Located in San Francisco, California, Woodleaf Eating Disorder Center has been providing flexible outpatient treatment programs to clients struggling with eating disorders and related co-occurring disorders since 2006. Woodleaf offers flexible group and individual therapy treatment plans, as well as a structured Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for both men and women over the age of 18. Woodleaf’s philosophy is based on the principles of hope, harm reduction and self-acceptance. The goal of the Woodleaf approach is to help clients fully heal from eating disorders by addressing emotional and mental health.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, potential clients must schedule an intake appointment with a counselor. These are available Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 8 pm. Upon admission, new clients work with staff members to develop individualized treatment plans for each person. Dual diagnosis support is available for those dealing with anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder and other mental health issues that may be contributing to eating disorders.
Woodlake’s IOP lasts eight to 12 weeks and generally meets for three to five days, for three to four hours at a time. Sessions take place in the evening hours to accommodate work or school. The IOP includes group and individual therapy and utilizes evidence-based practices, primarily CBT and DBT. Topics covered include nutrition, body image, dual diagnosis issues and relapse prevention. Medication management is provided as well. Though the program is not 12-step based, in certain cases, attendance at local OA meetings in the area is strongly encouraged.
Family therapy, including multi-family groups, is also worked into the program as necessary.
Woodleaf Eating Disorder Center provides a individualized approach to treating clients with eating disorders and related behavioral health issues. All programs are flexible and customizable, with a balance of evidence-based and holistic care methods. For those seeking adult outpatient care for eating disorders, this is an excellent option.
