Our Eating Disorders Intensive Outpatient Program for teens is one of the most unique IOPs available and is known for its diversity and inclusiveness, as well as for its thoroughness and its ability to help not only the individual young person, but also the entire family system.
Teens struggling with Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, or any other form of eating disorder can learn healthy ways to process seemingly overpowering emotions, and also how to integrate these skills into their everyday lives with family and friends.
Our teen IOP is not solely for young people struggling with food, weight and body issues, though; the program has shown to be extremely beneficial for young people struggling with anxiety and/or depression.
Our teen IOP welcomes all genders and is for people from 12 – 18 years of age.
We are proud of our family component that coincides with our teen IOP. We have found that younger patients experience higher levels of long-term success when family members are learning and growing along with them. Therefore, our family component is a required part of our teen IOP.
