Living Hope EDTC offers an IOP to male and female adult patients and male and female adolescent patients on Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM until 1 PM or from 3 PM until 6:30 PM. IOP includes meal support for one snack and one meal for each day attended, as well as various groups including group therapy groups, art therapy groups, and dietitian groups. Prior to admission to IOP an intake assessment is completed with Dr. Scears. While patients are admitted to the IOP they will see a dietitian weekly for an individual session, and will see a therapist 1-2 times weekly for individual therapy and/or family therapy. Patients will also see Dr. Scears weekly while in IOP. Patients will also have monthly family group sessions typically on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10 AM until 1:30 PM. All group members are strongly encouraged to bring their families to these groups.
Before admission to the Intensive Outpatient Program for the treatment of eating disorders, patients will have an assessment completed by Dr. Scears. This assessment will include comprehensive health assessment. This includes a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation, with emphasis on history of the eating disorder. Additionally, detailed family history, social circumstances, menstrual cycle history.
