Virtual Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Renfrew’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a treatment option designed for those who need more support than standard outpatient therapies offer. As with all of our programs, IOP creates a therapeutic community, where relationships are developed based on mutual sharing and support. It is held three times per week and is ideal for individuals who need greater support than traditional outpatient therapy.
Like all of our programs, Day Treatment follows The Renfrew Center’s Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders®, designed to build emotional tolerance and resilience in the face of distress and difficult experiences.
What Does Virtual IOP Include?
- 1 supported meal per day
- Psychiatric services as needed
- Nutrition consultation
- Group therapy
Is Virtual Treatment Right for Me?
Virtual programs mirror our in-person, evidence-based programming and are available in 30 states throughout the country. To get started, all you need is a reliable internet connection and a tablet, desktop or laptop computer with a camera, microphone and speakers.
To learn more, please call 1-800-RENFREW.
Our research shows no significant difference between in treatment outcomes between patients who receive virtual and those who receive in-person treatment—all show the same improvement in:
- Eating disorder symptoms
- Experiential avoidance
- Relational connection with the treatment team
Renfrew saved my life. I attended the PHP/IOP virtual program and before I started, I was scared to death to face my eating disorder head on. Being 40 years old, I came into the program with apprehension that anything would change, but I was beyond amazed at how the program ran.
After meeting my team, we set up goals and a plan of treatment, which I was included in every step of the way, and this made me feel empowered and in control of my life for the first time in years. I felt like my team truly cared about my recovery and genuinely wanted me to succeed.
I know recovery will be a lifetime journey, but I feel like I finally have my life back, and I just thank everyone at Renfrew for pushing me to be who I never thought I could be.
