies to provide education and implement prevention programs.

CREDENTIALS/DISCIPLINE: Monarch Cove is an Eating Disorder Treatment Program that offers residential, partial-hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs for men and women ages 16 and above. Monarch Cove offers a team of specialists, each with different skills, including therapists who have subspecialties in Anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. Most importantly, we have dieticians who listen to the client and work with each individual’s unique metabolic requirements. It is our goal to provide education, support, and nurturing guidance as our patients let go of their eating disorder behaviors and distorted thoughts regarding food and weight.

Board Certified: Yes – Joint Commission Accredited Facility

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:
Number of years treating patients with eating disorders: 0-1 years

Number of patients with eating disorders you treat annually: 15+

EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE:We are committed to providing effective treatment by a professional team with years of experience and deep compassion for the complexity of the recovery process. Our therapists include highly trained Master and Doctoral level professionals with numerous advanced specialties. Our team of therapists, dietitians and nurses is experienced in treating both the physical symptoms of eating disorders and the underlying issues that cause them. Our staff have extensive training in an array of therapeutic modalities including: CBT/DBT, Expressive Therapies, Internal Family Systems, Schema Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention. The staff at Monarch Cove is also equipped to treat co-occurring disorders commonly associated with eating disorders. These include depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), trauma, social anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), multiple addictions and other conditions. By also specializing in the areas of nutrition, nursing, psychiatry and behavioral therapy, we are able to provide comprehensive care.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

As part of our treatment philosophy at Monarch Cove, we believe that every individual presents a unique case and deserves to be treated based on his or her specific needs. No two clients are alike, and each client’s eating disorder symptoms are accompanied by different underlying issues. Monarch Cove makes it a priority to provide the physical and emotional care each client needs in order to begin a total recovery. Many times our clients enter our program not knowing what has contributed to the maintenance and development of their eating disorder or co-occurring disorders. At Monarch Cove, our team believes in incorporating evidence based approaches alongside innovative techniques. We combine Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Internal Family Systems Therapy, expressive therapies such as art therapy, dance/movement therapy and psychodrama along with life coaching. Our goal is to help our clients to uncover the underlying dynamics and deal with the root of the eating disorder. This process takes varied amounts of time for each client and thus we develop a unique treatment plan with unique goal, objectives and assignments for each client who walks through our doors. Because family members and support teams are important to each client’s recovery, we also encourage family involvement whenever possible.

Yes, we think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder. Recovery is not just the absence of symptoms, although this is a necessary component of the recovery process. Recovery is the presence of a full life as evidenced by the ability to be human. A truly recovered life will reflect spontaneity, freedom, the ability to breathe, to have wants, needs and desires, knowing that the quest for perfection is an unattainable illusion. Having the ability to embrace the feminine or masculine, having close intimate relationships, and it is being aware of the tears in your eyes (whether out of intense or subtle sadness – or out of joy – or from a flicker of utter gratefulness) and then to allow your tears to flow freely. It is a life in which decisions and choices are made more from self and less from a shame and fear based prison. It is a life where you fully experience pleasure, joy, and passion and believe and know it is good to desire live.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:
Number of years treating patients with eating disorders: 8-10 years

Number of patients with eating disorders you treat annually: 15+

EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE:All of our team members are experienced in working with eating disorders and dual diagnosis issues. Our team consists of a licensed Clinical Psychologist, MFT’s, and a Registered Dietitian. Each member of the team was carefully chosen for their ability to provide the most clinically excellent care in a way that is compassionate, respectful and empowering for our patients and their families.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

Recovery is living a healthy, satisfying, and meaningful life. Health is acknowledging and caring for our physical and emotional needs. Recovery is not confusing the messages about what we think we need or should need with the messages from the body about what we actually need. Recovery is being able to notice and respect our physical needs by eating when hungry, eating until satiated, and eating satisfying and delicious foods as well as moving when our body asks. Recovery is noticing the emotional needs and meeting our emotional needs by being a compassionate person toward ourselves. Recovery is making moment to moment choices that align with our values and priorities.

At Aspire Wellness Center, we believe that eating disorders are often complex and multifaceted, generally needing a comprehensive treatment approach. We believe in using a collaborative and compassionate approach to therapy, meeting the client where they are in the recovery process. At Aspire Wellness Center we work to address the person’s relationship with food by examining feelings, beliefs, and experiences around food through weekly meetings with our registered dietitian as well as meal groups, nutrition education groups, meal planning groups, cooking class, and nutrition outings. We also explore any potential underlying components that may have contributed to the development and maintenance of the eating disorder through individual, family, and group therapy. These underlying issues can include issues with self-esteem, issues with the way the person experiences their emotions, issues in relationships, or other mental health issues. Our core therapies include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and Self-Compassion Therapy. In addition to these core therapies, we offer experiential therapies such as dance movement, yoga, tai chi, and equine therapy.

EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE:Eating Recovery Center of California is a Joint Commission-accredited center for eating disorders treatment and prevention based in Sacramento, California. Founded in 2000, Eating Recovery Center of California is a medically-supervised treatment program serving both adolescents and adults with anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, and organizes professional development and prevention services for the community at large. A multidisciplinary team of professionals oversees outpatient levels of care, including a seven day-per-week Partial Hospitalization Program, an Intensive Outpatient Program and flexible outpatient programming in Sacramento, as well as Intensive Outpatient and flexible outpatient programs in Fresno and Roseville. Eating Recovery Center of California has partnered with Eating Recovery Center, an international center providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS and binge eating disorder.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

We believe that anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder are caused by a variety of psychological, biological, interpersonal, and social factors. There is no one cause of eating disorders, many factors come together to create the conditions necessary for eating disorders to exist, such as: Low self-esteem or self concept Poor interpersonal relationships Depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive behavior Eating Recovery Center of California focuses treatment on the above underlying dynamics that create and maintain the eating disorder. We do so through group counseling, individual therapy, nutrition counseling and therapeutic meals. Since an eating disorder is multi-dimensional, the treatment needs to be as well.

Recovery from an eating disorder is a lengthy process and we recognize that changes can be slow. In the beginning of treatment, it is natural to feel overwhelmed and confused. This is normal. We provide a great deal of support and opportunity for you to work through this phase. As you learn new ways of coping, along with greater insight into your eating disorder, behavioral changes will begin to happen.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

The purpose of Eating Disorder-Intensive Family Treatment (ED-IFT) is to provide parents and families with an immersive and intensive dose of treatment that is specifically designed to bring about rapid symptom change. This program provides families with the practical skills necessary to successfully steer their child through an eating disorder, in addition to equipping families with a deeper understanding of eating disorders, which helps develop strategies for all members of the family to play a key role in recovery. As such, ED-IFT benefits all members of the family, and provides a comprehensive guide for each member of the family in how to navigate the steps required throughout recovery. Treatment components are drawn from family-based treatment, dialectical behavior therapy, parent management training, meal coaching, and leading neuroimaging research.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

TLC has found that definitions of what “recovery” looks like vary from person to person. A client’s treatment and recovery goals are something we define and refine together. Collaboratively, we can help you determine your recovery goals and develop a treatment plan specifically designed for you.

TLC does not believe in pressuring clients to give up their eating disorders. Instead, clients will be supported to achieve optimum physical and emotional health, whatever stage of change they are in.

TLC does believe if someone would like to fully recover from an eating disorder that it’s possible. We see that this is achieved by identifying the reasons the eating disorder began, meeting those needs in a healthier more sustainable way, breaking the addictive cycle, learning healthier coping skills, and not only move on… but thrive! Once an individual experiences glimpses of life without an eating disorder, we have found that recovery then takes on a life of it’s own. A client’s healthy/recovered voice only then needs to be nourished and supported as it continues to grow and blossom. TLC also fully supports those that aren’t “totally recovered” but need support to maintain eating disorder sobriety and recovery.

From Dr. Rachel Goldstein:
Rachel@thelotuscollaborative.com

The Lotus Collaborative believes it’s important that we understand the unique individual you are: who you are, where you’ve been, what you’re struggling with, what your strengths are, and where you’d like to go from here. We believe in meeting people where they are at and that you don’t have to want to recover from an eating disorder in order to get help or seek treatment. The Lotus Collaborative (TLC) has a unique name that speaks to the unique treatment we offer.

Dr. Elizabeth Esalen is the Founder and Director of The Lotus Collaborative. She has extensive experience and expertise in treating eating disorders. She founded TLC to answer the community need for a higher level of eating disorder care in Santa Cruz and the greater Bay areas. Dr. Liz believes a crucial stage of healing from an eating disorder is learning how to practice recovery while living at home. TLC is designed specifically to integrate treatment and recovery into a client’s daily life and home or school environment.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

Woodleaf Eating Disorder Center is committed to the treatment of bulimia, anorexia and binge eating disorder. We believe that that eating disorders arise from a variety of social, cultural, environmental and interpersonal issues. Healing therefore come from addressing eating disorders in a multi-dimensional fashion. We strive to address more than symptoms treating underlying issues that may have prompted the disorder in the first place.

Recovery is very individual and requires on-going care and commitment not just to treatment but to aftercare and long term healing. Freedom from an eating disorder is often experienced as no longer being obsessed with food, ones body image and learning to love yourself again. It also involves developing a new healthy relationship to food.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

The foundation of our treatment philosophy can be best expressed by the phrase, “Meet me where I’m at.” This speaks to the collaborative stance of our treatment that we truly accept our clients for who they are where they are, and we work with them to get to where they want to be. We approach treatment with a spirit of teamwork, not just amongst the providers, but with the client as well. We use treatments that are tried and true, and that allow us to track our results. We also use treatment designed to help more than just the symptoms of the Eating Disorder, but to help the person in all aspects of their life. We strive to cultivate skills that clients can take with them even after they move on from our program.

Yes, I think it is possible to recover from an eating disorder and define recovery as: Recovery is not a destination, but a journey. Recovery exists on a spectrum and is not specific universal definition for recovery. A good indication of a person being far along in recovery is that their body is not actively compromised as a result of the eating disorder and that while eating disorder symptoms or thoughts may still be present, they do not control the person’s actions or dictate how they live their life.

EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE:At The Lotus Collaborative, we utilize the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Eating Disorder Treatment Guidelines.

Our treatment program is designed to minimize disruptions to your work/school/family lives and to be a supplement to outpatient treatment.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

The Lotus Collaborative believes it’s important that we understand the unique individual you are: who you are, where you’ve been, what you’re struggling with, what your strengths are, and where you’d like to go from here. We believe in meeting people where they are at and that you don’t have to want to recover from an eating disorder in order to get help or seek treatment. Definitions of what “recovery” looks like vary from person to person and this is something we define together. Collaboratively, we can help you determine your recovery goals and develop a treatment plan specifically designed for you. You will not be pressured to give up your eating disorder but instead will be supported to achieve optimum physical and emotional health whatever stage of change you are in. If someone would like to fully recover from an eating disorder, we believe it’s possible by breaking the addictive cycle, learning healthier coping skills, and not only move on… but thrive! There are many people, including some of your treatment staff, who have found peace in recovery and now fully enjoy their lives, eating disorder free. Lotus Collaborative also provides free assessments that can be booked online and a free support group on Sundays. Please see our website for more information.

Yes, we believe in meeting people where they are at and assisting them with the goals they have. In providing eating disorder treatment, these are few essential beliefs we have: 1) You don’t have to want to recover in order to get help or seek treatment. Definitions of what “recovery” looks like vary from person to person and this is something we will discuss. Our initial meetings will help us determine your recovery goals and develop our treatment plan. 2) If someone wants to fully recover from an eating disorder, I believe it’s possible. I believe that people struggling with eating disorders can fully recover by breaking the addictive cycle, learning healthier coping skills, and not only move on but thrive! There are many people who have decided they don’t want an eating disorder to be part of their lives anymore. We have witnessed clients do the recovery work and go on to live healthy and enjoyable lives. We believe in full recovery because we conceptualize eating disorders as a learned coping skill and an addictive-additive behavior (behavior that once used to help the person cope but over time, took more control of the person’s life, health and happiness). Learned behaviors can be unlearned and replaced with new healthy habits. These new behaviors eventually replace the eating disorder with more sustainable coping skills and people discover they are no longer motivated by the eating disorder. 3) And finally, we believe that recovery is worth it. We have seen the havoc eating disorders can wreck on a person’s emotions, health, finances, relationships, and general well-being. But… we also know that people can fully recover and finally get their life back. Judging between the two, living a healthy, happy life is much more sustainable and joyful.

EDUCATION, TRAINING, and EXPERTISE:Our experienced team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, MFT’s, LCSW’s, Registered Nurses, and Dietitians are carefully chosen for their ability to provide the most clinically excellent care in a way that is nurturing, respectful and empowering for our patients and their families.

TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY:

We know that recovery from an eating disorder is possible, because we have seen it happen time and time again. However, many will struggle in the beginning of treatment because the program structure can seem overpowering, and real change takes time. Fully overcoming eating disorder behaviors and learning to effectively cope with the underlying causes is a challenging process. We try our very hardest to provide the support and motivation you need to stay committed to your recovery.

Because eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder are caused by a variety of psychological, environmental, and interpersonal factors, we believe that a patient’s best chance at recovery occurs when the treatment experience is individually tailored and client-centered. To help participants be more self-sufficient and learn healthy behaviors, we teach them how to shop and prepare their own meals under the supervision of a Registered Dietitian. We also limit enrollment in our programs so that the supervised meal groups, individual therapy, individual meal planning, process groups and holistic activities will Our Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient program curriculums help them to rebuild their self-esteem and self-worth by allowing them to interact in experiential activities like Equine Assisted Therapy, Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga, and weekly meal outings. Our multi-disciplinary team’s treatment approach focuses on diagnosing and working to resolve the underlying causes that often drive eating disorder behaviors, such as past trauma, poor body image, peer and media pressure to look a certain way, low self-esteem, and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. Lifetime Continuing Care is provided to all of our graduates so that support is always available.
