Day Treatment/Partial Hospital Program (PHP)
Our Day Treatment Program is the most intensive outpatient treatment service for eating disorders that we offer. Our Partial/Day treatment program meets Monday through Saturday for six to eight hours each day. Participants will have multiple therapeutic groups a day, 2 individual therapy sessions per week, as well as visits with the psychiatrist and dietitian. Two meals and one snack daily are provided as well as movement therapy such as yoga or stretching. Individual, group and family therapy are critical components of a good treatment plan. Our treatment is based upon a comprehensive clinical model that incorporates specific methods and modalities that have proven effective in our own treatment setting as well as in evidence-based research.
All programs follow APA guidelines, and are fully accredited by CARF. We have a strong emphasis on dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) , cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as expressive and interpersonal therapies. We help clients gain insight while learning new coping strategies to better defend against underlying emotional issues. Meal and snack time give clients the opportunity to challenge distorted beliefs around food and their bodies, in a nurturing and supportive setting
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Our Intensive Outpatient program (IOP) consists of up to six days a week from 14 – 24 hours of treatment, including weekly psychotherapy sessions and individual nutrition counseling. Individuals in IOP may participate all 6 days initially or less, depending on the clinical need. We offer a morning IOP and an evening IOP to best accommodate complicated schedules. This level of care is perfect for individuals to integrate recovery-driven skills in their daily lives as they are happening. Additionally, the program includes evidence-based treatment such as DBT, ACT, CBT groups, experiential therapies and follow-up goals groups to discuss successes and setbacks when using positive coping skills learned in program in day to day life.
Individual Outpatient Therapy
Outpatient eating disorder treatment consists of one-on-one individual therapy sessions with a clinician specializing in eating disorder treatment. Individual therapy gives clients the opportunity to develop a trusting and respectful relationship with a professional, which is necessary to work through entrenched cognitive distortions, internal conflicts and unresolved emotional wounds. In following with our collaborative “treatment team” approach, the primary therapist will work closely with all team members, including the physician and dietitian, to best monitor the client’s needs and progress. We are happy to work with an individual’s existing health care team or provide referrals for all specialties.
At Shoreline, we understand the importance of nutrition therapy throughout the recovery process, and are happy to provide comprehensive and supportive nutrition counselling on-site. A registered dietitian, with extensive experience with eating disorder treatment and recovery, provides all nutrition services. Services begin with a complete client assessment, followed by an evaluation of individual nutritional needs and (if indicated) a starting point meal plan. This is provided as a tool to assist clients in developing healthy eating habits and relationships with food. Individual sessions provide a client with opportunities to discuss food-related issues, set weekly nutrition goals and receive personalized nutrition recommendations. Clients will eventually be taught to reconnect with their innate intuitive eating abilities. Please feel free to contact our Registered Dietitian with any questions regarding the nutritional components of our programs.
Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) group is a free and open eating disorder support group for those in the community. It gives you the opportunity to be in a room with others who are challenged by eating disorder thoughts and or behaviors and are looking to gain support from each other. Although this is not a treatment group, it is facilitated by one of Shoreline’s experienced clinicians.
