|Teen Summer Program
We are excited to offer an Intensive Summer Program for Teens at Casa Serena.
The program will operate for 8 weeks during the summer vacation.
This is an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Option for female and male teens
(14-17 years of age) who are struggling with Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating
Disorders. The program is designed to provide a Step Up from Outpatient care when
the client needs more structure and support to address their recovery needs. It can
also be a Step Down from Inpatient or Residential settings, where the client may need
the support to re-integrate back into their life after a higher level of care.
The program operates Monday through Thursday from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.
The full day program consists of two issue specific groups and a lunch
meal each day.
(See the schedule below.)
We help each client to develop an individualized treatment plan to meet their specific
needs. Our goal is to help every client to decrease the destructive behaviors and to
develop more positive coping mechanisms to deal with the issues that drive the
Our Dietary Program
We use an Intuitive eating approach to working with re-feeding and normalizing the
eating plans for each client. On Mondays the meals are prepared with the dietitian or
we go out to a restaurant. The other days hot meals are brought in and eaten family
style with the staff. Vegetarian options are available.
The program also includes a weekly Individual therapy session, a Multi-Family
Therapy Group, and a Dietary Consultation. These appointments are setup before or
after program so that each client can take part in the full program.
The Teen Program is covered by most insurance companies or we have a private pay
option available. Call Astra at the center and she can help you verify your insurance
and set up your financial contract.
