Fairwinds Treatment Center Tampa FL

Intensive Outpatient Program for Eating Disorders Near Tarpon Springs, FL

Eating orders are complex mental health conditions that require various levels of highly specialized care. In addition to inpatient and day/night recovery programs, Fairwinds Treatment Center offers an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which may be a good option for certain patients who are transitioning out of residential care or partial hospitalization.

The ideal candidate for our IOP has returned to work or school and is functioning well but would like more support and structure than that typically available through a traditional outpatient program. Most participants in our intensive outpatient program visit our recovery center near Tarpon Springs, Florida, three days per week for three to five hours at a time.

Setting the Stage for Your Successful Recovery

For more than three decades, Fairwinds Treatment Center has been developing individualized, research-based treatment plans for patients with anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating disorder. After a thorough assessment of your unique needs and goals, we may recommend:

  • Individual psychotherapy – to help you process and work on parts of your life other than your eating disorder, such as communication and relationships
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) – to help you overcome your self-defeating thought patterns about food, eating, and body image
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy – to help you regulate your emotions, develop effective interpersonal skills, and improve your distress tolerance and mindfulness
  • Radically open dialectical therapy – to help you manage your difficult emotions and decrease your harmful behaviors
  • Family therapy – to explore how your eating disorder affects those around you and how they can support you in your recovery
  • Nutrition counseling – to help you develop a meal plan to promote weight restoration, weight maintenance, or weight loss
  • Art therapy – to promote self-understanding and help you express your difficult-to-verbalize feelings
  • Fitness and wellness groups – to help you learn to enjoy the health benefits—and avoid the negative consequences—of exercise
