Virtual Eating Disorder Treatment
We meet you where you are.
Veritas Collaborative’s virtual eating disorder treatment brings compassionate, evidence-based care to you. Patients and families receive the same structure and support offered in our in-person PHP and IOP programs as they do with our online virtual eating disorder treatment, ensuring a strong foundation for lasting recovery.
Our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) eating disorder treatment programs are available virtually, allowing individuals to access eating disorder treatment where they are, online. Patients connect with multidisciplinary providers and peers within a secure online environment.
Our Patient Financial Services team will work with you to determine if your insurance provider covers these online eating disorder treatment services.
What is virtual eating disorder treatment?
Virtual or online eating disorder treatment uses technology to deliver care to clients virtually. It allows you to connect to your treatment team by video to receive the structured care and support you would typically receive in person.
Like traditional intensive programming (PHP and IOP), virtual eating disorder treatment at Veritas Collaborative includes individual, group, and family therapy; therapeutic meal support; nutritional counseling; psychiatry sessions; and medical appointments, as appropriate. Your treatment plan will be personalized to fit your specific needs.
Prior to receiving virtual eating disorder treatment at Veritas Collaborative, you will attend an orientation that introduces your programming schedule and curriculum. Orientation staff will ensure you have access to the appropriate food and nutritional supplements, technology, and other resources you will need to participate in virtual treatment services.
Medical and safety needs will be assessed regularly to ensure you are receiving the level of care appropriate for you.
What if I don’t have internet access at home?
Please let us know if you have any technology concerns (e.g., internet access) that would make it difficult for you to participate from home. We will provide internet for you on-site at Veritas Collaborative so that you can participate in virtual treatment services.
What are meals like over virtual treatment?
Therapeutic meals over virtual treatment involve our eating disorder recovery patients joining others at the table online. They have a short amount of time to prepare their meal prior to sitting with the group to eat. The group size at meals is smaller than in other virtual eating disorder treatment groups to allow for more interaction and support. Staff and peers in the group offer support at the meal so that patients can accomplish their meal-related treatment goals.
Individual & Group Sessions
Patients continue to receive support through individual, family, and group therapy sessions, in addition to individual sessions with their primary dietitian and psychiatric provider.
Multi-Family & Community of Support Programming
Family members and communities of support can participate in weekly virtual meetings where Veritas families and communities gather to share their experiences and draw strength from each other.
Meal Coaching & Support
Patients will continue to receive meal coaching and support provided by clinical team members and Therapeutic Assistants (TAs). In addition, patients participate in a virtual culinary group each week. While participants cook, the virtual format allows for interaction with both the chef and other group members to round out the culinary experience.
Nursing & Medical Visits
Medical and nursing visits remain an integral part of programming. Based on the patient’s clinical needs, visits may be virtual or in-person with appropriate safety measures.
