Adult Residential Program

Residential Eating Disorder Treatment

Our Residential eating disorder treatment program is designed for patients that need 24-hour support but no longer require the same intensity of medical support and stabilization of Inpatient programming.

The Residential eating disorder treatment program offers round-the-clock observation and support, as well as daytime medical and psychiatric supervision. A structured schedule incorporates groups, community meetings and individual therapy to model a recovery-based daily structure to help patients overcome destructive routines, rules and behaviors.

The Residential eating disorder treatment program focuses on helping patients understand the factors that are maintaining their eating disorders and gain recovery skills. Evidence-based clinical interventions that enhance behavioral change include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), while experiential therapies include art, psychodrama, movement and yoga. Adult patients also participate in relaxation groups.

Within Eating Recovery Center’s step-down model of care, the Residential eating disorder treatment program offers medically stable patients a highly structured and supportive 24-hour treatment environment. Adult patients and eating disorder treatment teams are able to test recovery in real-world situations, including meal and activity outings as well as day and weekend passes, to identify recovery challenges and determine readiness for entry into a lower level of care with more autonomy.
