Eating Recovery at Home: Trusted Treatment That Comes to You

For anyone who needs additional outpatient support, a more flexible and convenient treatment option, is reluctant to receive treatment in person or is ready to step down from PHP treatment, Eating Recovery Center offers comprehensive Virtual Intensive Outpatient Programs (Virtual IOP) in more than 21 states.

Our Virtual IOP offers the same trusted level of care available at our in-person centers of excellence. With low therapist-to-patient ratios, our virtual programs provide clinically rigorous and evidence-based practices to deliver virtual treatment designed to facilitate recovery from the comfort of home.

Our licensed, multidisciplinary team members use a proven, evidence-based curriculum to treat eating disorders in children, teens and adults. They also have extensive training in telebehavioral health ethics and service delivery to provide effective, ethical treatment and group collaboration in a virtual setting.

Our Virtual Treatment: As Effective as Face-to-Face

As with in-person treatment, our Virtual IOP patients work with specialized experts and renowned clinicians in the field of eating disorders, seeing the same treatment team throughout their program. We know our treatment works—and we’ve published peer-reviewed research that proves it.

Virtual Care Can Be the Path for Patients Who:

  • Have limited access to treatment, time constraints or other obstacles that may prevent them from getting care
  • Are students who cannot put their life on hold to begin treatment
  • Do not have access to recommended/specialized care (e.g., would benefit from more appointments; are unable to travel to/from treatment facility; do not have access to eating disorder specialists or a recovery-based community)
  • Would appreciate and benefit from more structure and support to progress with individualized treatment goals (e.g., interrupt eating disorder behaviors and/or weight restore)
  • Struggle to progress in outpatient treatment or accept a recommendation for a higher level of care
  • Struggle to function in daily life due to concerns related to eating, weight or body image
  • Feel isolated and/or are without supportive others who understand the complex nature of eating disorders
