Medical, Psychiatric and Clinical Care

FOLLOWING MEDICAL STABILIZATION, our primary treatment goal is to provide the individual with a clearer understanding of medical complications of eating disorders. Physicians and nurses are in integral part of the treatment team.

OUR PSYCHIATRISTS are expert in understanding and addressing the interplay of eating disorders and co-occurring presentations. Psychiatric care at Oliver-Pyatt Centers is provided by board-certified psychiatrists who supports each client throughout their stay. Weekly sessions ensure proper medication management to treat eating disorder symptoms and co-morbid issues. Psychiatrists are available 24/7 and are on call for emergencies.

The philosophy of care at Oliver-Pyatt Centers is grounded in mindfulness and the belief that each person has the capacity for a mindful relationship with food and their body. Present in every aspect of our CLINICAL PROGRAM, this philosophy encompasses nutrition and eating, as well as movement.

A HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED TREATMENT PLAN

Every individual that comes to Oliver-Pyatt Centers is seen as a human being first.  We know they come to us with their own psychological and medical histories, life circumstances, fear, goals and motivation.  Every aspect of our eating disorder treatment, from goals to meal planning, family work to aftercare planning, is tailored to meet the particular needs of the individual and their recovery.

N

THOROUGH MEDICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC MANAGEMENT

The medical team at Oliver-Pyatt Centers is integrally involved in residential care through daily interaction with patients throughout their stay and communication with the clinical and nutrition teams. Patients are treated by a psychiatrist and a nurse practitioner, receive nursing and medical assessments and lab work when indicated. Additionally, we specialize in the psychiatric and medical management of co-occurring disorders, including mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, PTSD and addiction which affect many of the patients we treat.

N

HIGH FREQUENCY INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

At Oliver-Pyatt Centers, psychotherapy sessions occur with high frequency throughout each clients stay, establishing a relationship of trust, collaboration and hope between the patient and their therapist that will continue through all levels of care. This allows for full exploration of the core issues driving the eating disorder and the building of a roadmap for authentic and long-term recovery. A clients therapist will stay with them from residential through day treatment programming

N

INTIMATE RECOVERY ENVIRONMENT AND A HIGH STAFF-TO-PATIENT RATIO

Our programs are beautifully and comfortably decorated and are located in safe, suburban neighborhoods. Our multidisciplinary treatment team includes recovery coaches who assist residential patients in all aspects of daily living, providing mentorship, guidance and affirmation. Our primary therapists maintain a manageable caseload that allows for extensive communication with the family and outpatient providers. We believe this environment encourages our patients to significantly connect to every member of their treatment team and helps them do the difficult work of recovery.

N

DAILY SUPPORTED EXPOSURE THERAPY

We integrate residential patients into real life through guided outings in the community from the earliest appropriate stage in their recovery process. Meals are prepared by our private chefs and reintroduce a wide variety of tastes, textures and cuisines. Served in a family setting with staff support and encouragement, meals at Oliver-Pyatt Centers emphasize the sociability and warmth of eating with others. We believe this approach helps approximate real-life living and dining experiences and is a key factor in relapse prevention.

N

COMPREHENSIVE CONTINUUM OF CARE AND EXTENSIVE AFTERCARE PLANNING

In addition to residential treatment, we offer day treatment to support clients as they build on their progress and work toward increased freedom from the eating disorder. When a client is ready to fully leave our care, we provide a detailed aftercare plan that addresses their ongoing treatment and recovery needs. We develop the plan based on a thorough assessment of the biopsychosocial environment the client will face upon their return home, factoring in family dynamics, spirituality and individual life goals. Strategies for academic reintegration are included in the aftercare plans for our clients returning to school. We believe a gradual progression to independence allows our clients to embody their recovery more fully.
