The intensive outpatient program (IOP)
is designed to help people who are struggling with bulimia balance treatment and their lives in the outside world. This level of care requires less of a time commitment than PHP. Participants can live in their own homes or in a supportive living home.
They receive the support and therapeutic expertise of their treatment team while they can also tend to their outside responsibilities. IOP can be especially effective in treating bulimia for people with a less severe case or who have successfully completed previous treatment.
Bulimia nervosa should not be taken lightly. People who struggle with this eating disorder may experience adverse mental and physical health consequences. They may face heart problems, dehydration, ulcers, social issues, and more. It is important to seek help for bulimia to achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle.
If you or your loved one is struggling with bulimia, there's no better place for your treatment in Burlington, Vermont, than the Kahm Center for Eating Disorders. We use metabolic testing and body composition analysis as part of our bulimia treatment, along with traditional methods like meal plans, therapy, and meeting with dietitians.
