The Woodlands, TX (PRWEB) September 26, 2016
Eating Recovery Center, The Woodlands (ERC, The Woodlands), a trusted provider of comprehensive treatment for eating disorders, has expanded its services and has relocated to The Woodlands Medical Center on St. Luke’s Way in The Woodlands, TX. ERC, The Woodlands will now offer a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), in addition to its existing Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). This expansion further extends ERC’s continued commitment of increasing access to the very best care for patients, families and providers in the treatment of—and recovery from—eating and related disorders in the greater Houston area.
To accommodate its PHP, along with its current IOP, ERC, The Woodlands has moved its facility to a new 7,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art treatment center located within The Woodlands Medical Center. This larger, more centrally located facility opened on August 29, 2016.
As a result of the facility expansion, ERC, The Woodlands will now be able to accommodate 18 patients, ages 12 and older as part of its PHP, which will run from 8:30am – 6:30pm and will include three meals and two snacks a day. In addition, ERC, The Woodlands has expanded capacity in its IOP to accommodate 32 patients. IOP will now be offered from 3:30pm – 6:30pm to align with the PHP hours.
Led by a multidisciplinary team of experts, including Deborah Michel, Ph.D., CEDS, Founder and Clinical Director, ERC, The Woodlands will now provide access to a psychiatrist and internal medicine physician. It will also continue to provide eating disorder education and consultation services for the dedicated community of outpatient providers in The Woodlands area.
“This expansion enables ERC, The Woodlands to help more patients and families through a variety of intermediate levels of treatment, while continuing to offer the same high quality of clinical care and core team of professionals,” says Dr. Michel. “These new treatment options and brand new facility build upon our already existing foundation of community connection, strong patient and family relationships, and collaboration with outpatient providers.”
ERC, The Woodlands will celebrate it’s opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Wednesday, October 19th from 3pm – 7pm. Along with the center’s leadership and clinical staff, Dr. Philip Mehler, ERC Executive Medical Director will be the special guest, presenting a one hour Continuing Medical Education Unit from 4pm – 5pm on When an Eating Disorder Patient Needs Medical Treatment: Perils, Pitfalls and Follow-up.
