The Highlands Clinical Director Featured in Addiction Professional Magazine
Date:12/23/2013

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

The Highlands' clinical director was recently featured in an article in Addiction Professional magazine, published on December 16. Dr. Siegfried was interviewed by the magazine to discuss The Highlands' new flexible scheduling program.

The Highlands, which treats individuals with eating disorders and other related conditions, has begun offering more flexible hours and schedules for those in need of treatment. Rather than make clients fit into a set program schedule, The Highlands allows those participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to coordinate their treatment schedule with other commitments they have in their life. With a more flexible schedule, participants are able to attend school, go to work, or maintain their other regular responsibilities.

The IOP at The Highlands provides therapy and counseling sessions to clients that are trying to get back to their normal life. “The IOP goal for clients is to get them to start living the life they want,” said Dr. Siegfried. “We want them to be able to balance our services with the life they’re creating.”

In order to meet the scheduling needs of clients, The Highlands offers treatment at different times throughout the day. Dr. Siegfried stressed, however, that the program always provides structure and stability to individuals in recovery. “It’s really important to be able to offer flexibility, but to balance that with the structure and support that’s necessary,” Siegfried told Addiction Professional. “At times, some patients need treatment to be more of a priority than their other life responsibilities.”

Addiction Professional is a nationally renowned magazine, dedicated to "outlining what's working in services for people with addictive disorders."

Nicole Siegfried, PhD, CEDS is a licensed clinical psychologist and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. Dr. Siegfried has more than 15 years of experience working with patients with eating disorders. She is currently the Clinical Director of The Highlands, where she uses individualized treatment methods to help clients address the underlying issues that surround their eating disorders.

The Highlands Treatment Center for Eating Disorders is located in Birmingham, AL. It is an affiliate of Castlewood Treatment Center in St. Louis, MO, and specializes in client-based treatment for eating disorders and related conditions. In addition to the flexible IOP treatment, The Highlands offers partial hospitalization treatment and an intensive outpatient program.
