The Emily Program understands individuals unique, and they intuitively seek purpose, value, and creativity in life. Effective treatment necessitates an understanding of each person’s genetic, biochemical, psychological, social, and cultural influences. Simply put, we believe that treating you with your best interests in mind will help you improve.

The Emily Program is a more comfortable option for clients who require intense and supervised care since it enables recovery in a homelike atmosphere that is peaceful and safe. Clients and their families benefit from the residential recovery experience because it teaches them how to detect and alter damaging eating disorder habits and replace them with good, long-term coping mechanisms that promote a full and happy life.

The Emily Program physicians, psychiatrists, therapists, nutritionists, and other healthcare and education specialists collaborate with our Emily Program’s devoted, experienced care teams to build a unique treatment plan for each client in our residential programs. The full range of eating disorders and related health issues is addressed by multidisciplinary evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), the Maudsley Approach to Family-Based Treatment, and integrative interventions such as art and movement. Every day, the rehabilitation process is reinforced through individual and group treatment, as well as family counseling and nutrition instruction.

We mix evidence-based treatment with tailored integrative therapies at The Emily Program. We’ve discovered that effective eating disorder therapy necessitates an understanding of each client’s genetic, biochemical, psychological, social, and cultural influences.

At the Emily Program, we have a broad and diversified evidence-informed basis for therapy, given the complexity of eating disorder behaviors, clinical manifestations, and individual and family needs. Our programs are created by professionals who have a thorough understanding of eating disorders, and our treatment decisions are made with respect for each individual’s unique experience. Research, community standards, and competent clinical judgment are all used to guide treatment. Our programs address basic ED behaviors and beliefs, emotional regulation and management, nutritional and health rehabilitation, and the development of recovery skills across the board. We’re also always on the lookout for fresh approaches that could help our clients.

At The Emily Program, we believe that all cuisines are welcome and that there should be no food judgment. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions and use the experience of our Registered Dietitians to help people understand why they eat the way they do. We are aware of the multifaceted function that food plays in our lives, as well as the various eating scenarios that arise. As a result, we strive to deliver nutrition and food-related experiences, education, advice, and skills that help people develop a more conscious, flexible, balanced, autonomous, and sustainable relationship with food.

We recognize that food has a variety of nutritional profiles, that each person’s nutritional needs are distinct, and that each person has a different culinary experience at the Emily Program. To properly fuel one’s body and improve quality of life, we seek to promote the highest level of individualization and personal choice possible. We recognize that this will take on numerous forms throughout your recovery, but it will ultimately provide you with a sense of freedom and actual choice in how you buy, prepare, and consume food.

We believe that mobility is essential. Movement aids in the development of a stronger bond with the body. Gentle walking and yoga are encouraged and taught. Clients’ goals for experiencing and practicing leisure activities are supported by movement therapies, which teach movement without compulsion. The level of movement must be supported by nutritional intake. We advocate gentle movement and may limit opportunities to engage in activity that might lead to weight loss or medical instability when weight restoration is required or clients have a history of compulsive exercise/movement. The Emily Program concentrates on incorporating movement that is appropriate for each individual’s recovery goals.
