Accredited by the joint commission


WE ARE acutely aware of the pain and challenge of an eating disorder, and we know the decision to enter treatment is one that requires great courage.

Oliver-Pyatt Centers believes a small, intimate environment is most effective for the treatment of eating disorders. Because of this, we have a limited number of spots, so it is important to start the admission process early.

We are committed to working with you to make treatment possible. Our Vice President of Admissions, Dr. Melissa Orshan Spann, is here to assist you and your family, to answer any questions or concerns you may have, and to serve as a guide through the process of entering treatment. Please call Melissa at 866.511.HEAL(4325); she will arrange a phone interview and advise you on next steps.

You will be asked to complete our admissions packet, beginning with the application and questionnaire. Once submitted, your questionnaire will be reviewed, and with your permission, we will contact your outpatient treatment professionals. Melissa will then assist you with the timing of your medical evaluation, which is required before entering our program, and an intake assessment will be scheduled. This assessment will take place via phone with one of our clinicians within two weeks of admission date, and will last 60-90 minutes.

We understand the time moving toward admission can be challenging. To help you feel more at ease, please click below to read the answers to some frequently asked questions.

We look forward to partnering with you in this journey.
