La Ventana’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a California eating disorder treatment program that provides many of the benefits of an inpatient or residential program without requiring the individual to leave his or her home environment. PHP participants have the choice of living in the comforts of their own home or in La Ventana’s Supportive Living Residence, located close to the outpatient clinic. Our Day Treatment Program for Drug and Alcohol Treatment offers the same benefits as our outpatient treatment for anorexia and other eating disorders.
In terms of eating disorder treatment in California, La Ventana San Francisco is the Bay Area’s only program offering 6 days per week (Monday-Saturday) of PHP with transitional housing within walking distance. It is ideally suited for individuals stepping down from an inpatient/residential setting OR for those who are finding they need more structure and intensive treatment than what they can receive from their outpatient providers. The goal of PHP is to help reduce eating disorder symptoms so as to significantly improve functioning at home, work and/or school. Because La Ventana offers a step-down Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), the treatment environment is conducive to a deep level of personal growth as well as sustainable progress in overcoming the eating disorder.
Adults and adolescents, females and males, are eligible for PHP. Housing is also available for those 18 years and older. Treatment includes individual psychotherapy (or individual case management for those who have an outpatient psychotherapist they wish to work with while in the program), family psychotherapy, nutritional counseling, supervised meals and snacks, and group psychotherapy. The latest in techniques shown to help individuals overcome eating disorders is incorporated into group work along with more traditional modalities. Group offerings include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Process, Art Therapy, Body Awareness, Family Group, and Relapse Prevention.
