Outpatient Program (IOP)
The Victorian Outpatient Program can be a good option for the woman who has completed higher levels of treatment.
Our outpatient program is designed for the woman who has completed higher levels of ED treatment successfully and has a stable home environment and support system in place that will allow her to live at home and continue her recovery during the day (or at night).
Once a woman has learned the tools of recovery and if she has a stable home environment and support system in place that will allow her to live at home and continue her recovery with our staff of treatment professionals during the day (or at night).
Most women enter the intensive outpatient program (IOP) after completing the more structured residential treatment program at The Victorian.
Some women live at The Patrice House "Sober Living Environment" so they have structure and monitoring in their residential setting in addition to the treatment they receive in the IOP Program.
Occasionally women enter the IOP program directly to confront a problematic pattern of eating (or drug abuse). A woman may be familiar with recovery and have received treatment and is now struggling with relapse or thoughts of relaps.
IOP Program Philosophy
The women who are staff in the IOP Program work closely with the individual to address all of the issues and areas of the woman's life that may have become affected by eating disorder behaviors.
The Victorian of Newport Beach will work to develop a comprehensive and ongoing treatment plan that evolves over the course of the outpatient treatment program. These treatment plans will be developed not only to address substance abuse and eating disorder issues, but all areas of a woman's life.
The Intensive Outpatient Program consists of a close-knit group of people who meet with each other daily (during the day or evenings) and participate in the educational and therapeutic components of our ED treatment program.
Some components of the IOP program include:
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Assessment, Treatment and Aftercare Planning
- Individual Meetings with Registered Dietitian
- Individual Meal Plan
The Goal of the IOP Program
The goal of the IOP Program (and all Victorian programs) is to restore the woman to a healthier, happier and more productive life. Of paramount importance is that the woman is free from dependence on substance abuse and eating disorder behaviors.
Our goals are based on the belief that successful recovery encompasses
- improvement in self-esteem
- improvement in interpersonal relationship
- positive family interaction
- vocational productivity
- establishment and attainment of realistic life goals
- healthy life style adjustments
