Butterfly's Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a fee for service Treatment Program inspired by the work of Carolyn Costin.
The IOP aims to empower each person's healthy self and instil a strong belief in the hope of recovery.This program represents a unique and different approach to eating disorder treatment in Australia.
Using combined elements of a strong clinical team, high staff to client ratio and individual treatment plans, the IOP works to enhance the ability for the individual to deal with his or her eating disorder by:
The environment of the IOP is designed to reflect real-life situations that are encountered in daily life.
The IOP staff provide meal therapy where staff support patients through the meal process and act as role models by eating themselves.
The staff work closely with clients in an open and non-judgemental way, placing significant emphasis on forming respectful and trusting therapeutic relationships.
