Continuum of Care
Children's Eating Disorders Program offers a continuum of care, including outpatient, partial hospital, and evening outpatient programs. We will help you to determine the level of care that best suits your needs.
Children's Eating Disorders Program has implemented a new care level for pediatric eating disordered patients. The new evening outpatient program provides group therapy, support and guidance to children and adolescents from age 8 to 20 between partial hospital care and individual outpatient treatment programs. The intensive outpatient group meets three evenings per week to strengthen patients' abilities to cope and eat appropriately during this crucial time. Admission to the program is based on APA guidelines. Patients must be medically stable and not require extensive medical monitoring. Patients must weigh more than 80 percent of their ideal body weight, and have not expressed suicidal intentions.
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.
