Family-based treatment principles have been incorporated into higher levels of care. However, outcome data for these programs, and, in particular, follow-up data, are limited. The current study assessed 3-month follow-up data for patients in a family-based partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient program. Patients completed measures of eating disorder psychopathology and depression, while parents completed measures of self-efficacy and expressed emotion. With the exception of paternal self-efficacy, all measures stayed the same or improved between end of treatment and follow-up, suggesting that improvements in a family-based higher level of care can be sustained once families step down to less intensive treatment.
