Norman, OK 8/1/17: Living Hope Eating Disorder Treatment Center will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of the only residential treatment center for eating disorders in the central Oklahoma region. The newly renovated, 10 bed facility, will provide comprehensive care to male and female patients 18 and older.
Living Hope was founded in 2011 by Meghan Scears, M.D., the only physician in the area with specialized training in treating patients with eating disorders, offering only outpatient services. Over the last six years, Dr. Scears recognized the need for more structured care and implemented an intensive outpatient program (IOP) in 2012, and a partial hospitalization program (PHP) in 2016. “We are honored to be able to offer residential treatment, an important and life-saving level of care, to those struggling with their eating disorders in central Oklahoma and beyond,” Scears said.
The new residential facility will provide 24/7 care including medical evaluation and monitoring by Dr. Scears and her nursing staff, psychiatric care, individual and group therapy, individual dietetic sessions, as well as supervised meals and snacks. The residential program will also include family involvement and exposure groups building culinary skills and real-life experiences. Each patient will be provided with a specialized treatment plan based on their specific needs.
The ribbon cutting event will be held at 3900 E. Robinson Street on Friday, August 11, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. with a reception and tours of the new facility to follow.
Living Hope provides eating disorder treatment services for men and women with an emphasis on creating a lasting recovery, which incorporates physical, mental and spiritual health. They offer four different treatment programs including residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient. Depending on the level of care, services are available for both adolescents and adults.
