Eating Disorder Recovery Residential Care Q&A: Typical Day

Each day of our residential care for those struggling with eating disorders is structured in a way to assist patients in meeting treatment goals and improving quality of life. The dosage of therapy in residential care is much higher than what you’ll see in traditional outpatient or even Rogers’ more intensive outpatient care. However, breaks and leisure time offer balance and prevent patients from becoming overwhelmed. 

In the featured video above, Todd Eisenberg, MD, psychiatrist, and Mia Nuñez, PhD, clinical supervisor, provide an overview of a typical day in residential care for adolescents at Rogers, as well as the rationale for the schedule. The day looks similar for adolescents and adults, but adolescents also participate in school sessions throughout the week.
