Adjunct programming for co-occurring disorders is a cornerstone of our successful treatment model. We understand the damaging impact of these disorders and choose the most effective treatments and therapies for each patient based on her personal history and needs.

We believe an important part of residential treatment is preparing our patients for the real world outside of residential treatment. We do this through daily supported exposure therapy, step-down programs and aftercare planning.

Binge Eating Disorder

DRAWING ON extensive knowledge gained from our years of working with those suffering from Binge Eating Disorder, we go far beyond a simplistic focus on diet and exercise alone and treat comprehensively. Our women are assessed for Binge Eating Disorder behaviors prior to arriving at Oliver-Pyatt Centers and any patient that has Binge Eating Disorder may participate in Oliver-Pyatt Center’s tailored programming for Binge Eating Disorder. Our deep understanding of the nuanced interplay between the medical, psychiatric and behavioral complexities of binge eating enables us to provide the best possible and most thorough care for each of our patients. 

WE THOUGHTFULLY EXPLORE each woman’s relationship with food, their body, others and themselves. This is accomplished through mindful eating skills, daily staff support, individual and family therapy, various life affirming activities, meal support / exposure outings and group therapy in which patients process issues that are specific and relevant to these women. This programming helps them move toward full recovery from Binge Eating Disorder, with a goal to embrace life in ways that bring joy and connection, help them find movement and activities they enjoy, create ways to nourish themselves and make plans for the next chapters in their lives. While confronting the real life challenges women with Binge Eating Disorder face on a daily basis, we work together to reduce shame, healthfully nourish and engage in movement and develop the skill of mindful eating. We help them heal from the inside out.
