PHP/IOP as Early Intervention

Treatment is more effective and tends to be less disruptive to an individual’s life when delivered early after symptoms have been detected. Accessing PHP/IOP as early intervention for eating disorders can mean less time spent in treatment, a reduced likelihood of relapse, and fewer physical and mental health risks.

Waiting until eating disorder symptoms worsen before getting help is common but not advised. Clients who seek early intervention are more likely to be receptive to their care team and often get more out of their time in treatment. In fact, early intervention makes it possible for some clients to avoid needing an in person treatment program altogether.

PHP/IOP as Relapse Prevention

Alsana offers Two-Week Intensives at PHP/IOP levels of care for individuals in need of relapse prevention support. Recovery maintenance takes vigilance, persistence and support. Alsana Santa Barbara wants you to know that no matter how long it’s been since leaving treatment, not only is it ok to ask for help when you’re struggling, it’s encouraged. 

PHP/IOP relapse prevention programming is available virtually and in person. If you or someone you know needs help, contact us today.

In Their Own Words

Let Alsana help you write your own story of hope and healing. Alsana Santa Barbara would like to be your eating recovery community.

  • The staff at Alsana proved to be extremely talented in the art and the skill of not colluding with my eating disorder while...

    also not treating me as if  I was an eating disorder. They treated me like the real, whole person that I had lost sight of. They have an ability to hold nuance gently and they aren’t afraid to wade into the hardest waters, which is so much more helpful than receiving treatment that is guided by a rigid manual. There is an unbelievable amount of safety at Alsana because of this and my gratitude is crazy high!

  • As I began to apply the knowledge I gained from Alsana into my daily life, I found that my anxiety, guilt, shame ...

    and self-criticism steadily faded like a candle flickering on its last legs. I found authentic joy in things I used to reprimand myself for doing. I took, and continue to take pride in the progress I made and continue to make. Most importantly, I am now capable of self-acceptance and self-love whether I succeed, fail or anything in between.

  • Before coming to Alsana, I had never had a treatment experience in which the “how” and “why” of the eating ...

    disorder were addressed. This has proven to be essential in my treatment at Alsana and also in my daily life as a member of society. Alsana providers led me through so much illuminating self-reflection about topics that I had never before considered relevant to my treatment, recovery, or self in general. Alsana staff appreciate and treat the individual, and I felt this in and outside of therapy sessions. They always humored my random geography facts and propensity to trail glitter wherever I went. 🙂 Ultimately, my treatment experience at Alsana taught me how to be a shamelessly authentic individual, and it gave me a sense of safety to explore what it means to be myself.
    With so much love,
