Why is Veritas expanding its outpatient offerings?

At Veritas Collaborative, we believe in offering the right level of care at the right time for each individual.

Outpatient levels of care, including PHP, IOP, and OP, allow us to provide treatment for patients who are struggling with an eating disorder but are medically stable enough that 24/7 residential or inpatient care is not needed.

Specialty outpatient treatment for eating disorders offers effective early intervention. It is imperative that eating disorders are treated as soon as they’re identified. There’s no such thing as not being “sick enough” to receive treatment. Studies show that early intervention for eating disorders leads to improved treatment outcomes, reducing the length of recovery, symptom intensity, and rate of recurrence. Early intervention for children and adolescents is especially crucial to ensure the patient’s physical, psychological, and social development continues unimpeded.

Alternatively, outpatient care is recommended for patients who are stepping down from residential and inpatient levels of care so they can transition from 24/7 treatment for a severe eating disorder back to their everyday lives with a support system in place.


What is the difference between partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient services at Veritas Collaborative?

At Veritas Collaborative, PHP and IOP are designed for patients in need of professional support that is less intensive than that provided in a residential setting but more intensive than that provided in a traditional outpatient setting.

  • Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a good fit for those who need a highly structured, supportive plan while recovering in a “real life” setting. Outside of programming hours, patients can immediately practice recovery skills in their daily lives. Patients typically spend a minimum of 30 hours per week in PHP.
  • Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), like PHP, is for those who need more structure than non-intensive outpatient treatment but less structure than full-day support. IOP programming runs for only a portion of the day. Patients typically spend a minimum of 12 hours per week in IOP.
  • Outpatient services are non-intensive sessions that typically occur weekly, biweekly, or on an as-needed basis. This level of care is meant for those who are not in a crisis phase with their eating disorder or those in recovery who need some ongoing support.

What if my patient lives far from a treatment center?

Veritas Collaborative has affordable lodging accommodations near our Triangle Outpatient Center for adults (18+) who live far away from the treatment location. If parents want to stay near their child during treatment, our staff will assist with locating nearby hotel accommodations. Your patient may also want to consider a virtual treatment option.


Does Veritas offer virtual programming at the outpatient level?

Yes, we offer both virtual and in-person treatment options for PHP, IOP, and outpatient sessions. Both virtual and in-person intensive outpatient programs include individual, group, and family therapy, therapeutic meal support, nutrition counseling, psychiatry sessions, and medical appointments, as appropriate.

      “My wife and I have been at war with our daughter’s ED for years. She was admitted to Veritas Charlotte’s PHP program.  Fast forward six weeks, and our daughter is a different person. She no longer stares vacantly at her plate, refusing to eat. She’s properly nourished and eats without prompting. The shine has returned to her eyes. It hasn’t been an easy road and we’ve had our setbacks. Thank you Veritas for helping us get our girl back! ”

      What to Expect from the Child & Adolescent Eating Disorder Treatment Program at Veritas Collaborative in Atlanta, Georgia

      The Child and Adolescent Treatment Program offered by Veritas Collaborative is a comprehensive and specialized care program designed to address the unique needs of young individuals struggling with eating disorders. The program focuses on early intervention and personalized treatment plans to provide the best possible care for children and adolescents.

      Veritas Collaborative takes a holistic approach to eating disorder treatment by integrating evidence-based therapies to address the complex psychological and emotional factors associated with eating disorders in children and adolescents. Individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy are key components of the program, allowing patients to explore and understand the underlying causes of their disorder, develop coping mechanisms, and work toward lasting recovery.

      With a dedicated multidisciplinary team of medical professionals, therapists, dietitians, and support staff, Veritas Collaborative ensures that each patient receives comprehensive and tailored care. This team collaborates closely to address both the physical and mental well-being of the patients, as well as provide support for their families.

      The program actively involves parents or guardians in the treatment process, recognizing the vital role they play in a child or adolescent’s recovery. By including parents and guardians in therapy sessions and providing education and guidance, the program creates a supportive and nurturing environment that promotes healing and long-term success.

We recognize that children and adolescents have unique developmental needs, and we provide education, skill-building, and activities that are tailored to their specific age group. This approach helps patients develop a healthy relationship with food and body image, fostering their overall growth and well-being.

      What to Expect from the Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Program at Veritas Collaborative in Atlanta, Georgia

      The Adult Treatment Program at Veritas Collaborative is a comprehensive and specialized care program designed to support adults struggling with eating disorders. The program offers a range of evidence-based treatments and a multidisciplinary approach to address the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of eating disorders in adults.

      At Veritas Collaborative, we strive to help you realize that you are not your eating disorder. A person is a rich mix of passions, challenges, goals, and feelings. An eating disorder is just one part—and by no means an unchangeable part—of who you are. We provide whole-person care. We tailor a treatment plan to meet you where you are in life, considering your family relationships, career, friendships, and personal objectives.

      Veritas Collaborative’s Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Program is staffed by a team of experienced professionals, including physicians, therapists, dietitians, and support staff who work collaboratively to provide holistic care. They address the medical, nutritional, and emotional needs of each individual, ensuring a well-rounded approach to treatment.

      A collaborative community of support is a great help in managing an eating disorder. Our program fosters a sense of community and encourages peer support through group therapy sessions, allowing individuals to connect with others who are going through similar challenges.

      In addition to therapy, the program also focuses on nutritional rehabilitation. Registered dietitians play a crucial role in developing customized meal plans and providing education on balanced nutrition. This helps individuals develop healthier eating habits and restore a healthy relationship with food.

      Veritas Collaborative’s Adult Eating Disorder Treatment Program aims to help you build a life worth living. We provide a comprehensive and personalized approach to support adults in their recovery from eating disorders. By addressing the physical, psychological, and emotional aspects of the eating disorder, the program aims to help individuals achieve sustainable recovery, improved well-being, and a healthier relationship with food and their bodies.
