Announcing Residential Care for Adults in Columbus, OH

Announcing Residential Care for Adults in Columbus, OH

The Emily Program is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our services to meet the increasing need for adult residential programming in Ohio. Our new Columbus residential program will provide exceptional, individualized care to adults of all genders struggling with eating disorders.

“We’re thrilled to extend residential care to more individuals in Columbus,” says Site Director Jennifer Beck, LPCC-S. “Eating disorders are serious illnesses, but they are also highly treatable. Access to effective care at the appropriate level is crucial. Residential treatment isn’t widely available in the region, so we’re pleased to fulfill this critical need.”

Ohio is home to an estimated 1,029,001 people grappling with eating disorders, and the consequences of untreated illnesses are staggering. Eating disorders have the second-highest mortality rate among mental health conditions, only surpassed by opioid use disorder. The right care at the right time is key to recovery.

“Residential treatment is the optimal choice for individuals facing severe symptoms or requiring more structure and support than an outpatient facility can provide,” said Dr. Mark Warren, Chief Medical Officer of The Emily Program. “Our multidisciplinary team, comprising physicians, therapists, dietitians, and other health and education professionals, collaborates to achieve medical, psychological, and nutritional stability. This level of care equips clients with the skills to continue recovery at lower levels and within their support systems.”

The residential program will be conveniently housed in the same building as our current outpatient facility on Ravine’s Edge, ensuring seamless continuity of care as clients transition through different treatment levels during their recovery journey.

This expansion extends The Emily Program’s residential services in the region to adolescents and adults of all genders with eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder. In addition to residential care, the Columbus location offers partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), and individual outpatient programs for adults and adolescents. The range of interventions includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), family-based treatment (FBT), nutrition rehabilitation and counseling, art and yoga therapies, and medical and psychiatric management.
