Therapeutic Navigation and Placement
When a you are ready to begin the process of assessing and seeking treatment for your loved one, we are here to help you find the best path forward. Our approach is individualized and we want to empower and involve your loved one to make this decision with you.
Northside Consulting will perform an assessment of your loved one and the current state of their disordered eating, as well as psycho-social and family dynamics. We will provide diagnostic information based on our initial evaluation.
Based on your loved one’s situation, we will provide a detailed guide of next steps and options for recovery. We will provide a recommendation on an appropriate level of care and evaluate resources to help you move forward.
Using our knowledge of the eating disorder treatment community, we will provide information to your family on specific treatment centers or resources for your loved one. We can collaborate with treatment centers and their admission departments to aide in the transition process and be an advocate for your family and loved one.
Family Consultation and Support
You may know that disordered eating is impacting a loved one but not yet be prepared to discuss it as a family. Or, you may need help learning the do’s and don’t’s of recovery support while your loved one is away at treatment. In these situations, Northside Consulting is able to provide support and resources to you regardless of your loved one’s status in treatment or recovery.
We can assist your family in understanding the complexities of eating disorders and what the family’s role could be in the recovery process. We will provide you with educational resources as well as peer support options to connect with other families facing similar challenges. Northside Consulting is also interested in helping you learn how to positively influence recovery maintenance with your loved one.
If and when you are ready to discuss the situation more openly with your loved one, we can move to therapeutic navigation and placement.
