Personalized treatment plans
Our personalized treatment approach is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. We personalize each treatment plan, using best practices to provide:
- Individual therapy for one-on-one sessions with a therapist who specializes in eating disorders and associated health complications
- Group therapy with other adults experiencing similar issues, thoughts, and feelings
- Family therapy, if appropriate, to involve the spouse or partner, children, parents, siblings, and other family in the healing process
- Nutritional rehabilitation, such as therapeutic meals and snacks, cooking classes, and recovery practice in real-world food situations
- Medical and psychiatric services, with monitoring for vitals, medication, and other follow-up care
- Chemical dependency and trauma programming
- Integrative therapies such as art, yoga, movement, and recreational therapy
Every client at The Emily Program has an individual therapist and dietitian, someone you’ll see as an inpatient or outpatient. In individual therapy, you may meet one-on-one with your therapist, dietitian, psychiatrist, and/or physician. Your care team develops a personal connection with you and your family. Our staff’s unwavering commitment to recovery strengthens this healing connection.
At The Emily Program, we believe that group therapy can be an incredibly important part of your recovery from an eating disorder, because groups provide a safe, judgment-free environment to process thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with other people in similar situations. We offer many therapeutic and skill-building groups, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training, Eating Disorders And Chemical Dependency sessions, Adult Support, Families Supporting Families, yoga, and art therapy. Group sessions vary by location. Your individual therapist will recommend a group that might be the best fit for you.
