While patients are admitted to the PHP they will see a dietitian weekly for an individual session, and will see a therapist 1-2 times weekly for individual therapy and/or family therapy. Patients will also see Dr. Scears weekly while in PHP. Patients will also have monthly family group sessions typically on the 2 nd Saturday of every month from 10 AM until 1:30 PM. All group members are strongly encouraged to bring their families to these groups.
Before admission to the Partial Hospitalization Program for the treatment of eating disorders, patients will have an assessment completed by Dr. Scears. This assessment will include comprehensive health assessment. This includes a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation, with emphasis on history of the eating disorder. Additionally, detailed family history, social circumstances, menstrual cycle history (in females), diet history and exercise routine will be evaluated.
