- Why Choose Rosewood
Rosewood Tempe™ Outpatient Clinic is a general outpatient counseling, nutrition and psychiatric services program that is specifically designed to meet the needs of our clients. We are here to help with a broad range of issues from depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral problems, addictions, family or relationship conflicts, and eating disorders. The purpose of the Rosewood Intensive Outpatient program is two fold:
Description of Services:
Counseling services are provided by a Licensed Counselor and include individual, group, and when indicated, family therapy. Group counseling is offered five days a week, Monday through Saturday. Individual and family counseling maybe scheduled on an "as needed" basis. Co-occurring problems such as substance abuse, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, etc. are also treated in conjunction with the client's eating disorder.
Adolescents are separate from adult clients and meet from 3:45-7:00pm three days a week. They have their own Therapist and all groups are age appropriate.
Rosewood Tempe Outpatient Clinic completes the continuum of care at Rosewood. Our IOP programs provide structure for adults and adolescents who have an eating disorder diagnosis but do not require inpatient treatment. These programs also serve as transitional support for patients who have completed an inpatient eating disorder treatment program.
Rosewood offers Intensive Outpatient Programs as well as Outpatient Services in multiple locations in both Arizona and California. The Rosewood Tempe IOP program is conveniently located adjacent to the Arizona State University Main Campus.
Our experienced Registered Dietitians provide a comprehensive nutritional evaluation during the initial stage of treatment and design a customized meal plan for each resident. Each resident will address the complex and varied eating issues as they meet with the dietitian for individual sessions, participate in meal planning classes, attend educational presentations, and engaged in experiential activities. More about our nutrition program.
Rosewood is committed to offering a full continuum of care from Inpatient Residential, Partial Hospitalization with housing, IOP and Outpatient Services. We believe that the longer the individual and Rosewood are engaged in a productive treatment dialog, the greater the chances of success and lifelong recovery.
