Treatment Philosophy & Approach

We believe treatment is most meaningful and successful when an individual’s family or trusted support system of loved ones lends a loving hand in healing. In drawing from the family-based treatment (FBT) modality, we actively engage family members in our program so they may confidently encourage their loved one’s recovery. They say home is where the heart is. At Thrive Wellness Sacramento, we believe that home is also where healing happens.


Our Family Intensive Outpatient Program (FIOP) for adolescents and young adults (under the age of 18) strives to empower family members to help their loved ones heal from an eating disorder. Through individual therapy, family therapy, education, and more, patients and their families learn the skills they need to reach recovery together.

Because our clinicians provide intensive and comprehensive psychoeducation sessions to patients and their families, all participants gain a greater understanding of the eating disorder and co-existing conditions. Family members also realize their critical roles in supporting their loved one’s recovery

At the beginning of treatment, family members learn strategies to obstruct their loved one’s eating disorder. From there, Thrive specialists and supportive family members fuse to form the treatment team. Together, the team focuses on healing psychological struggles and addressing environmental factors that are contributing to the eating disorder. 

Out of respect for privacy and commitment to personalized care, our treatment program is limited to two to four families at once. The program allows and encourages patients and their families to continue daily life during recovery so that healing becomes resilient enough to endure life’s stressors.


The road to recovery from an eating disorder is not linear, which can be challenging for individuals and their loved ones alike. Many individuals suffering from eating disorders also struggle to find others who understand their experience and “speak the same language.” This can also be true for their parents, partners, and others within one’s inner circle. A primary benefit of group therapy and support groups is the ability to connect with and receive support from others with lived experience. Having a strong support system can significantly promote one’s progress on the path to healing and empower those around them as well. Therefore, we weave both group therapy and support groups into the fabric of our treatment approach. Carers are encouraged to be involved in their loved one’s treatment and are invited to join our free weekly support group to deepen their own understanding and develop skills to support their loved ones.
