Eating Disorder Care Treatment

Healthy Futures offers outpatient eating disorder treatment, as well as an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for anyone struggling with Anorexia, Bulimia or any form of “disordered eating.”


Healthy Futures’ IOP – the longest running eating disorder IOP in the Phoenix area – includes nutrition education, meal planning, group therapy, family education and support, and DBT Skills Training. Nutrition, Individual and Family therapies are also available.


The program is for both males and females from adolescents to adults with Anorexia, Bulimia and/or compulsive overeating.


Our clients learn correct, non-diet based nutrition information, and new life skills and coping skills to use instead of relying on the eating disorder. Most important, clients enjoy support from others who understand and they learn how to decrease the eating disorder’s power in their lives.


Healthy Futures is a practice specializing in eating disorders, non-diet weight management, and general counseling.  All of our staff are Masters Level professionals or higher, and all have had experience helping others in eating disorder and obesity programs. We have a dietitian, psychologist, social worker, counselor, and exercise specialist to help. We look forward to helping you have a healthy future!
