We currently offer treatment utilizing the following modalities.
Family Based Treatment
Family Based Treatment (FBT) is a method that utilizes all members of a family to assist their loved one in restoring their health. FBT has been show to be most effective with children and adolescents, who have been ill for less than three years and are under age 18, with between 50-70% of patients achieving recovery after a year of treatment. FBT works to empower parents to manage their child’s eating disorder through a firm, compassionate focus on renourishment efforts. The treatment emphasizes the importance of parental efforts at renourishment, then focuses on the transition of control back to the adolescent. The treatment concludes ensuring that the adolescent has returned to their developmental trajectory in terms of eating and daily life. FBT is organized into three phases, and the duration of treatment is typically 6-9 months.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a highly individualized outpatient treatment. The treatment has four stages.In the first stage, the focus is on understanding the eating problem and helping to establish a pattern of regular eating. During stage one, there is also a focus on education. Stage two reviews the progress and changes made and sets the plan for the remainder of therapy. The third stage addresses the maintaining processes of the eating disorder, and the final stage focuses on preventing relapse and maintaining positive changes.
Adolescent Focused Therapy
Adolescent Focused Therapy (AFT) is a manualized, empirically evaluated individual treatment for adolescent Anorexia Nervosa. Developed from a self-psychological model, this model views AN as a maladaptive coping tool used by the adolescent to manage their transition in adolescence. AFT consists of three phases of treatment over one year of treatment.
