Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The UPMC Center for Eating Disorders provides inpatient and outpatient treatment for children with eating disorders.
Inpatient treatment may be useful for children who are severely underweight or in need of medical stabilization because of:
Inpatient care for most individuals with eating disorders is provided at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC in Oakland. For children under 14 years of age, the UPMC Center for Eating Disorders partners with UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh to ensure medical stabilization and begin the process of nutritional restoration.
Inpatient care focuses on medical stabilization and behavioral therapy.
The UPMC Center for Eating Disorders has two levels of outpatient care at:
We have separate PHP and IOP programs for adults and adolescents because they have different needs and benefit from different types of treatment. Both PHP programs run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and include two supervised meals and one snack daily, nutritional counseling, close medical monitoring, individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management as needed.
The program for adolescents also includes a school component. The PHP level of care is designed for patients who require close monitoring and supervised meals, have failed to benefit from less intensive care, are acutely ill but do not require inpatient hospitalization, or need step-down care after inpatient hospitalization.
The IOP programs are three evenings per week from 4 to 7 p.m. and include one meal per evening, nutritional counseling, close medical monitoring, individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management as needed. The IOP level of care is designed for patients who would benefit from the structure of an evening program or from support in continued recovery after returning to work or school.
