The Michigan Medicine Comprehensive Eating Disorders Program provides individualized, compassionate, evidence-based care for patients age 8-24 with eating disorders. Interdisciplinary services are provided by Adolescent Medicine, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Nutrition, Child and Family Life, and Social Work across the spectrum of care including outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, inpatient medical, and inpatient psychiatric services (up to age 18). We recognize that eating disorders are complicated illnesses caused by genetic, psychological and psychosocial factors, and that neither our patients nor their families are responsible for having developed an eating disorder. Our partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment programs, designed to honor the importance of families in the recovery process, are built on the principles of family-based treatment, also known as the Maudsley Approach.
