Administered in a flexible setting, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) involves three hours of intensive outpatient programming three days per week and allows patients to work, go to school or care for children during the day and sleep at home at night. The IOP can serve as a step-down level of care, helping to foster a positive transition into activities of daily living for adults upon discharging from residential and partial hospitalization programs. IOP can also be leveraged as a direct-admit level of care for patients requiring a higher level of care in an outpatient setting that allows them to remain engaged with their lives

The Moore Center’s adult IOP empowers patients to take ownership of their recovery and become active participants in their lives. The program incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (CBT), as well as the core recovery principles of values, mindsight, and connectedness. The program meets three evenings a week and includes nutrition education, supported meals and dietary monitoring, and multi-family education to support lasting eating disorders recovery.

  • Individual Therapy
