Treatment for Adult Women

Adults pursuing treatment at McCallum Place enjoy the freedom to practice recovery and maintain independence, a combination not typically found in a treatment setting. Our program balances structure and independence helping women build the confidence and skills necessary to let go of their patterns of restrictive eating, binge eating, emotional eating, purging, and compulsive exercise.

Adult women may be admitted to any of our programs or levels of care based on treatment recommendations: 24 hour Residential, Extended Partial Hospital (10 hours per day, up to seven days per week), Traditional Partial Hospital (6 hours per day, up to seven days per week), two levels of Intensive Outpatient Programming, Transitional Living, Aftercare and Support Groups. Adult women participating in our 24 hour residential program have two options for housing; our female only house or our co-ed houses.

I really appreciate that the staff validates my thoughts and feelings before trying to work on them. They don’t just say ‘that’s irritational, just stop!
