Eating Disorder Treatment Model for Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating
Our Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs were developed to treat Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder. We utilize the expertise of clinical doctors (Internist and Psychiatrist), Psychologists and other Licensed Therapists, Social Workers, Mental Health Technicians, Registered Dietitians, and adjunctive therapists, who are all experienced and dedicated in helping those suffering with these life threatening diseases.
As with any other severe illnesses, our treatment starts after completing a comprehensive clinical and Psychiatric assessment. Initial assessment is directed at identifying complications of Eating Disorders, diagnosis of ED and, if any, co-morbid psychiatric or mental health conditions. Our treatment includes both the Clinical and Psychosocial approach. The treatment plan is coordinated between professionals.
The program incorporates individual therapy and a variety of group processes that include: Family Education, Nutritional Education, Goal Setting, Art Therapy, Body Image Challenge, Food and Feelings Group, CBT, DBT/Coping Skills, Process/Topic Group, Yoga/Exercise and Codependency/Self-Esteem Group. IOP will offer a supported meal. PHP will offer two supported meals per day and a daily snack. Additional services such as Neurofeedback and TMS will be offered for an extra fee unless covered by insurance.
The IOP program’s hours are 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The PHP program’s hours are 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM, five days per week. The ages served are 18-64, with eight maximum in a process group.
Clients will attend three to five times per week, decreasing attendance as they decrease their eating disorder behaviors and improve their daily functioning. Estimated length of stay in the program will vary, per individual needs, from one month to six months.
Most major insurance companies cover the majority of the cost for treatment as eating disorders are covered in the California State Parity Act as a severe and persistent mental illness.
Our Clinical Director, Akikur R Mohammad, MD., is the Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, USC School of Medicine, and board certified in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine.
Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder are among the most severe psychiatric illnesses. Research has demonstrated that an integrated Clinical and Psychosocial approach of treatment has a more effective outcome than Clinical or Psychosocial approach alone. Other Psychiatric complications need to be identified and treated simultaneously to procure better treatment results. Coordination between professionals is essential. At Inspire Malibu, our goal is to incorporate an integrated and coordinated approach of treatment and continuously implement the latest scientific breakthroughs in Eating Disorders, while providing the best possible patient care.
