Evidence-Based Comprehensive Psychological, Nutritional and Medical Care

McCallum Place – St. Louis, Missouri

McCallum Place’s 24 Hour Residential Programs are designed with the exceptional care of each patient in mind, offering a healthy atmosphere of comfort, privacy, and freedom not possible in traditional hospital settings.

Our residential treatment provides intensive therapy, nutritional rehabilitation, round-the-clock support, and medical stabilization in a compassionate and intentional environment.

Intensive Outpatient

The IOP level of care is for individuals needing a more structured program than outpatient therapy alone, but who do not require partial hospitalization.

Our programs are flexible and allow individuals to continue their everyday activities, such as work or school. Patients have the opportunity to practice food preparation, grocery shopping, and eat supported meals at local restaurants.

  • Psychotherapy groups

Adolescents & Children (Ages 10-17)

Programming addresses emotional regulation and building skills to support recovery. Families are integrated into the treatment, including weekly sessions, opportunities to eat with their child and communication with the treatment team. For families using the Family-Based Treatment model, FBT principles are incorporated into treatment.

Students stay up to date with their school through on-site teachers, study time and tutoring.

Adults (Ages 18 and up)

Adults have separate programming and therapy addressing relationships, trauma, coping skills and body-image, increasing self-directedness and the confidence needed to reduce relapse. Family therapy is based on preferences and needs. For students, we work with colleges to create a successful transition plan to return to school.

Athletes (St. Louis only)

Designed specifically for high school, college, elite and professional athletes with eating disorders, The Victory Program at McCallum Place improves the physical and psychological health needed to maximize sport performance. Treatment teams include a sport psychologist, sport dietitian, strength and conditioning coach, physician, and therapists, all who are committed to an athlete’s personal and athletic success.
