The BALANCE Eating Disorder Saturday Program is a highly customized and structured 6-week program  for both adults and adolescents suffering from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and disordered eating. 

This unique weekend support can function as stand-alone programs or can be added to our Day Treatment Program or Intensive Outpatient Program for added support.  This convenient Saturday option allows for the continuation of work and/or school commitments.

Our Admissions team would be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding our Saturday Program. Click below to contact us today or learn more about our treatment philosophy here. 

OUR 6-WEEK SATURDAY PROGRAM AT BALANCE WAS DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE THREE LEVELS OF SUPPORT: 

1. Saturday Program Extension: As an add-on to our current weeknight or weekday program.
2. Saturday Program Step Down: Clients who have finished our Weeknight Program can step down to our Saturday Program for further support.  
3. Saturday Program Step Up: For clients who need group support to strengthen their outpatient individual sessions.

 

Our Saturday Program includes the following components:

  • A program schedule that meets on Saturdays from 8:30 am - 1:30 pm with a small group setting of only 8 clients, providing a low client-to-clinician ratio

  • An initial consultation and evaluation with individual treatment planning

  • Behavioral, cognitive and psychodynamic group therapy with a focus on challenges to recovery, skills building for mood and impulse management, and body image work

  • Experiential group therapies (art therapy)

  • Nutrition Groups that focus on neutralizing and legalizing food, debunking food myths, the media's influence on body image, eating habits and self-confidence, and what "healthy" eating really means. 

  • Mealtime support and processing

  • Weekly nutrition therapy session available (separate fee) 

  • Exposure therapy (restaurant meals, challenge foods)

  • Multi-family group therapy and education

  • Co-treatment model providing ongoing communication and collaboration during treatment with referring team members

  • Alumni support and services upon discharge
