Intensive Outpatient Services

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic and Michigan's shelter-in-place order, IOP is now meeting only virtually, and for limited hours: 11-2 on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. We are able to accept a limited number of referrals to IOP at this time; individuals MUST be medically stable.  If you are a professional with a referral, or an individual seeking this level of care, please call 616.957.7700 and speak to Gail or Ashley.

Our program is designed for adolescents and adults in need of more support than weekly therapy can provide, and is an excellent alternative to inpatient hospitalization for individuals who are medically stable and at least 80% ideal body weight. Medical clearance may be required.

IOP is also an appropriate "step-down" from more intensive services, whether inpatient, residential, or day hospital programming. We welcome individuals struggling with anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder. Because of the small size of our program we are able to be creative with programming in order to meet individual needs.

We now have contracts with Priority Health and ASR, and can negotiate Single Case Agreements with Optum plans. Our Therapists are providers with Priority Health, Blue Care Network, Blue Cross, Aetna, Cofinity, Medicare, Medicaid and Magellan, which will generally cover group and individual therapy. Some insurance plans will reimburse for the dietitian's services. For those families or individuals who do not have insurance coverage we charge a private pay rate of $150/day.


Ashley Ransley, LLMSW, IOP Program Coordinator

Ashley wears a variety of hats, from intake coordinator to experiential group leader to communication specialist & team leader.  We work hard to coordinate care with previous providers, and seek to facilitate a smooth transition as our patients discharge from IOP.  Ashley is an integral part of this process.
