WHAT IS INDIVIDUALIZED INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAMMING(IOP)?
When weekly therapy sessions aren't enough support for symptoms of an eating disorder or disordered eating, intensive outpatient programming may be another option to explore with your team. Programming can be individualized to provide you with the most effective evidence-based practices for your needs. Options in your treatment program may include individual therapy sessions, individual nutrition sessions, food exposure and meal support, mindful movement, group skills classes, and more.
If it is determined by your team that a higher level of support would be beneficial, programming can be offered over the course of several weeks in a weekly structured way to provide maximum exposure to treatment interventions, skill development, and symptom amelioration.
