At Aster Springs Outpatient – Columbus, we provide customized care that’s designed to meet each client’s specific needs and unique goals. We understand that people are not their diagnosis; they’re a combination of all that’s happened in their lives and their future journeys. Because of this, our treatment team partners with clients and their families to design treatment plans that provide a successful pathway to recovery. Treatment can include psychotherapy groups, individual and family therapy, nutrition education, meal planning and support, and aftercare planning and assistance.
In a supportive and healing environment, we take a whole-person, trauma-informed approach to treatment using evidence-based modalities that facilitate progress from clinical care towards independent self-care.

What Alumni, Families, and Clinical Partners Are Saying
“I had IOP for an eating disorder over 7 weeks and I highly recommend as the therapy provided new insights and coping skills. Jess is an amazing counselor and everyone else takes an interest in helping you accomplish your goals. Thank you.”
“I was in IOP with Aster Springs for over 3 months and I truly didn’t know what to expect when I got there. The whole team was amazing, welcoming and truly wanted me to get better on my own time. I felt heard, like I could relax and take healing at my own pace. The groups were fun, inviting and they really make you feel special/heard. Thanks to my team and my therapist Kim, I feel like I am on a much stronger solid path now and that they saved my life. If you are struggling and have thought about getting help call them today. You will not regret it”
