Eating Disorder IOP Program

Are there any requirements for me to attend the IOP program?

Yes. We will have you answer some questions over the phone and determine if you are a good fit for the program. Then we’ll ask you to obtain a medical evaluation and some laboratory work from your primary physician.

How do I know if it’s the right program for me?

This program is designed to treat those who are wanting additional support in their overall recovery program. Sometimes these are clients stepping down from higher levels of care, and sometimes these are clients who are seeking to augment their current outpatient treatment without upsetting their work, family, or school settings. These are clients who are medically stable (as determined by your treatment team and laboratory work), but still struggling with behaviors and the recovery process. If you are in need of medical treatment, we will refer you to a higher level of care.

Our goal is to provide treatment options for those who can’t afford or are unable to attend inpatient programs due to their work, school, and family obligations.

What are the age groups that the IOP program treats?

In our adult group, we serve women and men 18 years and older. In the teen group we serve males and females ages 13-17.

What is the typical length of the IOP treatment/program?

Our basic intensive outpatient program is 10 weeks long. The adult program meets from 4:30-7:30 pm and the teen program meets from 3:30-6:30 pm. Both programs are 3 days a week: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Some clients may stay longer than 10 weeks depending on their needs for treatment and determined by the treatment planning phase after the initial evaluation.

How often do I meet with the Dietitian & Therapist?

Every client will see their dietitian and therapist once a week. Every treatment plan is individualized and clients can choose to meet with their dietitian and therapist more often if needed as identified by their treatment team.

What is the dietary program like? Do you accommodate for vegetarian diets or food allergies/intolerances?

The dietary team will work individually with each client to design a program that fits their lifestyle and prioritizes recovery. We understand that food is a central issue for every client, and from the first day they will be planning with the dietitian to create. Meals will be prepared by each person and planned with their dietitian.

Utensils, napkins, basic kitchen appliances (microwave and fridge) and seasonings will all be available for each person’s use.

We accommodate food allergies documented by doctors and vegetarians, however, we don’t accommodate vegan or raw food diets.

How are family members or loved ones involved in my treatment plan?

We offer a weekly multi-family group on Thursdays that is designed to address issues related to the eating disorder dynamics in the family and in clients’ significant relationships. Our goal is to help every person in the client’s support system find ways to support the client’s recovery and build healthy relationship skills. Individual family and/or couple sessions are also available when needed and are billed separately.
