Healthy Futures offers the Phoenix area’s longest running intensive outpatient program for treating those struggling with eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia or any form of disordered eating.  We offer services that include nutrition education, meal planning, group therapy, family education and support, and DBT Skills Training.  Our clients enjoy support from others who understand, and they learn how to decrease the eating disorders’ power in their lives.

All that may sound like a mouthful, but relax.  You too can soon be on your way to overcoming your struggles.  All it takes is three simple steps to get through the eating disorder treatment admission process.

  1. Talk with one of our Intake Specialists who will answer your questions about our programs, fees and insurance coverage and the how-to’s of this process.
  2. Come in for an assessment and complete some paperwork.  The purpose is to gauge which level of care you need, and to develop an initial treatment plan.
  3. Get authorization for our services.  You will need to secure medical clearance from your physician.  Following the link to print the medical clearance form.   And, if entering our IOP, your insurance will be called to get authorization for our services.

Once these three steps are completed, you will receive a start date and be set on the path to a healthier future.  To start the eating disorder treatment admission process, call us at (480) 451-8500.  Healthy Futures is located in Scottsdale near the Loop 101 and convenient from nearly all areas of the Valley.  Our team of caring professionals looks forward to working with you on your road to recovery

What is ARFID and how can it help children who suffer from eating disorders?

Often, the children who suffer from ARFID experience a choking sensation from the smells or the feeling of certain foods in their mouths. Vomiting is also not unusual. The experience of these sensations leads to the child avoiding or restricting certain foods. Malnutrition then becomes an issue with this disorder.
