The Eating Disorders Program serves all adolescents, male and female and gender nonconforming, with significantly unhealthy eating behaviors including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating / overeating.

We provide outpatient treatment to children, adolescents and young adults through age 24. Psychiatric consultations are available for inpatient and partial hospitalization patients through the Division of Psychiatry.

What to Expect

The Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine, in partnership with the Division of Psychiatry, Nutrition Services, and Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology, provides expertise in eating disorder evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for children, adolescents and young adults. Our collaboration creates a seamless continuum of care for patients from an interdisciplinary team of professionals.

Before your child has an appointment with us, we will work with the primary care provider to discuss concerns and collect necessary information. Together, we will evaluate available services and determine appropriate next steps for your child's care.

Outpatient Services

Outpatient services are available at our Burnet and Liberty campuses. A comprehensive outpatient treatment team will evaluate your child, identify specific needs, develop an individualized treatment plan and coordinate care. Our interdisciplinary treatment team includes:

  • Adolescent and transition medicine physicians
  • Child psychiatrists
  • Child psychologists
  • Registered dietitians
  • Mental health therapists

Inpatient Programs

Patients requiring medical stabilization are admitted to the Adolescent Medicine service at our Liberty Campus unit only.

Partial hospitalization and inpatient psychiatric unit admissions for the Eating Disorder Program are located on the Lindner Center of Hope campus - adolescent units are operated by Cincinnati Children's.
