Anorexia treatment at the Kahm Center for Eating Disorders includes collaboration with a therapist, dietitian, and doctor. Therapies that are commonly used in treatment can consist of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and family-based therapy (FBT). Individual therapy and group therapy are utilized in outpatient settings to help individuals struggling with anorexia.
The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at the Kahm Center for Eating Disorders takes place in Burlington, Vermont, and is held five hours per day, five days per week. PHP can be utilized as an intensive treatment that can provide a controlled environment to help develop healthy coping skills.
Individuals will be well suited for PHP treatment if they are medically stable, but anorexia still impairs their emotional and mental functioning. Individuals will receive support to avoid engaging in anorexic behaviors and gain skills to remain in recovery.
The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at the Kahm Center for Eating Disorders takes place in Burlington, Vermont, and is held for three hours per day, five days per week. This program is intended to be a step down from the PHP at the Kahm Center. IOP is less intensive, and requires fewer hours of participation.
