“Partial hospitalization program,” or “PHP,” is an outdated and confusing term. PHP is the highest level of outpatient (i.e., non-residential) behavioral health care. There are no overnight stays at a hospital or facility; patients live at home and attend programming during the day.

Core Recovery’s Teen Eating Disorder Partial Hospitalization Program treats individuals struggling with a range of eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), and orthorexia.

Core Recovery’s Adult Eating Disorder PHP provides comprehensive, integrated care, five days per week. The program offers a fully day of therapeutic and educational programming for teenagers who are currently attending school remotely or participating in online learning. The PHP program offers a safe, structured, and supervised environment for adolescents to receive the mental health care that will empower them to return to more ordinary routines.

Core Recovery’s clinical team includes therapists, psychiatric professionals, registered dietitians, and case managers, all of whom work collaboratively to meet the individualized needs of every patient.

From the first day of treatment, the Core Recovery clinical team engages warmly, honestly, and empathetically with every teenage patient and their families to develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to meeting that patient’s unique clinical needs and personal goals. Individualized treatment plans for Core Recovery’s patients include a combination of group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, creative expression therapy, diet and nutrition counseling, meal planning, supported meals, and psychiatric / medication management.

Core Recovery’s Teen Eating Disorder PHP uses evidence-based modalities—with an emphasis on dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)—to provide patients struggling with eating disorders a healthy and positive therapeutic experience.

We know that entering a PHP program is a big commitment for our teenage patients and their families. At Core Recovery, our commitment is that the time and effort that our patients put into their care is rewarded by the transformation that they see in their mental and physical health.
