Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) for eating disorders is a treatment approach that allows individuals to participate in their everyday activities, like attending school or work, while still receiving comprehensive care for their eating disorders. These programs are often recommended for individuals who do not require 24-hour supervision but still need more care than traditional outpatient therapy.

IOPs typically involve multiple therapy sessions per week, including individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and nutritional counseling. The goal of these programs is to provide individuals with the skills and support they need to maintain their recovery in the long term.

What Is an Intensive Outpatient Program for Eating Disorders? 

Intensive outpatient programs for eating disorders are short-term, intensive treatment approaches that allow individuals to receive comprehensive care while still participating in their everyday activities. IOPs typically involve multiple therapy sessions per week, including individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and nutritional counseling. The goal of these programs is to provide individuals with the skills and support they need to heal.  

IOPs are often recommended for individuals who do not require 24-hour supervision but still need a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy. IOPs typically take place in a clinic or other designated location and may last anywhere from one to six weeks, depending on the individual’s needs. It’s important to remember that the appropriateness of an IOP will depend on the individual’s specific needs and circumstances. Therefore, anyone considering an IOP for eating disorder treatment should consult with a healthcare provider or a mental health professional specializing in eating disorders.  

Conditions We Treat 

While we treat all major eating disorders, we provide specialized treatment for the three following conditions:  

Anorexia Nervosa (AN) 

AN is an eating disorder characterized by extreme food restriction and intense fear of gaining weight. It is often accompanied by low self-esteem, excessive exercise, and distorted body image.  

Bulimia Nervosa (BN) 

BN is an eating disorder in which individuals engage in recurrent episodes of binging and purging. Individuals with BN may feel out of control when it comes to food, and they may use purging behaviors such as vomiting or excessive exercise to compensate for overeating.  

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) 

BED is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating without compensatory behaviors like purging. Individuals with BED often feel ashamed and embarrassed about their binging, which can lead to depression, social isolation, and feelings of guilt and disgust. 

What to Expect in Our Eating Disorder Treatment Programs  

Our philosophy of treatment includes the following:  

  • Learning about patterns from childhood can skew your relationship with yourself and with others  
  • Identifying your triggers, which can increase your resilience in the face of future challenges  
  • Discovering that all foods fit—there are no “good” or “bad” foods  
  • Recognizing that being honest is crucial for the process of healing. 

Our treatment includes individual counseling and structured treatment. We focus on repairing clients’ relationship with food and their bodies. Our goals are to:  

  • Stabilize clients’ eating habits and patterns  
  • Teach clients to listen to their body’s cues and honor its needs  
  • Bring clients to a place where they can follow their meal plan outside of the structure of a residential setting   

We provide a safe and compassionate environment for learning, growth, healing, and recovery.
