Build your life beyond treatment with Saturdays at BALANCE

When navigating life with an eating disorder, the weekends can be challenging.

Without the structure of a typical work or school day, stepping down from treatment, or even just taking on the weekend without a support network can be scary.

It’s possible you need additional support. Our Saturday program could be the solution. Seeking care at BALANCE​​ means finding freedom and relief on the other side of your eating disorder. Why?


Utilize your Saturday mornings to access treatment in the heart of Manhattan.

When is it Time to Consider Saturday Treatment?

Our Saturday program is designed to offer the support you need wherever you are in your journey to recovery and can serve as:

  • A step down from an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) as you transition into life after treatment
  • An add-on to your existing Partial Hospital Program (PHP) or IOP schedule to provide more structured support
  • A stand-alone option to provide a recovery community and establish the foundation for lasting change

“BALANCE did not only help me better myself mentally, physically, and emotionally, but I can also confidently say that this saved my life.”

Set Yourself Up to Thrive With BALANCE

Expand and enrich your recovery journey with BALANCE’s Saturday program. Our unique 6-week Saturday Program was developed to provide three distinct levels of support, as an add-on to our other programs, as a step-down from higher levels of care, and as a step-up to help sustain recovery.

The convenient weekend schedule allows you to continue treatment and day-to-day commitments while building the confidence and purpose you need to pursue a peaceful relationship with food and your body.

Maintain your healing momentum while taking advantage of all New York City offers.

Restoring BALANCE:
Our Approach

Gain a fresh perspective on life with a holistic and diverse treatment schedule supervised by licensed master’s level clinicians.

While in the program, your recovery team will customize your treatment plan to meet your individual needs and will support you in overcoming triggers.

This immersive program supports you in purposely shifting from painful, limiting thoughts and behaviors toward a life free of an eating disorder.

BALANCE's Saturday program is a perfect blend of high-quality treatment and practical experiences designed to seamlessly integrate recovery into your life.

Optimize Your Healing

Many BALANCE clients choose to take advantage of our efficacious outpatient treatment options. Each of our BALANCE programs can be utilized as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a holistic and integrative treatment plan.

To best support lasting recovery, we recommend clients step down through our levels of care in sequential steps. At BALANCE, clients can move from our PHP into our IOP program and then, as behaviors become less and less frequent, to the Saturday program.

After completing these more intensive programmatic steps, our clients can then continue with individual services, providing a seamless continuum of care.

Research tells us the best outcomes are achieved by moving through our sequential Continuum of Care.
