Outpatient treatment programs

Recovery from an eating disorder is possible. With willingness and specialised treatment you or your loved one can gain freedom from an eating disorder.

Our treatment programs are designed to provide intensive outpatient treatment for individuals on their journey to recovery.

The programs were developed by Butterfly Foundation with the goal of demonstrating the effectiveness of intensive outpatient programs for individuals with eating disorders, so we can better advocate for an increase in access to appropriate care through Medicare and/or health insurance-supported programs for people across Australia.
