PRESS RELEASE: 1/13/2019
Resilience Center is pleased to announce the beginning of an innovative new program: Resilience RecoverED: Intensive Outpatient Program for Disordered Eating, opening on January 17, 2019.
Resilience RecoverED is a program for adults who are at least 18 years old and who have a problematic relationship with food behaviors, which may include undereating, binging, purging, overexercise, to the point of interference with mental, physical, social, and/or economic health.
This intensive program is designed to help clients diagnosed with an eating disorder to gain insight into the neurobiological, emotional, and physical aspects of disordered eating, to change problematic behaviors, to build and strengthen a support system, and to learn to care for themselves in new, more resilient, ways.
The 6-week program includes weekly individual therapy, nutrition counseling, and both skills-based and process groups.
The first of its kind in Oklahoma, the program alternates between being offered on site at the Tulsa office of Resilience Center and online, using HIPAA compliant software.
“If someone can stream Netflix; has a computer, laptop, or tablet with a webcam; and a pair of headphones, then they have the technological capability to participate in Resilience RecoverED,” says co-owner and eating disorder therapist, Ryanne Mitchell, LPC.
This is the first telehealth intensive outpatient program for eating disorders in Oklahoma, and it is the hope of Resilience Center to be able to provide higher level, intensive services for individuals in need, regardless of proximity to Oklahoma City or Tulsa (the only two cities that currently offer this service).
