What to Expect: Life After Treatment

Individualized Aftercare Plans

Often times, the hardest work begins when treatment ends. Eating Recovery Center’s treatment programming is designed with life after treatment in mind.

The step-down model of eating disorder care — which includes Inpatient, Residential, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient programs — emphasizes learning, practicing and building confidence in your recovery skills in a structured, supportive environment before stepping down to a level of care with more autonomy and less supervision.

Individual, family and group therapy offers support and education to help prepare you for the potential challenges after treatment and helps you identify personal and recovery-focused goals.

Recovery-focused post-treatment planning is also vital to continued recovery. The Eating Recovery Center treatment team works closely with Aftercare Coordinators to develop an individualized aftercare plan that acknowledges your specific recovery needs and challenges. The sole focus of Aftercare Coordinators is to facilitate a seamless return home and ensure continuity of care. Aftercare Coordinators participate in daily treatment team meetings for clarification of what kind of treatment patients may need at home, remain up to date on the patient discharge timetable.

If you plan to return to your previous treatment providers after you leave our eating disorder treatment center, the Aftercare Coordinator will make post-discharge appointments on your behalf, and will ensure that those providers have full information regarding your treatment at Eating Recovery Center as well as your discharge plan.

Aftercare Coordinators can also assemble new or bolster existing outpatient treatment teams from a national network of trusted clinicians that have familiarity with Eating Recovery Center’s recovery approach.

Follow-ups are conducted with each patient within one week of discharge to see if the discharge plan is working, at which time the Aftercare Coordinator can help make necessary adjustments to meet your recovery needs.

In addition to your post-discharge “plan of action,” Eating Recovery Center’s aftercare planning also involves maintaining and nurturing connections with others through ongoing support and programming for alumni. Support groups, events, retreats and ongoing communications help maintain and rejuvenate recovery.

Additionally, Eating Recovery Center offers your family the opportunity to attend Family Days free of cost as many times as they need to educate themselves on how to support you in your recovery.
