At Eating Disorder Solutions we understand that eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions affect each person differently.

Eating Disorder Outpatient Program Options
For clients seeking outpatient eating disorder treatment in Dallas, Eating Disorder Solutions offers two levels of care: Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
Both outpatient levels of care allow clients to return home or to our transitional housing facility at the end of each day. These treatment programs focus on strengthening your commitment to recovery and providing support and guidance as you navigate the daily challenges of early recovery. During outpatient care, our clients continue participating in group meals and processing groups to address negative thoughts and feelings as they arise. Our supplemental experiential group therapy sessions provide clients with opportunities to challenge food fears and disordered thinking in a safe, controlled environment with the aid of our expert dietitians, clinicians, and therapists.
Partial hospitalization is the highest level of outpatient treatment offered at Eating Disorder Solutions. This level of care provides extended support and structure as clients transition from residential care back into everyday life. Whether you began your recovery journey with Eating Disorder Solutions or join us after completing treatment at another facility, each client receives the same compassionate, person-first care with an emphasis on meeting your specific needs.
- Hours: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through Friday
- Clients receive three meals, three snacks, and participate in five group therapy sessions. Twice a week, clients will meet with their therapist for individual or family therapy sessions.
- Psychoeducational programming, meal support, nutrition education, trauma recovery, and actionable life skills training for developing positive coping mechanisms.
- Experiential therapy outings to grocery stores, restaurants, cooking classes, etc.
Intensive outpatient programs offer a greater level of freedom and personal accountability than higher levels of care while maintaining continued recovery as a priority. The flexibility of IOP programming allows clients to work, go to school, or attend to other obligations. By staying connected to your support network and consistent in your continued treatment plan, you can help to ensure your lasting success in recovery.
- Hours: 10:45 AM to 3:00 PM three to five days a week Monday through Friday.
- Clients receive one meal and participate in one group session per day. Once a week clients will meet with their therapist for an individual or family session.
- Opportunities to participate in experiential therapy outings and other events.

Evidence-Based Therapies for Eating Disorder Recovery
Eating Disorder Solutions’ comprehensive treatment programs are evidence-based and trauma-informed to help you identify and overcome the root causes of eating disorders and other harmful behaviors. These highly effective therapy modalities are proven to help reframe the way we think about our relationship with food and improve emotional self-regulation to help break the cycle of disordered eating. They include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy challenges the negative thought-behavior patterns behind disordered eating and other harmful habits. By identifying triggering thoughts, emotions, and situations, CBT clients develop a better sense of self-awareness beneficial to breaking the cycle.
Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is talk-therapy, specifically designed to treat co-occurring mental health and personality disorders. Throughout the course of treatment clients are equipped with real-world skills to improve self-esteem, self-acceptance, and emotional regulation for continued sobriety.
Harm Reduction Therapy
Harm reduction therapy teaches clients they are in control of their recovery journey. Therapy redirects old patterns of behavior, fomenting new perspectives in addressing disordered eating habits. The goal of harm reduction therapy is to minimize risks of relapse and eating disorder behaviors.
Expressive Arts Therapy
Emotional processing through artistic expression can make it easier to work through trauma and challenging emotions. Drawing, painting, writing, and other crafts offer a beneficial means of self-discovery and expression.
Co-Occurring Disorder Expertise
Depression, anxiety, and trauma are some of the conditions that can go hand in hand with eating disorders. Our staff is experienced in recognizing these conditions and helping clients overcome them.
Our Outpatient Eating Disorder Treatment Team
At Eating Disorder Solutions, clients receive compassionate care from a multidisciplinary team of licensed and board-certified physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, registered dietitians, and nurses.
