PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
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 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.
DAY TREATMENT PROGRAM
The BALANCE Day Program is a full-time program for adults 18 years and older struggling with eating disorders.
INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM
The BALANCE IOP offers a highly customized, structured evening eating disorder program.
Our Saturday programs offer unique weekend support for both adults and adolescents allowing the continuation of school and work while on the road to recovery.
Our flexible adolescent programming has three treatment options to provide the best possible care.
EMOTIONAL EATING GROUP
Do you often channel your emotions into food or deal with stress by overeating? This weekly Emotional Eating group provides a safe and supportive therapeutic forum for exploring such matters.
MONTHLY CONTEMPLATING RECOVERY FREE SUPPORT GROUP
BALANCE is proud to offer a free Saturday support group that provides an opportunity to those contemplating some form of treatment for concerns related to eating, food and body image.
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.
MULTI-FAMILY GROUP THERAPY
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.
EATING DISORDER RELAPSE PREVENTION GROUP
This mixed gender therapy group offers consistent weekly support for clients in early recovery who are either stepping down from a higher level of care or would benefit from complementary care in addition to their outpatient team.
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.
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.
INDIVIDUAL NUTRITION COUNSELING
