Continuum of Care
Children's Eating Disorders Program offers a continuum of care, including partial hospitalization and evening outpatient programs. We will help you to determine the level of care that best suits your needs.
Our partial hospitalization program is a 12-hour a day program during which time patients engage in various groups to address the Eating Disorder and underlying conditions as well as other mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Once a patient has completed the partial hospitalization program they have the option of attending the partial hospitalization less-intensive program, a four hour a day, three day a week program.
The partial hospitalization less-intensive program provides group therapy, support and guidance to children and adolescents between partial hospital care and individual outpatient treatment programs. The less-intensive outpatient group meets three evenings per week to strengthen patients' abilities to cope and eat appropriately during this crucial time.
Children's can assist in finding housing options for patients and their families who live more than 60 miles from Omaha. The Carolyn Scott Rainbow House provides housing for patients at Children's Hospital.
