Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults with Eating Disorders

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Eating Recovery Center empowers patients to take ownership of their recovery and become active participants in their lives. Our Intensive Outpatient program is a flexible eating disorder treatment program that allows patients to work, go to school, or care for children during the day and sleep at home at night.

In IOP, patients are in treatment up to four days per week for up to 9 hours per week. Programming includes nutritional counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, supported meals and more.

Experienced professionals employ a number of therapeutic interventions in IOP, including:

The program also incorporates core recovery principles, values, mindfulness, and connectedness.

The IOP 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 our Residential or Partial Hospitalization programs. IOP can also be leveraged as a direct-admit level of care for adult patients requiring a higher level of care from an outpatient setting — allowing them to remain engaged with their lives.

Our Adult Intensive Outpatient facilities are in Washington, California (in Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area), Chicago, Maryland (offering IOP four nights per week), OhioDallasSan Antonio and Houston.
