Virtual IOP

Your connection to recovery

The Emily Program offers intensive outpatient programming (IOP) via virtual treatment. Virtual treatment allows us to deliver eating disorder care to those who prefer to attend programming from home. Through virtual treatment, our clients can connect with their care team and peers over a secure video connection.

As in traditional intensive programming, our multidisciplinary care teams guide clients through evidence-based eating disorder treatment.

Virtual IOP includes:

  • Individual therapy
  • Skills-based group therapy
  • Therapeutic meals
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Yoga/mindfulness therapy
  • Psychiatry and medical services, as needed

The Emily Program’s Virtual IOP is available for children, teens, and adults in Minnesota, Ohio, and Washington.

What to expect

Prior to the start of programming, clients will have an assessment and participate in an orientation. To prepare for the start of programming, clients will receive materials detailing how to connect, what to expect during virtual treatment groups and individual sessions, how to optimize the group experience virtually, how to prepare for meals, and all group curriculum and materials.

Virtual IOP meets for 12 hours per week (3 hours/day, 4 days/week), including one therapeutic meal per day. Group sessions contain 10 or fewer clients and meal sessions include 5 or fewer clients, along with therapy and/or nutrition staff.
