Eating disorders are serious illnesses
Eating disorders are real, complex illnesses that can cause severe harm. Like schizophrenia or diabetes, eating disorders are not a choice, fad, or phase. Eating disorders are also more prevalent than many people realize, and they rarely resolve on their own. Fortunately, they are treatable. The Emily Program provides personalized treatment plans that help each person on the path to recovery.
The Emily Program offers proven and personalized treatment for all types of eating disorders. The process starts with a complete eating disorder assessment. Then we’ll create a plan for your path to recovery. No matter your age. No matter your gender. We’re here to help.
Prolonged and extreme food restriction and malnourishment that causes dramatic and sustained weight loss. This often presents with a genuine fear of gaining weight and other body image issues.
Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
A feeding or eating disorder that is characterized by fear, a lack of interest in food, or an avoidance of certain foods that results in persistent failure to meet adequate nutritional needs.
Binge Eating Disorder
Excessive and uncontrolled consumption of food or a particular food without the regular use of compensatory measures to counter the binge eating; often present with a pattern of “yo-yo dieting.”
Food is consumed but then expelled by self-induced vomiting, laxatives, or other methods. This is often present with a genuine fear of gaining weight and other body image issues
Excessive and uncontrollable consumption of a variety of foods or one food in particular, often to the point of feeling unwell. Typically, there are no purging behaviors that follow consumption.
Eating Disorder/Substance Use Disorder
Eating disorders often occur alongside struggles with alcohol and drugs. If left untreated, these disorders can cause significant ongoing problems and prevent you from recovering fully. We believe that simultaneously treating both disorders in a dual diagnosis is the most effective approach for a lifetime of recovery.
Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders (OSFED)
A feeding or eating disorder that causes significant distress or impairment, but does not meet the criteria for another feeding or eating disorder.
Related Mental Health Issues
Eating disorders often present with a second disorder, including substance use disorder, anxiety, trauma, or depression, to name a few. We believe that simultaneously treating both disorders in a dual diagnosis is the most effective approach for a lifetime of recovery.
