A Full Continuum of Care Offered at Our Eating Disorder Treatment Center
We offer four specific levels of care at Castlewood, enhanced with additional post-treatment services. Clients are placed in the level of care that meets personal monitoring and structural needs while receiving treatment. Higher levels of care at our eating disorder treatment center are more structured and intense, while lower levels of care are appropriate for clients who are less medically compromised or can manage behaviors with more autonomy. Clients at Castlewood receive ongoing assessment by their clinicians, so that they move into the next level of care as appropriate.
For clients who require close monitoring and support 24 hours a day, with living accommodations located in Castlewood’s treatment facility.
Step Down Program
A type of partial hospital program (PHP), with clients attending group therapy sessions daily, individual therapy sessions several days a week, and having one to two monitored meals a day. Clients are autonomous enough to live in off-campus apartments, which are provided at no additional cost.
Our Day Treatment provides intensive treatment, but is appropriate for clients who may be able to meet their treatment goals without a residential stay or overnight supervision. Unlike many eating disorder facilities, Castlewood provides transitional living for this level of care at no additional cost.
Intensive Outpatient Program
This level of care continues intensive nutrition and clinical therapy, but with fewer group and individual sessions during the week, and while living off-campus. Client may choose to stay in Castlewood off-campus apartments at an additional cost. This level of care is appropriate for clients who require more intensive therapy than can be provided in a general outpatient setting.
Each level provided at our eating disorder recovery center is dedicated to customized and client-centered care, and fluidly changes as each client works towards recovery.
Importance of Transition in Our Eating Disorder Treatment Center
Each treatment program at Castlewood’s well-respected eating disorder treatment center focuses on building a consistent, individualized relationship with the primary therapist, psychiatrist, and dietitian. A key to our program is working with a qualified nutritionist, who has a solid background in eating disorders. Many of our dietitians are in recovery, and understand the process as only someone who has been through the recovery process really can.
Transitional care allows clients to receive close supervision and monitoring when they most need it, followed by progressive autonomy as their self-confidence and recovery skills strengthen. Castlewood is proud to offer these multiple levels of transitional care in our beautiful, state-of-the-art locations.
Castlewood often receives referrals from outpatient treatment teams who prefer to place their clients at Castlewood for more intensive treatment services. Our clinical team will update the client’s outpatient team throughout the entire treatment and transitional process. As clients transition back home from Castlewood Eating Disorder Treatment Center, our clinicians and discharge coordinators assure that information is shared with their outpatient treatment team.
