CONFERENCE HOST – ED-180 EATING DISORDER TREATMENT PROGRAMS, Garden City, NY
ED-180 was developed by Board Certified psychiatrist Dr. Jeffrey DeSarbo and the NY Eating Disorder Medical Group and is the only private, physician-owned and supervised treatment program offering intensive, outpatient care for eating disorders in the Long Island and New York City area. An eating disorder is first and foremost a medical/psychiatric condition and any safe and serious treatment approach begins with medical supervision and the management of a coordinated team effort toward patient recovery. ED-180 programs are evidence-based and utilize cutting-edge technology, unique program designs and unsurpassed facilities. ED-180 offers medically-supervised programs and is staffed with experienced specialists who provided compassionate care. Whether a patient seeking initial treatment, adding an additional component to their treatment, or needs to step-up or step-down their level of care, the professionals who work with the program can help create a plan for recovery.
ED-180, located in Garden City, New York, is comprised of a dedicated team of physicians, therapists, nutritionists and other clinicians who recognized that there was a “missing-link” in eating disorder treatment. ED-180 was created to help fill the void of a shortage of effective programs for patients that needed additional services with a higher level of care for outpatients who struggle with eating disorders and related self-esteem issues, mood disorders and related conditions. The ED-180 program philosophy is to offer programs that have the following attributes:
1) An environment that promotes peace and tranquility with a feeling of safety and comfort.
2) A facility that not only has warm therapy offices and dining facilities, but also has a medical suite for safe patient monitoring.
3) A treatment approach that is comprehensive and evidence-based, using a combination of proven techniques and cutting-edge methods.
4) A multi-disciplinary staff of physicians, therapists, nutritionist and support staff that can fully integrate the medical/biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of patient care.
5) A treatment team that is caring and compassionate and dedicated to remaining up-to-date on research and all the latest treatment advances.
6) Individual therapy, groups, programs, excursions and courses that make an impact, create change, and are innovative and non-traumatic and includes the family as a source for recovery.
7) A group program that can also be custom tailored to the individual’s needs.
8) A program that is outcome-driven towards specific goals, not time-frame driven.
For intakes, assessments or to find an eating disorder specialist who can help with recovery, call the offices at (516) 280-3544.
PREMIER SPONSOR – Avalon Hills Eating Disorders Program, Logan, UT
Avalon Hills Eating Disorders Program is a residential treatment center specializing in the treatment of adolescent and adult women diagnosed with all types of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Based on the philosophy that eating disorders are bio-psycho-social in nature, we recognize recovery begins with medical stabilization and nutritional rehabilitation. We also believe full recovery requires the development of new insights, new experiences, and an integration of new information. Avalon Hills assists females of all ages to manage the ineffective thoughts, emotions, behaviors, interactions, and cultural influences that have contributed to the development of disordered eating, co-morbid mental disorders and concomitant medical concerns.
Our treatment approach is evidence-based and holistic in nature, with a foundation in Prochaska’s Stages of Change model. We utilize an integration of cognitive therapies such as and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), paired with behavior activation and skills-based training such as Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Each activity is therapeutically designed to help residents incorporate the principles they learn during treatment into the context of their everyday lives, so they can apply them to the pressures they will inevitably face upon return to their home environment. Avalon Hills remains committed to individualized, comprehensive programming for all clients we serve. We operate from a Treat to Outcome Philosophy, meaning, we are committed to treating clients until they can behaviorally demonstrate an ability to maintain therapeutic gains in a less structured setting, rather than treating to insurance company benefit. Ability to generalize new skills learned in treatment is tested through a series of individually tailored home visits with specific therapeutic targets. This allows clients to re-integrate gradually back into their home environments and uncover areas of additional work while remaining in the structure of residential treatment. Avalon Hills has a reputation for excellence and innovation in treatment, long-term patient outcomes, and patient and family education. Avalon Hills is located in Northern Utah, 90 minutes north of Salt Lake City in a breathtaking mountain atmosphere, providing ample opportunities for experiential activities in the outdoors in all four seasons.
PREMIER SPONSOR – Clementine, FL, OR, NY
A Letter to Parents from Dr. Lauren Ozbolt: I can recall first wanting to become a physician, when my mother would take me to the pediatrician’s office when I was feeling sick. Often times, my doctor would sit next to me and calmly explain what was going on and the available options for treatment. My mother would always reply in the same way. She would say, “If she were your daughter … what would you do?” He honestly replied and that was what we did. To this day, that is how I think about the adolescents we treat, and that is the approach that permeates the air at Clementine. With each adolescent, we think, “If this was my daughter, what would I do …”
Here’s what we do.
At Clementine, your daughter’s clinical team takes the time to get to know the girl underneath the eating disorder. We empower and equip her with the tools to help her overcome her eating disorder. We feel the best care is collaborative and we invest a great deal of time making parents “experts” on the most innovative treatments, neurobiological causes and latest research. In order to treat a disease, it is important for you and your daughter to fully understand the illness and our rationale for treatment. At the heart of the Clementine program is commitment to your daughter. While education about treatment of eating disorders is invaluable, it is only a part in what makes our treatment unique. We truly delight in knowing her and your family and take pride in aligning with you.
Additionally, Clementine has brought together a group of committed parents to advise our clinical teams on treatment matters from a family perspective and to serve as a resource for families in the difficult throes of contemplating treatment options for their child. Meeting monthly, this group is an integral part of what brings Clementine’s programming “full circle”. Outside of the teen herself, the family is who we serve; the advisory board voices are our guides. This allows us to achieve our mission of helping each adolescent replace their eating disorder with healthy skills and an understanding of how to live a life that reflects their individuality. Clementine has recently opened the only residential eating disorder program for adolescent girls in Westchester County, NY, joining our other Clementine programs in South Miami, FL and Portland, OR; providing the highest level of care outside of a hospital, in the beauty of a home. I hope you have a chance to see Clementine Briarcliff Manor’s Clinical Director Dani Small speak on “What Parents Need to Know” and stop by our table to pick up a card on mindful eating practices. Dani will also talk with you about the experiences adolescents have with us.
Most of all at Clementine, your daughter’s goals become our goals, and start a beautiful restorative process of getting her on track to become the amazing young woman she is destined to become. – Lauren
