Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program for Eating Disorders

As the name suggests, The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is more concentrated than the standard Outpatient Program. It can be a transition program for inpatient or partial hospitalization and may be convenient for patients who require intensive treatment. Individuals who are medically stable who have been unresponsive to outpatient care may be successfully treated in our specialized intensive outpatient program without resorting to more costly hospitalization.

Program Overview

  • The IOP consists of 6 to 10 treatment hours per week.
  • Ideally suited for patients who need to recover from their formal eating disorder and continue to maintain their current lifestyle such as their academic and/or occupational functioning.
  • Our program is designed for patients who require an intensive multidisciplinary approach for the treatment of their eating disorder.
