Determining Level of Care
Before starting treatment, each patient meets with a licensed High Focus Centers clinician for a level-of-care assessment. This individual specializes in diagnosing and treating eating disorders. The initial evaluation helps our multi-disciplinary team understand the psychiatric and medical state of the patient and form the foundation for a clinical recommendation. From there, the appropriate level of care is determined, and an individualized treatment plan is created.
At High Focus Centers, eating disorder treatment is personalized to address the client’s unique needs. No two treatment plans are alike, and everyone has their own unique path to recovery.
