Evaluations for Eating Disorders

Are you concerned that you, your child, or your loved one may be exhibiting signs of an eating disorder, such as: excessive exercise, body checking, weight loss, avoiding eating, excuses not to eat, using the restroom after eating, finding hidden wrappers, counting calories excessively, using laxatives, complaining their stomach hurts when it's time to eat, hair loss, loss of menstrual cycle, preoccupation with how their body looks, eliminating certain food groups such as carbs or fats, switching to "healthy eating", wearing loose or bulky clothes, scarred knuckles, smell of vomit, hoarding food in strange places, or body image concerns- but aren’t sure if treatment is needed?

If you are reading this, you are not alone. Rather than continue to wonder, question, or watch patterns of eating, schedule an evaluation with one of our eating disorder specialists to discuss your concerns.

As a parent, you may be worried about addressing this topic with your child or teen in fear of making things worse or pushing them to hide their behaviors. Early and aggressive treatments are the best ways to prevent long-term illness and death from eating disorders. Our specialists will listen, ask questions, and provide you with guidance as to the next steps, understanding the complexity of your individual situation and keeping the safety and security of your child’s physical and mental health in mind. If a higher level of care is needed, we will walk you through the steps to helping you or your child get the best possible care.

Have you struggled with chronic dieting or your relationship with food? Have you noticed feeling upset that your exercise or eating routine is interrupted? Do you feel stressed about eating out with other people and you find yourself avoiding social events? Do you go long periods of time without eating and then find yourself overeating and feeling guilty or shameful? Often our society focuses on diet culture and fad diets and believes that losing weight defines a healthy body. Research shows this thought process can lead to disordered eating, medical issues, body image concerns, and an unhealthy relationship with food.

We can help you. Our multidisciplinary team of clinical psychologists, dietitians, and nurses will meet you where you are on your path and they will work together with you to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can discuss your fears, challenges and barriers.

At McCaskill Family Services, our Eating Disorders program sees all ages, genders and all types of eating disorders/disorder eating diagnoses. Our comprehensive eating disorder evaluation consists of:

  • 60 min intake appointment with a member of our team
  • Medical record review completed by our nurse
  • Full team consultation done for every intake (therapist, dietitian, nurse)
  • 45 min treatment planning appointment

To schedule your evaluation, please contact us at (734) 416-9098 or office@mccaskillfamilyservices.com.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

McCaskill Family Services Eating Disorder Treatment and Recovery Program

Do you or your loved one need additional support working through eating disorder recovery? Our Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program is ideal for those who are medically stable and in need of additional structure and support than an outpatient level of care can provide. IOP provides meal planning, therapy, education, connection, support and guidance, all in an individual or group atmosphere.

What happens during IOP?

Our intensive outpatient session meets 3 days each week for 1.5 to 3 hours per day. With our therapists, dietitians and nursing staff, clients will participate in daily therapy, supervised meals, and educational sessions and have the option to add on individual sessions as needed with staff. Each client will also meet weekly with our nursing staff to monitor weight and vitals. Loved ones will have the option to attend our weekly Family Q&A sessions to speak directly to program staff.

Is Intensive Outpatient (IOP) the appropriate level of care right now?

Eating disorder treatment varies from weekly outpatient appointments to inpatient hospitalization. The IOP level of care is appropriate when the client is medically stable and cleared by their medical team, has fair motivation to recover, and is somewhat self-sufficient but needs additional structure and support at this phase in their recovery.

What eating disorders do you treat in IOP?

Our program treats anorexia nervosa, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.

What if I already have a therapist or dietitian?

Our IOP staff will coordinate with each client’s current treatment team. Coordination of care will begin at intake and proceed throughout treatment.

What happens after IOP treatment concludes?

During IOP MFS staff will remain in contact with clients’ treatment team including physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, dietitians, coaches, schools, as needed to assist in coordination of care at program conclusion. If treatment staff determine a higher level of care may be necessary, they will consult with the client and/or family to determine the best course of action. If the client is ready for outpatient level of care, that will be discussed at the discharge planning appointments that are conducted that following week after IOP is completed.

How do we begin?

All interested clients will need to be cleared for treatment by their physician and schedule an intake evaluation with our staff at least 10 days in advance of their scheduled IOP start date. Intake evaluations can be scheduled by contacting our office at (734) 416-9098 or office@mccaskillfamilyservices.com.  Our intake evaluations are a two appointment process and require a medical record review done by our nurse between the two appointments.

Call our office for more information about our individual IOP and for upcoming dates for group IOP.

Group Sessions

Group Sessions are an especially effective format for individuals presenting with eating disorders and/or body image difficulties. Our specialized clinicians guide small group discussions and activities to support each client’s path to recovery. Our groups provide a safe, supportive space to explore eating disorder symptoms and triggers, body image, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, relationships, and personal growth. We use components of empirically based treatment methods to facilitate growth and learning the skills necessary for optimal mental and physical health in daily living. Click Below For:
