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.
Internal Medicine Support
Physical health is an important component of lasting eating disorders recovery, and it can be valuable to work with a physician that understands eating disorders and the medical issues that can accompany these illnesses. In addition to providing expert medical stabilization to patients participating in Eating Recovery Center’s higher levels of care, Jennifer McBride, MD, is available for internal medicine support on an outpatient basis. These services are available to both current participants and alumni of Eating Recovery Center’s programs as well as the general public seeking the guidance of a Denver-based internist with extensive training and expertise in the medical implications of eating disorders recovery. Call Eating Recovery Center at 877-825-8584 to schedule an appointment with Dr. McBride.
