Home / Conditions / Eating Disorders / More Info: Private Eating Disorder Services

O’Connor Professional Group is a concierge service and does not accept insurance. We do our best to help clients find providers who accept insurance.

At least 30 million people of all ages and genders suffer from an eating disorder in the U.S; a limited number of individuals in that group receive the treatment that they need.

Individuals with eating disorder-related behaviors require a cohesive plan with vetted, high-quality resources, and tailored eating disorder services to address their specific needs. OPG eating disorder services include options targeted to individual client needs. Many individuals suffering from eating disorders have a co-occurring mental health condition or other behavioral issues, which can be addressed through OPG services.

Summary of Private Eating Disorder Services

OPG offers customized, private services to individuals and family members; these services can be offered in-person or remote. Please refer to the below services for more information.

EATING DISORDER CONSULTATIONS

When attempting to find treatment for an eating disorder, it can be challenging for families and individuals to determine a course of action. O’Connor Professional Group offers assessments for clients and treatment placement consultations for clients interested in residential options, but who are unsure about which facility to choose. Finally, OPG provides multidisciplinary team consultations for complex cases (i.e., multiple co-occurring issues, concerns around a family business). Additionally, consultations include:

  • Gathering of clinical history from family, therapeutic providers, and individuals
  • Development of a plan for clinical, educational, vocational, independent living and social resources

EATING DISORDER COACHING SERVICES

Our eating disorder coaching services include a broad array of activities that can help to ease a client’s transition to the community after residential treatment or provide support as a complement to outpatient clinical services. Coaching services are tailored to a client’s specific diagnosis and can be delivered on a personalized schedule. O’Connor Professional Group matches the eating disorder coach to the client’s clinical profile and personal preferences. Our coaching services also assist clients with organization, time management, and executive functioning. Additionally, eating disorder coaching includes:

INTERVENTIONS

When an individual is unable or refuses to address a pattern of unhealthy behavior, family members, advisors, or employers may reach a point where they require professional help to facilitate a conversation, with the goal of getting an individual to accept help. OPG tailors the type and approach of the intervention, as well as the professionals involved to best address the presenting situation. Additionally, interventions include:

  • Facilitation of meetings with family members to encourage a resistant individual to engage in services
  • Identification of appropriate residential treatment facility or treatment program
  • Follow up and guidance following intervention

CASE MANAGEMENT and CARE COORDINATION

Case management and care coordination are crucial services for anyone struggling with an eating disorder. Individuals require cohesive plans with vetted, high-quality resources, and tailored, coordinated services to address their specific needs and to achieve long-term success. Many families, employers, and advisors struggle with navigating the system and facilitating conversations between multiple professionals. OPG can offer case management and care coordination over the long term to individuals and their various support systems. Additionally, case management services include:

  • Assistance coordinating with an established team or finding a new clinical team (e.g., registered dietitian, therapist, family therapist) 
  • Facilitation of communication between providers, vocational supports, educational supports, family members, and other supports members 
  • Creation of short- and long-term goals, monitoring of progress 
  • Interface with insurance company and financial planners to plan fiscally responsible treatment and care plans

FAMILY, ADVISOR, AND EMPLOYER SERVICES

Treatment for behavioral health issues, such as eating disorders, focuses on the individual, while family members still need resources to manage their own reactions and emotions. OPG employs a “dual-track concept,” with separate professionals coaching the individual and his or her family members, to ensure that all parties find ways to heal. OPG also offers guidance to advisors, employers, and professionals when they encounter behavioral health issues in their work with families, colleagues, or employees. Additionally, family, advisor, and employer services include:

  • Education on diagnosis
  • Crisis management
  • Support on developing and holding healthy boundaries
