Eating disorders affect families

When someone you care about struggles with food, the symptoms of the eating disorder touch everyone in the family. The perplexing behaviors can bring frustration, fear, and heartache. We know. Since 1993, The Emily Program has worked closely with families, friends, and other loved ones to help them cope with the consequences of eating disorders.

When your child struggles with an eating disorder

Our approach

Parents and families take an active role in the recovery journey. At The Emily Program, we use the proven Maudsley Method, also known as Family-Based Treatment (FBT), in our personalized treatment programs for children, adolescents, and young adults with eating disorders. 

Care that is right for your child

We offer a full continuum of care, including outpatient, intensive outpatient/partial hospitalization, and residential treatment, all of which provide daily therapeutic meals and snacks, therapy sessions, and time for schoolwork.

You always have our support

After you complete your intake appointment at The Emily Program, you’ll have access to the Office Manager at your programming site who will be your primary resource and support for all care needs and questions.
