Bridging the gap between inpatient and independence…
Completing an inpatient treatment is just the first step on the road to recovery from eating disorders. Our Intensive Outpatient Transitional Program helps patients and families transition from structured treatment facilities to a safe and supportive outpatient setting. Our goal is to successfully return patients to their home, work, school and family lives while continuing their healing process.
As patients develop their independence and self-care abilities, we gradually reduce the intensity of our services while providing continued support. Patients learn to live without their self-destructive behaviors, rebuilding their lives, rediscovering their true selves, and being able to confidently share the person they’ve become with the world.
