OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES
BALANCE eating disorder treatment center is an oasis in the heart of New York City. Upon entering the center, clients and their families will immediately find themselves immersed in a warm, welcoming and tranquil space. Our center is intentionally designed to aid in the healing process by offering a sanctuary that soothes the senses, reduces stress and enhances the treatment experience.
We treat the spectrum of eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating and other disordered eating behaviors and body image issues.
BALANCE offers clients four distinct levels of care to meet their specific treatment needs including a day program, intensive outpatient program, step-down groups and individual nutrition services.
OUR TREATMENT PROGRAMS
DAY TREATMENT PROGRAM
The BALANCE Day Program is a full-time program (Monday thru Friday) for women and LGBTQAI 18 years and older suffering from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and disordered eating.
INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM
The BALANCE Intensive Outpatient Program offers a highly customized, structured evening program that meets 3 times a week, with a convenient Saturday option. This program allows continuation of work and school commitments while getting support.
Our Saturday programs offer unique weekend support for both adults (morning session) and adolescents (afternoon session). Both groups can function as stand-alone programs or can be added to any of our weekday programs for added support.
We offer flexible treatment options for girls and LGBTQAI youth ages 12 - 17 years. Our adolescent programming has three treatment options to provide the best possible care.
A recent Harvard University study indicates that 25% of people with eating disorders are male. BALANCE has responded to their needs with the creation of a group dedicated exclusively to the treatment of men with eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder as well as disordered eating.
THERAPY GROUP FOR PREGNANT WOMEN
This group is being offered for women going through all stages of pregnancy. The group will center on exploring one’s relationship with food and body image during this time of profound transition in a woman’s life.
BALANCE created an Outpatient Group to address the need for ongoing support, which has been shown to be effective for relapse prevention and sustained eating disorder recovery.
BODY IMAGE GROUP
The objectives of the group include gaining insight into the relationship with one's body and how eating disorder behaviors and urges are often a result of the way in which emotions manifest in one's physical body. This group is not limited to a specific type of eating disorder.
EMOTIONAL EATING GROUP
Do you often channel your emotions into food or deal with stress by overeating? This group provides a safe and supportive therapeutic forum for exploring such matters.
Family and friends play an important role in recovery and treatment outcomes. Therefore, we provide multi-family group therapy to help family members better understand the disorder and their loved one.
NUTRITIONAL & MEAL SUPPORT
Our Meal Support Group at BALANCE was developed for clients to provide additional support through the eating disorder recovery process, serve as an introduction to our services or as a step down from programs.
INDIVIDUAL NUTRITION COUNSELING
At BALANCE eating disorder treatment center, we work with you to customize a program specific to your needs. Whether you are challenged with an eating disorder or looking for nutrition counseling, we can help you.
