NEW, DBT-adherent Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program

Portland DBT Institute is pleased to announce the opening of a DBT-adherent
Intensive Outpatient Program for the Treatment of Eating Disorders.

This program is intended to provide a higher level of care treatment option for adults struggling with an eating disorder who also need more support than a typical weekly outpatient therapy service or are ready to ‘step-down’ from a residential or PHP program.  Our program is built firmly on a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) foundation and is provided in a DBT-adherent setting by DBT trained clinicians.  Clients who attend our program will participate in 1-2 meals* per clinical day, in addition to groups which are focused on teaching and practicing the DBT skills. We will help you plan for the week and the coming weekend and work to understand what is getting the way of the changes you need to make to follow your path to recovery.

DBT is known to benefit multi-disordered, complex individuals who present with a myriad of problems based often in intense emotion dysregulation. These include: chronic suicidality, self-harm behaviors, borderline personality disorder and other personality disorders, a history of trauma/PTSD, substance abuse – in addition to eating disorders. DBT is especially helpful for people who struggle with more than one problem or who have tried other more-conventional therapies and are still struggling.
