Girls and young women who have anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa can also receive eating disorders treatment through Rancho San Diego’s Adolescent Eating Disorder Program, which provides individualized treatment plans and holistic behavioral health treatment services, including:

  • Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Individual, family and group therapy sessions
  • Nutrition and body-image therapy
  • Experiential treatments such as yoga and equine therapy

Maintaining a GPA while receiving treatment

Sovereign Health’s Rancho San Diego facility offers an educational program, a gender-specific classroom environment with top-of-the-line technology, an academic facilitator and tutors. Adolescents have the opportunity to obtain course credits while they are in treatment at Sovereign Health. Students can enroll in an online credit-recovery course for any classes they have previously failed or a single course provided by the local school district, depending on their current transcript. Upon parental request, a less rigorous and more individualized course of academics can also be scheduled during treatment.

Family therapy

Sovereign Health understands that treating substance abuse or mental health issues in a teenager must involve the entire family to be effective. Our Adolescent Program contains an intensive family therapy component that addresses the interpersonal dynamics that are unique to each group of loved ones involved in recovery. These intensive services are provided at each teen rehab center in a supportive manner with the overall goal of maintaining or restoring positive relationships.
