About the Victory Bay Eating Disorders IOP

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Further complicating the disease is that most people suffering from an eating disorder often don’t want to believe they’re sick. Feelings of shame are unbearable as the eating disorder grows in silence and secrecy. 

The result is overwhelming feelings of being alone and feeling misunderstood. We work with clients to help them understand the truth behind their eating disorders. Our goal is to help develop the tools and resiliency to take their lives back through behavioral health treatment.

If you or someone you love is struggling with an eating disorder, we’re here for you. Our compassionate team of experts is ready to help you on your long-term recovery journey. Our approach to treatment is completely individualized and focuses on the whole person, rather than just the condition and its symptoms. 

Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides flexibility so you or your loved one can attend treatment while still working full-time, attending school, and meeting family and personal obligations. We support not only our clients but also their loved ones – family and friends – in the recovery process. Our team of recovery experts will act as guides for clients and their families on the path to a healthier, fuller, and more joyous life.
