McCallum Place PHP Review
McCallum Place is an eating disorder treatment facility through Acadia’s network of care centers, which have locations throughout the US. In addition to being in St. Louis, McCallum Place also has programs in Kansas City, Kansas. It offers myriad treatment options for adults and adolescents struggling with anorexia, bulimia, over exercising, binge eating, or other disorders. Of the treatment program options, the traditional Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a comprehensive track that includes evidence-based protocols and therapeutic recreational activities. It is ideal for those who still need support for their eating disorders, but do have significant help outside of the facility.
Treatment and Staff
The PHP is seven days a week for up to six hours per day. This program is a step-down from the extended PHP, which provides up to 70 hours of programming per week, for 10 hours per day. This PHP runs from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, and provides a supported meal during the day.
The adult and adolescent clients are in different wings during the PHP. The adult side offers many different common areas throughout the suites, including a yoga room, dining room and full kitchen. The adolescent program, which is available to young clients between the ages of 12 and 17, also has a private dining room and kitchen, along with a tutoring room and art therapy wing. Adolescents in this program receive individual tutoring during their time in treatment to ensure that they don’t fall behind in their education.
At least once per day the staff records client’s vital signs and weight. There is an morning snack and supported lunch followed by a process group. Every client has their own customized program plan that includes at least three individual sessions, one meeting with the dietitian on staff, group therapy and fitness activities. Eating disorder specialists oversee the group sessions, which cover topics like relapse prevention, managing anxiety and stress, body image, art and music therapy, dance and movement therapy, psychodrama and nutritional education groups. Adolescents have specialized, age appropriate groups like identity formation, interpersonal effectiveness, and meal planning.
Treatment approaches are evidence-based and include CBT, DBT, Family Systems, Schema Therapy, and mindfulness practices. Clients have medical monitoring throughout care.
Staff includes medical doctors and nurses, therapists who are eating disorders specialists, psychiatrists and nutritionists.
Family members attend monthly family days on campus as well as weekly family support group therapy sessions.
Above all, the traditional PHP at McCallum Place is ideal for clients who have received more intensive treatment and are ready to put their skills of recovery to good use in the real world, but are still able to maintain their support. Treatment is caring, age appropriate, and individualized. At every stage clients get comprehensive medical and psychological care, along with encouragement and caring services from experienced staff.
