What Our Clients, Their Families, and Clinical Partners Are Saying

Our Expert Eating Disorder Leadership Staff

Family Programming

Our family therapy program provides education, advocacy, and therapy for the family members of our clients. Upon admission, each client meets with their family therapist to establish family and relationship goals, identify family members, and learn more about their childhood, past relationships, and their eating disorder behavior. The family therapist then calls the person(s) the client has identified as her support system for an introduction to family therapy and sets up the first family session via telephone, Skype, or in person. It’s vital to have someone other than the client provide their perspective of the presenting problem(s) to aid in treatment planning.

At Magnolia Creek, we believe families have a choice to either maintain any type of dysfunction or recreate a healthy balance. Both the client and their loved ones can discuss the presenting problem(s) in a safe space of vulnerability while expressing their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Our family therapy program provides education, coaching, advocacy, and therapy to help create change using the following therapeutic models.

Academics in Magnolia Creek’s Adolescent and Teen Program

In Magnolia Creek’s Adolescent and Teen Program, the academic component ensures a seamless blend of education and recovery, fostering a supportive environment for teens to reclaim their lives. It is important for adolescents receiving treatment to continue their education as it helps them avoid academic setbacks upon discharge from treatment. Magnolia Creek employs a full-time certified teacher on campus to assist clients with their educational needs while in treatment. The teacher works with each client’s home school to provide an individualized educational plan to assist the client with continuing education while in treatment. Clients are provided school time for two hours each day, and they are given a center-issued device to work on schoolwork while being monitored by the on-site educator.
Our educator, Racheal Fine, M.Ed., is an Alabama-certified, highly qualified teacher with a background in teaching Mathematics and has taught math courses at all levels, from 6th to 12th grade. While she is able to assist in other subjects, most clients typically struggle with the subject of math, and she is able to provide specialized assistance with that. The teacher is also able to assist in tutoring other subjects, writing workshops, proofreading papers, post-secondary education planning, scholarship applications, etc. Racheal also works with clients to ensure a smooth transition back to their home schools upon completion of our program and provides any documentation needed by the school.
