Intensive treatment

Programs offered

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provide individualized treatment to those suffering from anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and related disorders.

Programs are currently accepting females and males, ages 9 to adult.

The programs are structured to include group processing, food experientials, nutrition education, therapy education, meal processing, art, and meditation in a cohesive environment.

Our education group addresses co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, substance use, trauma, and self injury.

Specialized therapies include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), life skills, and body image.

Monthly, we host a workshop for our patients’ family and friends to help them understand the illness. This is a one-time requirement.

Staff Excellence – The staff at Blue Horizon has extensive experience and training working with those suffering from eating disorders. The clinical staff has advanced degrees in their field of expertise. The directors have work experience in acute, residential, and outpatient care.
