The Role of Behavioral Health Treatment for Patients with Eating Disorders

Demystifying Higher Level of Care for Eating Disorders

Outpatient clinicians might need to refer a patient to a higher level of care (HLOC) for eating disorder treatment, but what actually happens at that higher level of care can seem mysterious.  This presentation takes a deep dive into eating disorder treatment with a focus on inpatient and residential treatment. The primary goal of this presentation is to enable outpatient clinicians to make effective referrals to HLOC and to help their patients make a smooth transition back to outpatient treatment when they complete HLOC.
