Doorways to Sponsor the 2019 IAEDPF Phoenix Conference

Join us April 12, 2019 for a great presentation and networking with your colleagues. SPEAKERS Kimberly Collins, MS, RDN, CDE, CEDRD & Nicole Garber, MD

https://squareup.com/market/iaedpf-phoenix-chapter

This presentation will highlight recent neuroscience findings in eating disorders. There will be a focus on set shifting, learning, habit formation, and reward pathways that underlie the symptoms seen in Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder with a focus on the corresponding functional pathway changes seen in the brain. We will discuss how these neuroscience findings can be translated into treatment modalities for treating eating disorders including nutritional interventions, medications, transmagnetic stimulation, and therapeutic interventions (CBT, DBT, MBT, CRT). There will be an in-depth discussion of the effects of malnutrition on the brain and the interaction between nutrition and mood/emotional regulation and how nutrition can be effectively utilized as a tool in treating these difficulties. The overall goal is for attendees to have an understanding on brain changes in functions and structure that occur in treating disorders and how knowledge of this can drive the appropriate interventions. 8:30-8:50 am Registration/Networking 8:50-9:00 am Announcements/Intros 9:00-10:30am Presentation 10:30-11:00 Questions/Networking Sheraton Crescent Crestview Room 2620 West Dunlap Ave (I-17 & Dunlap) Phoenix, AZ 85021 **Breakfast Included**

Substance Use Disorder IOP For Teens in Phoenix

The Substance Use Disorder IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) at Doorways is a group therapy program for teens ages 13-17 who are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse.  The program will take place at our teen counseling clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.

IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable people in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate school and family life. 

In the Substance Use Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program, you receive services primarily through group therapy. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe and supportive environment.

Doorways has insurance contracts with Aetna, BCBS, Cigna and United Behavioral Healthcare for our IOP services. Please contact your insurance provider for coverage limits.  

Call us at 602-997-2880 or email IOP@Doorwaysarizona.com for more information.  This IOP is set to begin in March of 2019.
