Program details

Alsana would like to be your virtual eating recovery community.

Virtual services are offered through a secure, HIPAA compliant and confidential platform.

Treatment is offered 7 days a week with flexible programming throughout the day.

Programming includes individual therapy, group therapy and meal support.

Our program is designed within Alsana’s Adaptive Care Model®, an approach that meets client’s individual needs and addresses the healing of the entire person.

Virtual programming can be tailored to fit your schedule with flexible hours from 3-7 days per week for virtual IOP and 5-7 days per week for virtual PHP.

Virtual treatment builds a sense of community by allowing you to share your home environment.

You will work on your recovery by preparing meals you have chosen in advance, using your own food, in your own home, with the support of an Alsana dietitian virtually.

Program quality considerations

At Alsana, we know you have many options for eating disorder treatment. We would like to be your Eating Recovery Community, but ultimately we would like you to feel confident and supported in taking the next steps.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Alsana’s virtual IOP and PHP programs offer clients treatment by a Master’s-level clinician in the state where the client is located. This is an important requirement that all potential clients should consider in choosing a program for treatment.
...

  • Alsana’s virtual IOP and PHP program has been in development for several years. During this time Alsana has worked rigorously to obtain licensure in the majority of states across the United States. In rare instances where Alsana does not hold a state license, we will advocate for licensure reciprocity for each client individually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Alsana is an advocate for clients in receiving insurance coverage for virtual programming. We are in-network for virtual programming with nearly all major payers. In addition, there are many plans that have agreed to waive co-pays.
  • Alsana’s virtual IOP and PHP digital platform ensures that all virtual services are confidential, HIPAA compliant and secure.
  • Alsana is a staunch supporter of broadening access to care for anyone struggling from an eating disorder. We have worked collaboratively with many other eating disorder providers to share our best practices and learn from theirs. We support all programs honoring each of these quality considerations.

Any client who admits to an Alsana virtual program can be assured that:
  • A licensed clinician eligible to provide treatment in the state in which your patient physically resides will be the one providing care.
  • All services are provided on a secure, confidential and HIPAA compliant platform.
  • They will receive evidenced-based clinical care with comprehensive medical oversight.
  • Their care will be covered by their insurance company.
  • A warm and relational team of caregivers is guiding them on their treatment journey.
