Eating Disorders IOP

The Adolescent Eating Disorders IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) at Doorways is for males and females ages 13-18. It is 3 days per week.  Open enrollment, join any time. 

We understand the devastating toll that Eating Disorders can take on a person and on their family. We incorporate Group therapy, individual sessions, and family involvement to provide the best chances for moving on to the fullness of life. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe and supportive environment. We have provided this opportunity for support and healing since 2012.

The ED IOP consists of a variety of treatments that are all evidence-based, research-informed, and specific to adolescents’ culture and development. We speak Teenager!
