Lindner Center of HOPE creates individualized treatment plans to help patients succeed

Every patient begins successful treatment with a thorough initial assessment and consultation with a licensed therapist. This initial assessment is generally covered by major insurance plans.


Upon an initial assessment, patients receive a personalized treatment plan. Patients who choose treatment at the Harold C. Schott Foundation Eating Disorders Program at Lindner Center of HOPE are provided with a plan for combating the eating disorder. The plan may include a combination of Family Based Therapy, individual and group psychotherapy, meal planning and support, nutritional education and counseling, medical monitoring and exercise assessment, control interventions, and psychiatric management, to support the patient throughout treatment, equipping the patient with the tools and support he or she needs for continued success at home.

Lindner Center of HOPE effectively treats a range of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa; bulimia nervosa; binge eating disorder; overeating and obesity; and compulsive exercising.

For adults, treatment for eating disorders at Lindner Center of HOPE is available through inpatient care, outpatient care and an eating disorders partial hospital program (PHP).

For adolescents, Lindner Center of HOPE offers a comprehensive diagnostic and intensive treatment option in a residential setting, called Williams House, with consultation from the Harold C. Schott Foundation Eating Disorders Treatment Team. Treatment team members also offer outpatient assessment and treatment through Lindner Center of HOPE Professional Associates (LCOHPA). Cincinnati Children’s at Lindner Center of HOPE encompasses the inpatient and partial hospitalization programs for adolescents at Lindner Center of HOPE.
