Partial Hospitalization Program
Eating Recovery Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers some of the intensity and structure of residential eating disorders treatment while providing opportunities to practice recovery outside of the controlled treatment environment during evenings at home or in peer-supported apartment communities.
Where most partial hospitalization programs for the treatment of eating disorders are comprised of 6-8 hours of programming offered 5-7 days per week, Eating Recovery Center’s PHP provides 11.5 hours of treatment 7 days per week. By offering a full day of programming every day of the week, patients are supported through all meals and snacks and have ample structure and containment to achieve symptom interruption and/or weight restoration. Combined with daytime medical support, the strategic intensity of Eating Recovery Center’s PHP can provide a non-residential treatment resource for individuals requiring a higher level of care.
Eating Recovery Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program emphasizes the development of lifelong recovery skills in a safe, structured and supportive environment. PHP’s well-rounded curriculum offers staff-supported opportunities to practice for interactions and challenges outside of treatment through interactive group sessions, including:
