About Milestones in Recovery

Tell me about Pale Reflections

Milestones buildingMilestones in Recovery is an affiliate of Extended Care Treatment, Inc. Specialized residential and partial hospitalization programs are intended for adults with a primary diagnosis of an eating disorder. The facility and program(s) are accredited by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Heathcare Organizations (JCAHO) and licensed by the Agency for Healthcare Administration.

Milestones’ primary purpose is to provide a comprehensive program to address the specific needs of individuals suffering with an eating disorder and the accompanying mental health issues often associated with eating disorders/food addiction. Providing a safe, structured, and effective course of treatment, Milestones offers apartment-style residences with 24-hour on-site support in addition to a multispecialty team of professionals.

The Residential Complex affords an opportunuty to experience recovery in a "real world" environment. Residents participate in grocery shopping, meal preparation, and daily activities to simulate the realities and challenges of every day living. In effect, the last day in residence and the first day home should not differ.

Milestones buildingLocated nearby are the administrative and clinical offices. The pharmacy, group rooms, clinical staff and administrative offices are housed at this location. In addition, community meetings are held weekly with residents and a member of the clinical team at the apartments. The Milestones house manager resides on-site at one of the apartments within the complex.

Although residents may opt to bring their own vehicles, Milestone’s provides transportation to all scheduled activities. Residents also participate at local support groups during the evenings and weekends: some of which are "elective" meetings chosen by the individual resident as part of their treatment plan.

Built into the program schedule are recreational activities, therapeutic passes, and visitation by invited family and significant others. Although visitors are not permitted to enter the apartments, arrangements can be made for visits off-site. As noted, residents who do bring their vehicles are permitted to use them with staff approval, and, usually when accompanied by another resident.
