Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Adolescents

A New Beginning is honored to offer our innovative Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents – HEAL.

HEAL – Helping Empower Adolescents To Live was born from our commitment to support adolescents and their families in the pursuit of full recovery and holistic healing.

HEAL’s Innovative IOP Programming

Our incredible team of adolescent specialists, Sarah Halvorson, LMFT, Christina Caple, MS, RD , Christine Quintana, MA, LPC, CEDS, and Sarah Neville, MPH, RDN offer a unique, family-centered and evidenced-based program that is designed to treat the WHOLE adolescent. In fact, groups are designed to provide adolescents with both eating disorder recovery skills and teen-focused empowerment life skills.

The HEAL IOP schedule offers three hours of state-of-the-art programming per day on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 4:00 to 7:00pm.

Programming includes one supported meal experience per day.

Our HEAL program schedule is designed to fit an adolescent’s busy life and provides time for homework, relaxation, and family connection. Our program offers several innovative approaches, including expressive arts therapy, experiential meals, and skills classes.

Our Emotionally-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) monthly program, “It Takes A Family,” allows families to connect and build tools to support their loved ones into FULL Recovery. All of our psychotherapy groups incorporate evidence-based coping skills, social skills, and eating disorder recovery strategies.

We are proud to offer our programming in BOTH an in-person format and a virtual format. For those teens who can attend our center in Scottsdale, we welcome them to join us for in-person group programming. And for those teens who live further away and/or who are taking extra COVID precautions, we welcome them to join us for virtual programming, which is live-streamed during the in-person programming. Either way, teens are sure to receive the education, camaraderie, and recovery-focused experiences they deserve!


We’ve Created a Safe, Comfortable Environment to HEAL












Adolescents and their families are welcomed into A New Beginning’s characteristic positive, hopeful atmosphere while being encouraged to challenge their disordered ways of coping and being supported into creating healthy and lasting CHANGE.
