Our symptom specific inpatient treatment program offers 24-hour specialized psychiatric and nutritional care for adolescents between the ages of 12 to 18 who are actively attending high school. The treatment team works with each patient to address specific symptoms, and more important, to resolve deeper issues enabling recovery and improved mental and physical wellness.
Our eating disorders treatment team includes:
- Board-certified psychiatrists
- Registered dietitians
- Mental health specialist (trained in family-based treatment)
- Occupational therapist (by referral)
- Licensed Social Workers
- Behavior specialist (by referral)
- Speech therapist (by referral)
Because eating disorders are a form of mental illness, patients admitted to the inpatient unit live and receive therapy side by side with patients facing other mental illnesses.
Psychiatric consultations for adolescents are available to inpatient and partial hospitalization patients through the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in collaboration with the Harold C. Schott Eating Disorders Treatment Team.
