The medical care is overseen by doctors who are experts in the field of child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry with specialties in anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and severe mental illnesses. The facility resides on 12 acres of beautifully managed grounds located in central New Jersey’s rolling hills. Hidden River provides a comprehensive specialty program including medical and nutrition support, psychological education with practical skills training, and social activities to support the recovery and healing of girls and young women struggling with eating disorders and related mental health disorders. Our multidisciplinary team provides a compassionate evidence-based goal-oriented approach to guide patients in their healing process. An atmosphere preserving the individual’s dignity while they overcome very serious illnesses is exhibited by each staff member throughout treatment. We focus on addressing the specific medical, psychiatric, and psychological symptoms and their correlating behaviors with patience. Family involvement is central to a patient’s treatment at Hidden River. It begins on the day of the patient’s arrival with a facility orientation tour, education, and the beginning of weekly family therapy. The parents will receive weekly updates from various members of the treatment team. The features of the family therapy program are specifically designed through consideration of each family’s needs using the same dignified and thoughtful delivery shown to the patient.
