Outpatient Eating Disorder Therapy

We treat a variety of concerns in our outpatient clinic, even if you or your loved one doesn’t have an eating disorder history, they can get outstanding outpatient care in our clinic.  Outpatient therapy is designed for adolescent and adult men and women who need support and guidance but can manage eating disorder behaviors and thoughts in a well-supported home environment. The range of clients varies from patients just beginning the recovery process to patients well into the journey of recovery. Clients who need to restore weight or who are experiencing physiological distress should consider a more structured level of care.

Outpatient eating disorder treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED) at Center for Change is available for clients who are medically stable, motivated, and require little structure to maintain weight. Outpatient therapy is designed to assist clients with their emotional concerns as well as offering guidance with eating disorder behaviors. Clients often find it helpful to their recovery to attend one or more outpatient groups offered at the Center during the week and to meet with an outpatient dietitian.
