Psychiatry and Psychological Services: Intensive Outpatient Program

The intensive outpatient program at Children's is less intensive than hospitalization or day treatment, and is more appropriate for youth who may need more than weekly treatment. Intensive outpatient services are provided on the Legacy campus.  The program offers a unique group therapy approach for patients and families struggling with eating disorders.

The goals of the intensive outpatient program is to provide patients and families with knowledge, resources and support to assist them with successful functioning in everyday life. Patients and families will participate in a four hour program, two days a week. Each unique program consists of individual, family, and group therapy, medication management and additional support services, including art and music therapy. Nutritional consultation and therapeutic dinner are a part of every patient's treatment plan in the eating disorders intensive outpatient program.
