A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) treats individuals in a structured and secure healing setting to recuperate from conditions like substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and eating disorders, among others.

Banyan’s Nourish in Recovery program offers eating disorder PHP, which is a comprehensive, all-gender program that treats a mixed group of adults, veterans, and LGBTQ+ members. This level of care offers individualized support for those with eating disorders like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and others.

What is PHP Eating Disorder Treatment? 

Otherwise referred to as day treatment programs, eating disorder PHP programs do not necessitate clients to stay at Banyan rehab locations for the duration of their care. During eating disorder PHP, patients come to our facility for several hours for several days each week for individual and group therapy sessions and then go back to their home or an endorsed sober living facility in the evening. For this reason, partial hospitalization programs are a “step down” from residential treatment or the next level of care patients transition to as they progress or a “step up” from intensive outpatient programs (IOPs).  

PHP is designed to help patients adjust to a daily routine outside of rehab while still receiving support from our experts. This support plays a crucial role in reducing the likelihood of relapse and returning to old eating habits by providing continuous care and structure as clients learn how to apply the coping skills they’re learning to their everyday routines. Since PHP for eating disorders allows people to receive care in-house and then go back home afterward, they can receive daily assistance and direction in developing practical skills for use outside of treatment in their day-to-day lives. 

Goals and Benefits of Eating Disorder PHP  

Our eating disorder partial hospitalization program is designed to increase and inspire a renewed sense of strength, determination, and emotional resiliency while decreasing the shame, secrecy, and isolation that so often perpetuate eating disorder symptoms. This level of care allows patients to reintegrate back into their usual routines while learning to apply newly acquired coping skills.  

Nourish in Recovery's eating disorder PHP offers many benefits, such as:  

  • A secure and hospitable atmosphere.  
  • Personalized attention.  
  • A range of empirically supported interventions, including medical services; medication administration; one-on-one, family, and group therapy; and experiential treatments such as monitored trips and art therapy.  
  • A supportive cohort in which patients can build positive relationships and lend a helping hand to those who are striving to achieve comparable objectives. 

As per studies, other benefits of PHP programs for eating disorders encompass reduced worry, reduced despondency, improved self-esteem, and a better relationship with food and weight (where required). Moreover, for those who transition to our PHP treatment after finishing an inpatient level of care, further benefits may comprise maintaining a consistent course of care and a prolonged treatment period. 

How Do You Know If You Need PHP? 

Determining the appropriate level of care for a patient is done through a clinical assessment. This is the first thing our experts do with clients upon admission to learn more about the severity and duration of their eating disorders and symptoms, their medical history, and more. Patients who qualify for PHP treatment are medically stable, though they typically require external structure to control their symptoms. 

When considering which program would best address the individual’s symptoms, the following things will be considered by our team:  

  • Co-occurring disorders including substance use, depression, and anxiety. 
  • Current living situation and support system available. 
  • Frequency and severity of symptoms. 
  • Level of functioning in daily life (school, work). 
  • Medical issues and concerns. 
  • Psychiatric history. 
  • Risk of self-harm. 

Our Banyan eating disorder programs prioritize client and staff safety, patients’ ability to maintain reasonable levels of non-symptomatic behaviors, and clients’ ability to cooperate with our team in treatment. Therefore, to ensure that each patient is progressing as they must, daily progress is monitored at our facility.
