Join us for the Wise Body Warrior Eating Disorder Intensive, a five day intensive outpatient treatment for emotional eating, binge eating disorder, and stable bulimia nervosa recovery. The 5-day treatment for eating disorders is for individuals ages 16+ who have identified traits and symptoms of eating disorders. This 40 hour program intensive treatment will focus on dialectic behavior therapy skills to utilize and adjust behaviors, relationship with food, explore body image and food myths, along with coping skills and examination of one’s authentic self.

Wise Body Warrior: Eating Disorder Intensive Screening and Assessments

Pre-screening and assessment is required for admittance. Individual assessment will be scheduled and can take place in person or via telecommunication. These appointments need to be completed before the start of program. We may require a letter from your physician documenting medical stability for an intensive outpatient level of care. We will not provide medical care or evaluation through our treatment center, however, we can assist in making referrals to a local physician, urgent care and/or psychiatrist for additional treatment if needed. If you are transitioning from a treatment center, please let us know at the beginning of the assessment process, as we will require a release of information.

A nutritional assessment will take place prior to the beginning of programming via teleconference. If you are currently working with a dietitian or nutritionist, and have a meal plan, the Wise Body Warrior dietitian will discuss and review this with you. For those who currently do not have a meal plan, the Wise Body Warrior dietician will create a plan tailored to your individual needs. A nutrition session check in during the intensive week may apply.

See sample schedule below.

Payment: $2800 for the week. A $500 Deposit will be required to reserve your spot. Complete payment will be due by the Friday BEFORE the Wise Body Warrior Intensive Begins. Cash, Check or Credit Card are accepted. If a credit card is used a 3.5% service charge will be added to the payment.
