OCEANAIRE PROGRAM GOALS
Healthy eating and other lifestyle behavior patterns: Our staff utilizes a structured behavioral, nutritional and medical program designed to assist residents in learning strategies to recognize, interrupt, and ultimately change problematic eating patterns and beliefs.
Understanding of emotional issues related to the development and persistence of eating disorders: Oceanaire offers individual and group psychotherapy to explore these factors within a safe environment.
Increased ability to make conscious choices: Understanding the dynamic meaning of their eating disorder behaviors, empowers them to more likely feel feel an increased sense of control and make better choices about how to live their lives.
More solid sense of self: Women with eating disorders experience a great deal of conflict and confusion about themselves and their place in the world. Oceanaire’s environment, activities and treatments are designed to provide the safety, encouragement and support necessary for personal growth and developing a more integrated and positive sense of self.
Improved interpersonal relationships: Eating disorders are intertwined in relationships with family, friends, partners and self. Residents of Oceanaire are given the opportunity to examine past and present relationships, and to practice new, more satisfying ways of relating to themselves and others.
Exploration of personal and career goals: Eating disorders tend to begin during adolescence or early adulthood and may often interrupt the development of personal and career goals. Women with eating disorders often become so entrenched in their eating disorders that they lose interest in other activities, relationships and interests. Residents at Oceanaire can learn to rekindle and explore personal interests, skills and career opportunities.
