Open house set for October 24, 2019, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
On September 30, 2019, Seeds of Hope, a branded service line part of Onward Behavioral Health and specializing in the treatment of eating disorders, announced the opening of Seeds of Hope at Mountainside, a new residential treatment center at 272 Hamlin Highway, Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania.
Seeds of Hope at Mountainside is a small, intimate program for adult women specializing in the treatment of eating disorders and co-occurring conditions with a 1:4 clinician to client ratio. The program utilizes traditional therapies as well as holistic methods such as trauma-sensitive yoga and biofeedback for a whole-person treatment approach. Nutrition education and stabilization is a large component of the program. Dietitians and counselors guide participants in experiential therapies, such as grocery shopping and restaurant dining in preparation for typical daily encounters after discharge.
Seeds of Hope at Mountainside also treats co-occurring mental health, substance use, and trauma concerns to provide a comprehensive treatment experience and complements the Seeds of Hope outpatient, intensive and partial hospitalization programs for adults and adolescents currently offered in Exton, Paoli, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“We are pleased to extend the service offerings of Seeds of Hope with the Mountainside residential facility in Lake Ariel. It adds a critical component to our existing continuum of care which is so important in the treatment of adult women with eating disorders,” stated Sarah Deutchman, Vice President of Operations.
