According to the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine (SAHM), eating disorders rank as the third most common chronic illness in adolescent girls. The Cincinnati Children’s Eating Disorders Program serves adolescents, both male and female, struggling with unhealthy eating behaviors, including: 

  • Anorexia nervosa
  • Bulimia nervosa
  • Binge eating disorder / overeating
  • Subsyndromal eating disorder symptoms

An interdisciplinary team has been developed within Cincinnati Children's to provide an appropriate treatment for each patient’s situation. Our Eating Disorders Program continuum of care includes outpatient, partial hospitalization and inpatient treatment options. The level of treatment intensity is guided by the nature and severity of your child’s needs and also allows for step-down treatment support through the healing journey.
