Patients with eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, orthorexia, binge eating disorder and others require specially trained clinicians who understand their unique needs and challenges. That’s why we offer the Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery intensive outpatient program (IOP) for both men and women struggling with eating disorders. The program is facilitated by an experienced Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietician.
Eating Disorder IOP
For graduates of the Remuda Ranch at The Meadows program in Wickenburg, Arizona, the Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP is an extension of the inpatient program in a less structured setting.
Since not everyone needs inpatient or residential treatment, we also offer a track designed for individuals new to eating disorder treatment. It is designed to help those who are just beginning their recovery and those for whom an inpatient or residential treatment program is not determined to be clinically appropriate.
Individuals who come to the Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP must undergo a screening process. Every individual’s current issues and circumstances are taken into consideration to ensure they are clinically appropriate before they are admitted into the IOP program. The Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP is designed to foster the development of the individual while focusing on the previously identified gap in treatment from in-patient to self-sufficient living. Treatment is structured over an extended period offering a flexible schedule to accommodate work and school whenever possible.
The patients are allowed to be human with struggles being brought back to the group to be processed and shared with each other. Peer support is used to truly engage and teach those recovering from eating disorders how to reach out to one another, especially in times of crisis.
Accountability And Relapse Prevention
The Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP focuses on continuing to build the skills around relapse prevention, culinary training and nutrition, while building and capitalizing on a safe environment for accountability.
The program entails group therapy four days per week, three hours per day, for eight weeks. In addition, therapy may consist of a combination of therapeutic modalities, such as:
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Nutrition Education
- Relapse Prevention
- Meal Support and Processing
Neurofeedback, using the Brain Paint technology and led by our Master’s level and licensed trauma therapist, is offered in our on-site Brain Spa which includes a dedicated meditation room with recliners, soft lighting, and music. The Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP group process also includes:
- Trauma Sensitive Yoga
- Art therapy
- Family participation
Additionally, individual counseling sessions are available as needed. Patients also have the opportunity to have a job (if it doesn’t interfere with treatment), and participate in healthy, recovery-based activities.
Continuing Care For The Whole Family
Family is an important part of every addict’s recovery and the Remuda Ranch Eating Recovery IOP recognizes the need for family involvement at every stage. A family day is scheduled every 4 weeks with a focus on continued healthy communication and individual appointments can be scheduled with the patient’s primary therapist in person, by phone, or via Skype each week to continue the patient’s integration back into the family.
Transitional living for patients is available through preferred affiliations with top-quality properties, and is offered to local patients, as well as those from out of state. These transitional living affiliates provide transportation, security, strong programming, fellowship, and numerous recreational activities designed to make the entire process seamless, comfortable, and fun.
