The Bridge Program

In eating disorder recovery, patients must protect and maintain recovery achievements made through the process of transitioning from a higher level of care (hospital, residential, PHP, IOP) to outpatient care at home.

The Chesnut Group is offering The Bridge Program, a group series for adolescents who have transitioned from higher levels of care and would like support in addition to their outpatient team. The group will be limited to 8 individuals and closed to allow for cohesiveness and safety among group members.

The Bridge Program will offer 3 group sessions per week, beginning late March 2021:

  • The Process Group will provide a safe environment for clients to share experiences with one another, as well as to give support and feedback to other group participants.
  • The Recovery Skills Group will teach clients strategies to support eating disorder recovery, drawing from ACT, DBT, CBT, and/or concepts from the book, 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder by Carolyn Costin.
  • The Parent & Caregiver Group will provide skill development based on Emotion-Focused Family Therapy, an evidenced-based treatment for families with eating disorders.

Adjunctive Services offered:

  • The Expressive Arts Group will offer clients a creative outlet integral with their recovery process, including the media of writing, art, and music. Art supplies will be provided.
