Treatment and Staff
Incoming clients undergo an extensive assessment process prior to beginning any sort of treatment track. This step serves to evaluate their medical and psychological and ensure proper treatment level placement. Each program includes a combination of group and individual therapy, psychoeducation, life skills and nutritional coaching in addition to some holistic treatment. There are also dual diagnosis services, including medication management, if needed.
The day program, or PHP, which is the most intensive of the treatment tracks, offers up to 25 hours of programming per week. This is typically the starting point for clients who have just completed a residential treatment program but are still in need of steady daily support. The IOP requires between eight and 12 treatment hours weekly, and the standard OP is about three to six hours per week. Additionally, Walker Wellness Clinic offers specialty programs for athletes who have struggled with eating disorders and a weekend-only program.
