Eating Disorders Treated at Our Minnesota Locations
The Emily Program provides comprehensive and specialized treatment options for various eating disorders and related mental health conditions.
In the case of anorexia nervosa, individuals often experience a significant fear of weight gain, coupled with a distorted body image, often leading to critical malnutrition.
Bulimia nervosa is another disorder for which The Emily Program offers treatment. Bulimia is characterized by episodes of excessive food consumption followed by compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting or excessive physical activity to avoid weight gain.
The Emily Program also treats binge eating disorder, a condition marked by episodes of excessive food intake and a loss of control, often triggered as a response to negative emotions.
Compulsive overeating is another focus area, where the individual exhibits repeated episodes of excessive food intake that are not necessarily tied to physical hunger, which may result in weight gain and related health implications.
The Emily Program also provides treatment for conditions like OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder) and ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder).
