The Emily Program’s Approach to Eating Disorder Treatment in North Carolina

At The Emily Program’s treatment centers in North Carolina, we recognize that the decision to seek help for an eating disorder—whether for yourself or a loved one—is a profoundly personal and courageous step. We are here to support you through this journey with empathy, understanding, and specialized expertise.

Our Durham and Charlotte locations offer a comprehensive spectrum of care including inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), outpatient services (OP), and virtual treatment options. This breadth of services ensures your needs are met at any stage of recovery, whether you need intensive, around-the-clock care or flexible support that accommodates living at home.

Our treatment philosophy is built on a multidisciplinary approach that brings together a team of experienced medical professionals, psychiatric providers, licensed therapists, and registered dietitians. This team collaborates closely to create a custom treatment plan that addresses every aspect of your illness–medical, psychological, and nutritional. By incorporating proven therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and family-based treatment (FBT), and complementing them with integrative practices like yoga and expressive arts, we ensure a holistic recovery path that not only addresses symptoms but also the root cause of your eating disorder. 

At our North Carolina treatment centers, we know that making peace with food is essential for long-term recovery. Our registered dietitians work closely with clients to develop personalized, nourishing meal plans and provide real-time support during meals to help them practice new food skills and manage food-related anxieties.

The Emily Program fosters an inclusive environment where individuals of all genders, ages, and backgrounds can feel safe and valued. We are committed to making your path to recovery as smooth as possible, assisting with insurance and logistical considerations so that you can focus fully on your healing.

Choosing The Emily Program means embarking on a path of compassionate, evidence-based care that respects your individuality. Whether you are stepping into one of our North Carolina treatment centers for the first time or transitioning between levels of care, our team is dedicated to providing unwavering support to ensure a lasting recovery.

Eating Disorders Treated at our North Carolina Locations

The Emily Program personalizes treatment to address each individual’s needs, circumstances, and symptoms. This comprehensive approach tackles not just the disorder itself, but also any co-occurring conditions that may be contributing to or complicating it.

  • Anorexia Nervosa: Characterized by self-starvation due to an intense fear of gaining weight, despite being clinically underweight
  • Bulimia Nervosa: Defined by cycles of binge eating and subsequent compensatory behaviors like restriction, excessive exercise, or self-induced vomiting

The Emily Program recognizes that eating disorders manifest in various ways, encompassing not just restrictive eating but also disordered behaviors like compulsive overeating. This deep understanding of the entire spectrum allows our compassionate, multidisciplinary team to tailor treatment plans specifically to your unique recovery journey.
