Once an individual is accepted into Community Connections, Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program, he or she receives a thorough evaluation by members of our multi-disciplinary eating disorder treatment team, including our Primary Therapist, Registered Dietician (RD)/Nutritionist, Registered Nurse (RN) (if needed)
Each treatment team member's findings are reviewed with our entire clinical staff. As a result, our full knowledge about effective treatment for eating disorders is integrated into each individual’s treatment plan. From these evaluations, an individualized treatment plan is developed, which sets the path for the specific direction of the treatment.
The treatment team meets monthly to discuss and update each individual's treatment plan. We believe the individual and family is an integral part of the treatment team, and is included in setting and redirecting the treatment process.
