Intensive Outpatient Program

Goryeb Children’s Hospital’s Eating Disorders Program has an intensive outpatient after-school program meets eight hours per week and includes:

  • Medical monitoring
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Group psychotherapy
  • Multifamily group therapy
  • Multifamily meals

Family-Based Treatment in Our Intensive Outpatient Program

There are three phases of care for patients in our outpatient program:

  • Weight restoration and interruption of eating disordered behaviors – Parents choose the portion sizes and monitor all of the meals and snacks provided to their child.

  • Returning the control – Control over eating is gradually given back to the child.

  • Establishing healthy adolescent identity – The child has re-established developmentally-appropriate control over her or her food and normal adolescent development is encouraged.

Parents remain essential during outpatient treatment and are required to:

  • Join weekly multifamily meals and multifamily groups
  • Attend family therapy sessions and/or nutrition sessions as advised by the treatment team
