Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help staff members determine their needs. Though the specifics of each program may vary, treatment features both individual and group therapy rooted in evidence-based treatment practices including CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
As mentioned, the organization provides both medical and psychiatric help as well; as a result, dual diagnosis support and medication management services are both provided. Because the program is focused on teaching clients healthier relationships with food, nutritional counseling and exposure therapy are also a major part of the program. These services include meal planning, supervised trips to restaurants and grocery stores and cooking classes as well. Groups cover a wide range of topics including life skills, emotional processing, trauma-informed care, psychoeducation and healthy body image.
While 12-step participation is not a required part of the program, those in need can get referrals to nearby peer support groups as necessary. The staff at ED-180 consists of psychiatrists, LMSWs, CASACs, LCSWs, LMHCs, LMFTs, RNs, dietitians, MDs and additional Master’s and PhD-level clinicians.
Other medical services offered include metabolic testing, biofeedback and neurofeedback. Additional holistic groups are available including drama therapy, music therapy, yoga, meditation and creative arts. Though the above programs can be scheduled as Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), they can also be stepped down to serve as aftercare as well.
Overall, ED-180 is a well-rounded organization which provides comprehensive treatment for eating disorders from a wide range of different perspectives. Treatment includes evidence-based therapy, medical testing, nutritional counseling and a variety of holistic supplements as well. Because each program is so individualized the cost of treatment is likely to vary considerably. Still, ED-180 remains a strong resource for clients in the area.
