What We Treat

AT OLIVER-PYATT CENTERS, the residential program provides a full continuum of care for eating and co-occurring disorders. Residential care aids a full recovery by providing 24-hour nursing and the highest level of medical, psychiatric, clinical, and nutritional care available outside a hospital setting. Our residential programming is equipped to treat a wide range of disordered eating, including:

  • Binge Eating Disorder – Oliver-Pyatt Centers is among the nation’s leaders in providing treatment for binge eating disorder, which is the most commonly occurring eating disorder in the United States. It is characterized by frequent and repeated binge eating episodes and a sense of losing control over eating habits. Binge eating disorder may have a negative effect on an individual’s physical and psychosocial health.
  • Anorexia Nervosa – Characterized by food restriction and body image distortions, anorexia nervosa can pose serious health risks for an individual. Treatment for anorexia nervosa includes nutrition education and therapy, as well as behavioral therapy and other forms of psychotherapy. 
  • Bulimia Nervosa – Defined by repeated binge-eating and subsequent purging episodes, bulimia nervosa can require residential treatment to achieve a full recovery. As with other types of eating disorders, bulimia nervosa treatment benefits from a multifaceted and compassionate approach to recovery. 
  • Other Eating and Exercise Disorders – Eating disorders come in many forms, and although the three mentioned above are the most common, virtually any eating disorder can have a profound effect on an individual’s well-being. We can provide treatment for ARFID, orthorexia nervosa, compulsive exercise, OSFED, diabulimia, and many co-occurring disorders.

Step-DOwn Care and Aftercare

WE BELIEVE an important part of residential eating disorder treatment is preparing our clients for the “real world” outside of our facility. Without preparation, returning to daily life following residential treatment can be fraught with triggers for relapse. We work to prevent this through daily supported exposure therapy, step-down programs, aftercare planning and by providing comprehensive residential programming.

When ready, clients can step down from residential treatment to day treatment programming.  We also provide alumnae services that help our graduated clients stay in touch with their peers and access support in their recovery. Click here to see more about our alumnae services.
