Child & Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Eating Disorder Treatment

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a flexible eating disorder treatment program that allows patients to go to school during the day and sleep at home at night, practicing recovery skills in a real-world context. The IOP can serve as a step-down level of care, helping to foster a positive transition into activities of daily living for young patients upon discharging from higher levels of care. IOP 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

Intensive Outpatient eating disorder programming empowers patients to take ownership of their recovery and become active participants in their lives. Programming incorporates Family-Centered Treatment, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT) as well as core recovery principles of values, mindsight, and connectedness. Intensive Outpatient programs meet up to three days per week and up to 9 hours per week. Programming includes nutritional counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, supported meals and more.
