Why Choose Aspire Wellness Center Sacramento, CA
Our Eating Disorder Treatment Center offers programs for adults and teens that are flexible and client centered. We do not apply a cookie cutter approach to treatment. Our clinical team is made up of masters and doctorate level therapists as well as experienced registered dietitians and nutritionists who have committed their careers to helping individuals recover from their eating disorders and related co-occurring disorders.
We also apply a real world approach to recovery that is not used in most other treatment programs. This unique approach involves giving the patients the freedom and encouragement to practice what they have learned at our program. For example, our patients do their own grocery shopping and meal preparing under the guidance of our clinical and dietary team, which is very different from the traditional approach where the clinical team chooses and prepares the same meals for all the patients.
Better Treatment Outcomes
We have found that our patients experience much better outcomes and lower rates of readmission as a result of our industry first treatment approach, which requires our clients to learn how to nourish themselves through supervised practice. Our clinical and nutrition team shows our clients how to shop, teaches them about the different food groups, advises them on how to easily identify proper portion size, and lets them practice preparing their own meals.
Our decision to limit group sizes – another feature you will not find at most other programs – also helps our patients receive the individual attention that they need and deserve while in treatment. Most importantly, our experienced team of clinicians helps those suffering from an eating disorder to work through the negative thoughts and feelings that were associated with their unhealthy eating behaviors.
Continuum of Care
While most programs offer either Residential or intensive outpatient treatment, we currently offer all levels of care including Supervised Housing (on-site staff 7 days per week), Partial Hospitalization (up to 8 hours of individual and group therapy per day, up to 6 days per week), and Intensive Outpatient (up to 4.5 hours of treatment per day, up to 6 days per week). levels of care.
This is extremely beneficial for our patients, because they know that when they are ready to step down from Residential to Partial Hospitalization or Intensive Outpatient, they can expect to receive the same high quality of care and individualized treatment planning as they continue through treatment. A full continuum of care is also important to help prevent relapse of negative behaviors, which is not uncommon when patients are bouncing around from one program to another with no congruency of treatment quality or approach.
