Intensive Outpatient Programs & Day Treatment for Adolescents and Adults

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) & Day Treatment are a group-based, more intensive form of treatment available for individuals who are experiencing moderate to severe symptoms and interference in life, not experiencing a reduction of symptoms with less intensive treatment and/or who are transitioning from a higher level of care such as inpatient or residential treatment. While in the IOP, participants continue to work individually with a therapist, dietitian (for clients with eating disorders) and a medical provider either at Water’s Edge CHC or outside of the facility.

Although many factors allow Water’s Edge CHC treatment to stand out from the rest, one unique factor about our IOPs is that we have a much higher staff to client ratio than many other programs. For the majority of our programs we have a 1 staff to 2 or 3 clients’ ratio. This allows for great attention to each member’s individual care and needs throughout the program. We also highly value and prioritize collaboration (when given appropriate written permission) with all outside providers including therapists, dietitians, physicians, and school counselors.

Additionally individuals with eating disorders who also experience moderate to severe depression/anxiety and who are in need of an all-day program to make or maintain progress, there is an option to participate in both an Eating Disorder program as well as a Depression/Anxiety/Trauma program as a means of addressing both issues.

Finally, another unique aspect to our IOP/Day Treatment approach is that individuals who are not able to make a commitment to four days per week, may be approved to participate three days per week. This often allows individuals to be more engaged in normal daily activities such as work or family care while simultaneously getting the treatment they need.
