Our outpatient clinic provides evidence-based eating disorder treatment for patients of all ages. The primary treatments are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-Enhanced and Family-Based Therapy. Initially, the patient and family are evaluated by a psychiatrist and medical provider to determine the appropriate treatment approach and setting (inpatient vs. outpatient). The team of providers will coordinate with your primary care provider or pediatrician for medical monitoring.
Outpatient treatments are typically time limited, and the family is asked to attend appointments with their child/adolescent. If outpatient treatment is not effective or the patient becomes medically compromised, inpatient treatment may be recommended. Our outpatient team has immediate access to hospitalists for inpatient admission as well as all medical specialties for consultations.
