Child and Adolescent Eating Disorder Program
Over a quarter century ago, we started a program for young adults with eating disorders. Twenty five years later, we are recognized as a designated referral site for The New York State Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders of Western New York. The model we have developed is viewed as the cornerstone for a statewide integrated, coordinated system of care serving children, adolescents, and young adults from all over New York State, as well as from Pennsylvania.
Our program, within the Division of Adolescent Medicine at Golisano Children's Hospital, is designed to evaluate and treat individuals who have diagnosed eating disorders and to aid those who may be exhibiting signs and symptoms. We see both young men and women who may be in the throes of this disease, or the beginning stages.
As one of the premiere treatment centers for eating disorders, our clinicians have been involved in the development of treatment guidelines with the American Psychiatric Association and the Society for Adolescent Medicine. Our clinical and research team includes individuals who specialize in Adolescent Medicine, Psychiatry and Psychology; Nutrition; Nursing; Social Work; and Teen Life and offers both inpatient and outpatient services.
Continuing to develop and draw upon the most up-to-date and proven methods of treatment, Golisano Children’s Hospital is here to help young people and their families move toward wellness and a healthy adulthood.
