Two-Week Intensives for Relapse Prevention
Eating disorder recovery is not linear, and eating disorder lapses happen. The good news is lapses do not have to turn into relapses. With support, you can nourish your hard-earned recovery and regain your balance.
Two-Week Intensives are relapse prevention programs at PHP/IOP levels of care, designed to support those struggling to maintain their recovery from eating disorders. Relapse prevention programming is available virtually and in person. If you or someone you know needs help, contact us today.

This approach broadens nutrition healing for our clients from all cultural and diverse backgrounds. Our goal is to create food neutrality by taking out the moral judgment of food and focusing on nourishment, flexibility, and pleasure in the nutritional healing process.
