The mission of Behavioral Nutrition’s Adult & Adolescent IOP Eating Disorder Program is to support adults and adolescents, seeking freedom from the addiction-like behaviors that trigger binge-eating, night eating and compulsive-overeating. Our unique program provides a specialized approach to this group of eating disorders, which we treat clinically and behaviorally differently from other forms of eating disorders. This IOP includes focusing on promoting significant behavioral, nutritional and psychological changes to reduce symptoms and improve overall quality of life, using group work and individual therapy.
