Treatment for Eating Disorders in Western North Carolina
Intensive outpatient treatment is a step under a partial hospitalization program. This involves attending therapies at a treatment center for about three hours a day. Some people may attend these programs every other day, but schedules can be flexible. A person must be medically stable to participate in this treatment program type. Additional examples of services provided include nutritional counseling, individual therapy, family therapy, or group therapy.
At Tapestry, we are committed to helping our patients succeed in the outside world once their time with us has concluded. Through intensive outpatient treatment, you will continue receiving support on a daily or near-daily basis. As you adjust to life back home, you may encounter old temptations or anxieties that can hinder your progress. Outpatient therapy will give you a chance to discuss those concerns with therapists, support groups, and others who want to help you succeed.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine what treatment program type is best for a person. Fortunately, they don’t have to make the decision alone. An intake counselor at a treatment center can help a person decide the best option to start. Examples of some of the questions and components a counselor will consider include:
- Current weight and diet history
- Family life and social support structure
- History of mental illness, treatment, and any symptoms a person is currently experiencing
- History of when a person’s struggles with food and weight began
- Any other medical history it would be good for a specialist to know about
An intake specialist will consider each of these factors before making a recommendation. It’s important for a person to remember that if they start this treatment program and it doesn’t work well for them, there are other options available.
