Our Eating Disorder Treatment and Recovery Program

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

McCaskill Family Services Eating Disorder Treatment and Recovery Program

Do you or your loved one need additional support working through eating disorder recovery? Our Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program is ideal for those who are medically stable and in need of additional structure and support than an outpatient level of care can provide. IOP provides meal planning, therapy, education, connection, support and guidance, all in a group atmosphere.

What happens during IOP?

Our intensive outpatient session meets 3 days each week for 3 hours per day. With our therapists, dietitians and nursing staff, clients will participate in daily group therapy, supervised meals, and educational sessions and have the option to add on individual sessions as needed with staff. Each client will also meet weekly with our nursing staff to monitor weight and vitals. Loved ones will have the option to attend our weekly Family Q&A sessions to speak directly to program staff.

Is Intensive Outpatient (IOP) the appropriate level of care right now?

Eating disorder treatment varies from weekly outpatient appointments to inpatient hospitalization. The IOP level of care is appropriate when the client is medically stable and cleared by their medical team, has fair motivation to recover, and is somewhat self-sufficient but needs additional structure and support at this phase in their recovery.

What eating disorders do you treat?

Our program treats anorexia nervosa, avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), binge eating disorder and bulimia nervosa.

What if I already have a therapist or dietitian?

Our IOP staff will coordinate with each client’s current treatment team. Coordination of care will begin at intake and proceed throughout treatment.

What happens after IOP treatment concludes?

During IOP MFS staff will remain in contact with clients’ treatment team including physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, dietitians, coaches, schools, as needed to assist in coordination of care at program conclusion. If treatment staff determine a higher level of care may be necessary, they will consult with the client and/or family to determine the best course of action.

How do we begin?

All interested clients will need to be cleared for treatment by their physician and schedule an intake appointment with our staff at least 10 days in advance of their scheduled IOP start date. Intake appointments can be scheduled by contacting our office at 734.416.9098 or office@mccaskillfamilyservices.com.

Next Open IOP Session Begins: Monday, September 26th, 2022

Evaluations for Eating Disorders

Are you concerned that you or your child may be exhibiting signs of an eating disorder, excessive exercise or body image concerns but aren’t sure if treatment is needed?

If you are reading this, you are not alone. Rather than continue to wonder, question, or watch patterns of eating, schedule a consultation appointment with one of our eating disorder specialists to discuss your concerns.

As a parent, you may be worried about addressing this topic with your child or teen in fear of making things worse or pushing them to hide their behaviors. Many parents attend this consultation appointment without their child to openly talk to the therapist in a confidential, supportive setting. Our therapist will listen, ask questions, and provide you with guidance as to the next steps, understanding the complexity of your individual situation and keeping the safety and security of your child’s physical and mental health in mind. If a more thorough evaluation is needed, we will walk you through the steps to helping you or your child get the best possible care.

To schedule a consultation appointment, please contact us at 734-416-9098 or email office@mccaskillfamilyservices.com.
