What if I am already working with another therapist?
The FAB team will collaborate with your current professionals in order to provide you with treatment that will work best for you. We always recommend that a medical doctor be involved in the recovery journey, if you don’t have a preferred medical doctor of your own, the FAB team will make a recommendation that will be best for you. Your outside therapist (or any other professional), can be added to the FAB curriculum so they can interact with you on your lessons and communicate with you through our platform. We would like to invite your chosen external professionals to your treatment team meetings, so they too can be a part of your FAB journey and provide feedback on your progress.
I have tried so many things already, how do I know if FAB will work for me?
This program has been specially crafted by professionals with decades of experience working with people just like you, who have struggled with food and body issues and found a path to recovery. We have an amazing, expert team of professionals using the best practices and technology for treating disordered eating and a one of a kind curriculum that is designed to provide the clearest pathway to your ultimate healing and recovery. We also track and measure progress every step of the way, so both you and your team will know if the FAB program is making the desired impact. What is most important regarding your recovery progress is that you do the program as it is designed, engaging in all levels of the program: 1:1 sessions, group sessions, lessons on the curriculum, involvement of family and loved ones in the process, and treatment team meetings. What you put into the program, you will get out of it! Your commitment is key. Most people start the program with what we call “bambi legs” and are perhaps unsure or even doubtful, which is okay! We can help you work through all of these feelings. Your work is to keep showing-up no matter what!
How do I meet with the FAB team?
You will meet with the FAB team in individual sessions, group sessions, and in-treatment team meetings. Our team is available to you in-between sessions, so you have support whenever you need it. Our group sessions are completed via zoom. While our individual sessions can be scheduled either in-person or on zoom depending on the needs and desires of each participant and their team.
When is the best time to start the program?
The best time to get started is right away! It is easy for life to get busy and even easier to convince yourself that you don’t really need support and guidance with your food and body struggles.
What we have found through years of working with clients with food and body struggles, is that these problems do not get better with time nor do they go away on their own. If anything, they get worse over time and the consequences to your health can be signficant.
The great thing about FAB is that we have developed the program to work in alignment with your daily life. We ask people to create time in their schedule, approximately 3.5 hours on a weekly basis, to dedicate to their FAB recovery journey.
How long is the program?
12 month commitment.
To get maximum results from the FAB program, a client will participate in all 5 stages of transformation, which takes a year for most clients.
Through each stage, the FAB team and your chosen professionals will be tracking your progress in order to make recommendations that best fit your unique treatment journey.
