Treatment Resources

Please note: The Western NY Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders does not provide direct treatment services for people with eating disorders.

However, we do provide a full range of services (listed below) that augment direct treatment services offered at programs located across the continuum of care and in the community. Many of our staff are co-located at these programs including The Healing Connection and the Golisano Children’s Hospital Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Program. Western NY Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders services are not typically covered by health insurance. All of our services are provided at no charge under a grant from the NYS Office of Mental Health.

Levels of Care

Not sure what treatment is right for you? We will help you through the process of getting the right treatment.

(Scroll down for treatment services of all levels in various parts of New York State.)

Levels of care include:

Inpatient: Used when an individual requires medical intervention resulting in a hospital stay, which is determined by one's physician.

Residential Treatment: These programs offer a full range of specialized treatments 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Programming includes individual, group, and family therapies, as well as nutritional counseling, meal time assistance, psychopharmacological evaluation and medication management.

Partial-Hospitalization Program: Provides a full range of specialized treatments including individual, group and family therapies, as well as nutritional counseling, meal time assistance, psychopharmacological evaluation and medication management. These programs usually operate from Monday through Friday 7-12 hours a day. You may live at home while attending treatment sessions. Some of these programs offer housing options for individuals living at a distance from the facility.

Intensive Outpatient: Often used as a step down from partial hospitalization or step up from Outpatient. This level of care usually operates a few days per week, several hours per day. Programming includes individual, group, and family therapies, as well as nutritional counseling and meal-time assistance.

Outpatient: Used when individuals do not require 24/7 care or partial hospitalization care but do require mental health and/or psychological interventions, such as:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Family Counseling
  • Group Counseling

Note: The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)’s website has a chart of guidelines for appropriate level of care based on medical status, motivation to recover, co-occurring disorders, etc.)
