Since 1997, Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program has provided compassionate and evidence-based mental health disorder treatment to those in need. We are pleased to offer this quality care at the DMA outpatient facility of Southport, Connecticut. We serve patients of all genders and have separate tracks for adolescents ages 11-17 (partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) levels of care for mental health disorders) and adults 18+ (IOP for mental health or co-occurring eating disorders). Our center is convenient to Greenwich, Darien, Stamford, Fairfield, Norwalk, Wilton and other Fairfield County locations.
COMING SOON! ADULT IOP PROGRAM FOR CO-OCCURRING EATING DISORDERS
For some of our adult patients in this community, there are several factors that contribute to a mental health disorder and vice versa. And we understand that specific support is needed to address the root causes for our patients to be successful in treatment and beyond. That’s why we have created an adult IOP co-occurring eating disorder track, specifically for those who have a primary mental health diagnosis with an eating disorder.
Patients in the adult co-occurring IOP program will have the same personalized treatment as our other programs at Southport, along with help from an eating disorder-trained therapist and virtual sessions with a dietitian. Patients will have daily meal support during dinner each day of programming. This dinner will be brought in by the patient, which will have been discussed with the nutritionist ahead of time, ensuring it corresponds with the meal plan. Here’s a look at what can be expected throughout a week (topics and treatment subject to change):
- Nutrition Science
- Intuitive Eating
- Living in Your Body
