Day Treatment for Children, Teens, and Young Adults


Partial Hospitalization Program/Intensive Day Program (PHP/IDP) 

This intensive program is for those stepping out of residential care or those in need of more support than the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for children, adolescents and young adults.

Your child will spend a minimum of 30 hours per week in treatment, either in our facilities or in a secure virtual environment. Programming includes structured therapeutic meals, behavior exposure groups, and experiential challenges, as well as educational support. 

During treatment, your child will meet with a therapist, dietitian, and other medical professionals. Psychiatric assessment, medication management, and medical monitoring may also be part of their intensive day/partial hospitalization program. In addition to one-on-one therapy, many of our programs for adolescents are based on the Maudsley Approach, which recognizes the importance of family involvement in eating disorder treatment and support. 

PHP/IDP is one of the best options for young clients needing the most symptom-reduction attention and staff support while still living at home.


Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our Intensive Outpatient Program for children, adolescents and young adults focuses on recovery and relapse prevention for adolescents and families in need of more structure and support than non-intensive outpatient treatment. Your child will spend a minimum of 12 hours per week in programming, either in our facilities or in a virtual telehealth environment, with weekly family participation. Group-based intervention and therapeutic meals provide enhanced therapeutic support and symptom interruption.
