Recovery from an eating disorder is possible. With willingness, motivation and specialised support participants have the opportunity to rediscover freedom from the domination of an eating disorder. Butterfly offers two intensive treatment programs; one for adolescents and one for adults. Follow the links below for more information. 

Click on the name of the Treatment Program you are interested in to find out more.

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) - A unique and specialised treatment program for eating disorders which encourages a person to overcome obstacles that are interfering with their quality of life to improve motivation and action towards recovery.
  • Butterfly’s Outpatient Program for Young People (Youth Program) - A 10 week therapeutic group program providing early intervention for young people with emerging eating disorders.
  • SCHN Eating Disorder Intensive Program for Adolescents - This program is specially designed for adolescents who have not progressed with previous treatment programs. The interventions are tailored to address the specific barriers adolescents with an eating disorder experience by increasing their capacity to cope with distress and the challenge of eating. 
  • Financial Assistance for Recovery Program - If you are struggling to meet the costs of treatment and are motivated to recover then through the generous support of Sportsgirl, we are able to assist. We provide financial assistance to help pay for psychotherapy, dietetics and other associated treatment costs.
