In Connecticut, we welcome individuals of all genders and ages who are in need of eating disorder support services. We offer the state’s only acute medical unit dedicated to the treatment and medical management of eating disorders. In addition to our state-of-the-art hospital unit, we also have two satellite locations offering day and evening eating disorder recovery programs for adults and teens who identify as male, female, transgender and/or gender non-binary.
We understand that eating disorders thrive in isolation and for that reason, we do our best to incorporate family and/or loved ones into your treatment. For teens in our care, Family-Based Treatment is the focal point of programming and is designed to give parents an active and positive role in helping their child to reduce disordered eating behaviors, restore weight and resume proper adolescent development.
Our Connecticut locations are also conveniently located for residents of Rhode Island and New York and offer a plethora of specialized tracks including programming specific to co-occurring trauma, substance use and/or those who are considering or have undergone bariatric surgery. We are here to help support your recovery goals and are excited to get to know you.
Eating Disorder Conditions Treated
What We Offer
Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Eating Disorder Treatment
This program is ideal for teens who are medically stable but who require the structure and support of day treatment. Parents will take on a more active role at this level of care, learning – alongside your child – how to replace maladaptive behaviors with coping skills and how to deal with uncomfortable emotions in the moment.
Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Eating Disorder Treatment
Designed for teens in need of more structured support than their outpatient team can provide, this level of care utilizes Family-Based Treatment, an evidence-based intervention proven to support lasting recovery that is meant to equip you and your family with the skills necessary to best help your child.
Adult Partial Hospitalization Eating Disorder Treatment
This level of care is designed for individuals who require support during the day to optimize recovery success. You will experience a structured treatment environment focused on helping you to normalize eating patterns, target maladaptive coping behaviors and practice skills.
Adult Intensive Outpatient Eating Disorder Treatment
This program is designed for adults who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can provide. This level of care focuses on providing you with the skills necessary to replace maladaptive coping behaviors and to provide you with the flexibility to also balance other priorities such as work, family and/or school.
Adult Binge Eating Disorder Treatment
Designed for adults living with binge eating disorder, this program is ideal for individuals who need a bit more intensive support than their outpatient team can offer.
