Levels of Care

When you call a WNYCCCED core facility or one of the other Western NY resources, an initial contact person will greet you. In most cases this will also be the person called the intake/clinical coordinator. This person is the one who will help you through the process of getting the right treatment. She/he will ask you several questions over the phone to help:

  1. Establish a tentative diagnosis and determine proper treatment site.
  2. Obtain information regarding the primary care physician (pcp) and any outpatient mental health care providers, previous treatment, insurance, etc.
  3. Assure efficient triage.
  4. Provide specific feedback, education and instructions to the caller.
  5. Schedule an initial visit.

Callers making general inquiries regarding information about eating disorders are also directed to resources such as the National Eating Disorders Association website, other web sites and resources in the community such as the Eating Disorders Network Family and Friends Support Group.

There are different types of resources available depending upon the level of care one needs. These are some of the alternatives:

Inpatient

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

Outpatient

Outpatient treatment is used when individuals do not require inpatient treatment but do require mental health and/or psychological interventions, such as:

Partial-Hospitalization Program

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 centers usually operate from Monday through Friday about 7 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

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment 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.
