LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Roundtable Wellness in Lafayette is starting a new program for people battle eating disorders.
The organization now offers an Intensive Outpatient Program. IOP offers diverse treatment types including mindful yoga therapy, nutrition education, and psychotherapy. It's for people struggling to meet their goal in the general outpatient program or people leaving a higher level of care.
You'll get structured recovery during this 12 week program for nine hours a week. You meet at RoundTable Wellness three times a weekend. One employee said the closest place to get this type of treatment is in Indianapolis or Anderson.
"The idea is that you're still able to go to school , you're still able to go to work," said Director of Marketing Anna Iaobazzi. "When you add that hour to two hours of commute for this type of therapy, it really puts a hinder on still being able to perform your daily tasks.
Workers are introducing IOP to the public Wednesday night with a launch celebration. It's being held now at Roundtable Wellness at the corner of 9th and South streets from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"There are some pre-screens that we can do, some assessments and some collaborations that we like to do prior to getting those individuals started and with that one of those things that we do is check for benefits with your primary insurance," Iaobazzi said.
