R.I.S.E. is a six bed residential home for persons aged 11 - 18.
The goal of treatment is to help individuals stabilize body weight, develop healthy eating patterns, identify and begin to heal the emotional issues that trigger eating disorder symptoms, and develop the coping skills necessary to prevent relapse.
“recovery” is a continuous process
At TranscendED we understand that eating disorders are complex, often symptoms of deeper, unresolved issues, and often arises to soothe intense emotions. We understand that responsive care must be compassionate, nuanced and multidimensional. We embrace that “recovery” is not an end state but a continuous process toward developing a healthy relationship with self so life affirming choices can be made more consistently. As such, our program is based on the Recovery Model which endorses that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible by addressing the underlying purposes of the disorder, focusing on behavior change by increasing access to skills, gaining peace and acceptance with food and body, developing personal growth thru an increased sense of worthiness and developing value based living.
TranscendED’s Eating Disorder Residential Treatment Program offer clients a structured home-like setting where they can begin to challenge their fears, distortions, and preoccupations with food, weight, and body and set our residentsm on course to developing safer strategies and healthier coping skills. We believe that family involvement is essential. The center provides services for all genders 11 years and older who need more supervision to safely challenge their eating disorder behaviors.
We believe healing can occur in a non-hospital environment and accomplish this by having 24-hour nursing supervision and a multidisciplinary team of eating disorder trained professionals attending to only 6 clients at a time. The setting allows for us to attend to the individual medical, psychiatric, psychological / emotional, social and educational needs of our clients. This high staff-to-client ratio gives us the ability to identify the intricacies of each individual’s strengths and struggles and therefore individualize treatment planning needs.
Our residential offers the following evidence based clinical interventions for up to 12 hours per day
We provide the opportunity for students to continue their education while at TranscendED. Our certified teacher communicates with the student’s school and teachers to establish individualized goals for assignment and coursework completion while in our program. Our teacher and other support staff provides daily support and supervision of schoolwork.
