San Diego Eating Disorder Treatment
Specialized treatment for a complete recovery.
At Sharp, we understand the complexity of an eating disorder. Conditions like anorexia and bulimia can have devastating effects on the mind and body — and both patients and their families can feel overwhelmed by the struggle. But through early diagnosis and proper treatment, complete recovery is possible. And we're here to guide you through that journey.
Two levels of care for a customized approach.
The most effective and long-lasting treatment of an eating disorder is psychotherapy coupled with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs. We know that not every patient is the same, so we customize this approach in a way that works for you. Compassionate, expert caregivers strive to decrease body image distortion, develop coping techniques, eliminate purging, reduce obsessive thoughts and treat physical complications. All achieved through two levels of care:
- Partial-hospitalization treatment — participants receive care at the hospital from 8 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday
- Intensive outpatient treatment — participants attend treatment 2 to 5 days per week, for 3 to 4 hours per day
A team of eating disorder specialists.
Through our program, you're not assigned a doctor — you're supported by a team. Specialists in psychiatry, internal medicine, psychology, nursing and nutrition offer compassionate support. Expect both group and individual therapy, thorough medical assessments, body-image counseling and supervised meals. And with a high staff-to-patient ratio, we're here every step of the way — personalizing your recovery to you.
