Partial Day Treatment Programs
A New Journey offers Day Treatment for women and men requiring a higher level of structure, attention, and support to successfully be in recovery from their eating disorder. This program offers structured group therapy and supervised meals and snacks. Treatment involves a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks determined by the individualized meal plan, which is a collaboration between the client and the Registered Dietitian.
Clients meet with their Registered Dietitian for individual consultations, Nutrition education, and “hands on” nutrition activities. Cooking, grocery outings, meal outings, and other “real life” activities are part of each individuals treatment plan. Therapy groups are led by licensed therapists and each individual meets with his or her therapist for individual therapy and family therapy if clinically appropriate.The program psychiatrist is available for psychiatric consultation and completes the multidisciplinary team.
Each treatment day begins with mindful meditation and intention setting circle and includes groups such as Body Image, Process Group, Nutrition Groups, Trauma Group, Substance Abuse Education, Psychoeducation, CBT, and DBT Group, to name a few. Workshops are also provided by outside professionals to add to the holistic experience each individual will experience and to support in pulling together a comprehensive, individualized relapse prevention plan and aftercare plan meeting each clients specific needs.
Clients are also able to and encouraged to reside in our beautiful Journey Home residence for additional community support during the course of treatment. The home is within walking distance to the treatment center, a park, local shopping, restaurants, 12 step meetings, and the beach. Additional support groups and therapeutic activities help to structure out the remainder of the day and the weekends at Journey Homes. Supportive and understanding Resident Assistants reside on site to support our men and women with independent living skills, sobriety and recovery goal setting, and offer gentle guidance.
