Meet People Who Truly Understand Your Experience
“Our eating disorders are very confusing to us, but they are not so confusing to others,” says Dr. Dirk Miller, CEO/Founder of The Emily Program. That kind of crucial perspective is very valuable in recovery. Ask your therapist to recommend a group that’s right for you.
You’re Never Alone On This Recovery Journey
Group sessions help you reflect and share with others
Part of your recommended treatment might include joining one of our therapy groups. Groups help you process your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with other people in similar situations to yours. Some group sessions are therapy-based while others focus on building skills. All of them are safe, confidential, and judgment-free.
At The Emily Program, we believe that group therapy can be an incredibly important part of an individual’s recovery from an eating disorder.
The Emily Program facilitates a wide array of groups, including Eating Disorder Recovery, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Body Image, and more. We’re sure to have one that meets your needs and interests. Your individual therapist can guide you toward one that fits you best.
Want to join a group?
Please speak with your individual therapist about any group opportunities that interest you. Your provider can help guide and inform you about which groups would be a good fit for where you are on your path to recovery. Your provider is also your contact to enroll in any of our outpatient groups.
Groups are available at our Minnesota, Washington, and Ohio locations
Please download our catalogs for group descriptions and schedules for each of our locations. Our group offerings change frequently and you must be registered to participate.
