BridgeCross works directly with girls and young women between the ages of
11 to 18 dealing with an eating disorder that has not responded to outpatient therapy.
Physicians and families refer clients to BridgeCross due to the trusted reputation for expert care. Our staff doctors of psychiatry and psychology manage debilitating Eating Disorders and co-existing psychological issues.
There are several criteria for admittance to the BridgeCross Residential Treatment Program for Eating Disorders. The following are those that are pivotal to BridgeCross:
- The client must be a girl or young woman between the ages of 11-18;
- The client must be medically stable;
- Clients with Anorexia must be at least 75% of ideal body weight;
- Family must be prepared to be involved as they are part of treatment team; and
- Clients should be prepared to actively participate in their treatment.
To ensure success upon exiting BridgeCross’ Residential Treatment program, clients will have established normal eating patterns, with no purging or use of other inappropriate compensatory behaviors for weight management; Anorexics will be at least 90% of ideal body weight; and a comprehensive outpatient plan will be in place.
