Virtual IOP Programs led by highly trained eating disorder specialists.
Virtual Intensive Outpatient Programs
While traditional in-person treatment approaches remain powerful tools for recovery, growing evidence suggests that virtually delivered care is both convenient and impactful. Results from a 2021 study from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Center for Eating Disorders indicate that “patients experience significant improvements in ED symptoms during virtual treatment delivery.” A 2020 statistical review indicated that clients participating in virtual intensive outpatient programming for the treatment of eating disorders “showed significant and clinically meaningful improvements in all outcomes measured, including self-reported eating disorder symptoms, depression, self-esteem, quality of life, and overall satisfaction. VIOP appears feasible, acceptable, and evidence clinically meaningful changes in eating and mood disorder symptoms.”
Prosperity’s innovative, gender-inclusive programs seek to meet clients quite literally wherever they are, both in the recovery process and across the commonwealth. Our programs offer comprehensive, engaging care to address the complex challenges of recovery. Clients will gain tools to manage distress, challenge the beliefs that support their eating disorder, and enjoy the support of a caring community of professionals and peers. Clients are linked with a dedicated individual treatment team, consisting of both nutrition and therapy providers, who meet with you individually each week to monitor progress and collaborate with each client on their unique recovery path.
- Nutrition sessions focus on building a long-lasting, positive relationship with food. Prosperity subscribes to the Health At Every Size® (HAES®) approach and an All Foods Fit model.
- Group therapy sessions consist of evidence-based approaches and are hosted in a safe, peaceful, and encouraging environment. Our goal is to empower individuals to heal, thrive, and live their lives victoriously.
