Day Treatment

DAY TREATMENT, which includes partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP), allows patients to have increased independence not experienced at the residential level, including exposure to community and experiences that support them as they work toward freedom from the eating disorder.

LED BY EXPERTS in the treatment of eating disorders, our intensive outpatient programs utilize a comprehensive treatment approach to provide the tools and skills needed to live a life free from food and weight preoccupation. As with all programs at Oliver-Pyatt Centers, you can expect an environment of care and trust that respects the integrity of the individual.

OUR EVENING IOP is available to women living in the South Florida community, who will attend work or school during the day. Patients will continue to work with their outpatient treatment professionals and we will work closely and collaboratively with them. If a patient does not have a complete team established at the time of admission, we can provide referrals.
