There are many options for those that need the services of an eating disorder clinic, one of those options is a day program, where your child will attending during the day but still come home at night to their family. This option is a step down from full time residential care and is an excellent option for those that are medically stable but have a severe eating disorder that needs intensive treatment. Day programs will vary depending on the eating disorder clinic, but normally span 3 full meals and a snack time to help teach your child how to eat properly.
They will also have access to group, family and individual therapy as well as counseling for nutrition and exercise. A school component may be available in some eating disorder clinics so that your child will not fall behind in their studies.
