Interval treatment

The interval treatment model consists of a interval treatment arrangement, where the patients stay at the clinic for a couple of days at the time. Between the inpatient periods at the clinic, the patients are at home, where they practice doing what they have learned at the clinic in their home environment. Usually the basic treatment consists of 3-5 inpatient days every 2-4th week during 6 months and then 15-30 inpatient follow up days spread during about a year after that. A more individual plan for the treatment is possible to make if needed.

The patients get a psychoterapeutic session every day of the inpatient treatment period. They also can participate in group activities (food talk, mindfulness, compassion focus). Medical staff is also available.

The vision is to adapt the treatment to every single patients personality, needs and goals. The goal is also to treat the whole person, both the eating disorder but also other problems and underlying factors if needed. We also think it is important to help the patients to learn to take own responsibility for their body, eating and health. With the interval treatment model they can practice that in a safe environment at the clinic and then also in their home environment, with the support from their therapists by phone.

Staff are available at the clinic at day time. The patients coming to the clinic need to be in a physical shape where they can manage taking basic care of themselves. Patients with extensive nursing needs,  abuse problems, psychotic problems or with active suicide risk can not participate in treatment.

Patients from all parts of Sweden and also from other countries come to the clinic for treatment. The staff speak both swedish and english. Many of the patients get the treatment at the clinic paid by their home hospitals. Others by insurance companies or their employer. Some also pay by themselves for the treatment.
