Hospital Level Care in a Homelike Setting

The Inpatient level of programming is the highest at Selah for clients who need medical stabilization as a result of their eating disorder. It offers 24/7 medical and psychiatric support, 24/7 nursing supervision, and medical management. Unlike a hospital, clients are not restricted to their beds but are free to enjoy the home and community.

If approved by the treatment team, patients participate in programming and interact with a supportive treatment community of patients and staff. The treatment and medical team surrounds our clients with support to address any complications that often accompany eating disorders. This coordinated care and support helps seamless transition from this acute level of care to a step-down residential level of care.

Should emergency medical intervention become necessary, we have an on-call physician who will assess clients on an individual basis and close relationships with local hospitals.

When Inpatient is Needed

Signs indicating inpatient care is needed for eating disorders:

  • The person has been in outpatient care and has not been showing improvement.
  • A medical condition is present due to the disorder.
  • The person is self harming.
  • The person cannot control restricting or purging behaviors without strong supervision.
  • There are trauma issues which would be too difficult to uncover and deal with in outpatient.
  • There is a secondary diagnosis present that would benefit from intensive focused treatment.
