New Orleans’ Only Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program Opening In August
NEW ORLEANS – Beginning in August, Martin Mental Health will move its office Uptown, to 7611 Maple St., to offer an intensive outpatient program for eating disorder treatment.
Martin Mental Health’s new office space will triple in size to include room for supervised meal therapy, structured group therapy, and nutritional counseling. The evening intensive outpatient program will use evidenced based treatment protocols to provide education to the individual and their families on the development of the eating disorder, normalize their struggles in order to reduce shame and to socialize them with adaptive coping skills to empower their recovery.
“Moving back to New Orleans from Denver, I’ve worked very hard over the last two years to establish my reputation and gain the trust of local practitioners,” J. Casey Martin, licensed professional counselor (LPC) owner of Martin Mental Health, said. “I’m thankful to be in the position to expand my practice and offer this specialized eating disorder treatment program.”
In 2013, Martin moved back to New Orleans to start his practice specializes in the treatment of eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS).
Before returning to New Orleans, Martin worked as the program coordinator at the Eating Disorder Center of Denver where he received national recognition presenting and publishing on eating disorder treatment. He is also a volunteer and board member of Luke’s House Clinic, a Community Advisory Board Member of Tulane’s Prevention Research Center and an active contributor of Fit Nola.
