Women can attend our partial hospital program from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. five days per week, or our intensive outpatient program from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. three days per week. A woman may enter treatment at any level, moving up or down the continuum as needed, while remaining with her clinical team and individual therapist.
Our multidisciplinary team of board certified psychiatrists and highly qualified counseling professionals provide comprehensive, compassionate care for women and their families.
Since its inception in 1991, the program has expanded to include:
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – for women who have difficulty processing emotions, and who tend to respond to their emotions with self-harming behaviors and suicidal thoughts
- Trauma – to help women understand the impact of trauma or early experiences in their lives
- Trauma and Addiction – committed to helping women understand the relationship between trauma and substance abuse, and work on abstinence through random drug screens and relapse prevention plans
- Emotion Regulation – which incorporates mindfulness-based compassion and DBT-based principles to increase coping and regain a life worth living
- Emotional Eating – to help women understand the connection between emotional dysregulation and eating behaviors, while offering alternative coping strategies and healthier life skills
- Teen Girls’ Program – offering a supportive and safe environment for girls ages 13 to 18 to address mood and behavioral issues and explore developmental issues as they transition into young adulthood
In addition, Princeton HealthCare System offers inpatient and partial hospital eating disorders care at the Center for Eating Disorders Care at University Medical Center at Princeton.
