Outpatient Services

“It’s incredible to watch a whole person emerge from behind the shadow of an eating disorder. Creativity, intelligence and a spark of life really come out of a person as they progress through the recovery process.”

-Karen Trevithick, PsyD, Clinical Director of Outpatient Services

Outpatient programming focuses on teaching and practicing the skills necessary for patients to remain healthy and protect their recovery after leaving treatment. Patients can admit directly into Outpatient care, or step down to one of the programs from a higher level of care.

Eating Recovery Center’s Outpatient programs and services are located in the heart of Denver’s Lowry neighborhood at:

Adult Outpatient Services

7900 E. 1st Avenue, Suite 200
Denver, CO 80230

Outpatient Services include:

Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (EIOP)

Administered in a flexible setting, the Evening Intensive Outpatient Program (EIOP) involves four hours of intensive outpatient programming three evenings per week and allows patients to work, go to school or care for children during the day and sleep at home at night. EIOP can be a meaningful next step in a patient’s treatment continuum or a valuable adjunct to individual therapy.

Eating Recovery Center’s EIOP empowers patients to take ownership of their recovery and become active participants in their lives. The EIOP incorporates Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT), as well as the core recovery principles of values, mindsight, and connectedness. The 8+ week program meets three evenings a week and includes nutrition education, supported meals and dietary monitoring, and multi-family education to support lasting eating disorders recovery.

EIOP can serve as a step-down level of care, helping to foster a positive transition into activities of daily living for adults upon discharging from residential and partial hospitalization programs. EIOP can also be leveraged as a direct-admit level of care for patients requiring a higher level of care in an outpatient setting that allows them to remain engaged with their lives.
