Outpatient & Day Treatment for Adolescents and Adults

The Emily Program’s Cleveland eating disorder clinic is renowned for its compassionate and tailored approach to addressing the intricate challenges that come with eating disorders. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), along with outpatient services and our IOP program in Cleveland, Ohio are essential pillars of our therapeutic offerings, specifically designed to meet the individual needs of each patient.

Our IOP program in Cleveland integrates proven therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with nutrition counseling, group therapy, and other supportive activities. This comprehensive approach ensures a holistic treatment experience, tackling not just the physical symptoms but also the mental, emotional, and behavioral aspects of eating disorders.

At our Cleveland eating disorder clinic, we strongly advocate for early intervention and specialized treatment as crucial steps in eating disorder recovery. We invite you to take our self-assessment quiz, which can be an initial step in determining if it’s the right time to seek professional help. We are always here, ready to offer the expertise, care, and support you need on your journey to recovery.

When you feel ready, you can contact us directly at 1-888-364-5977 to schedule an assessment. We are committed to standing by your side, delivering the highest quality of care, and helping you regain control of your life from the clutches of an eating disorder.

Our CARF International accreditation demonstrates our program’s quality, transparency, and commitment to the satisfaction of the persons served.

Eating Disorders Treated at Our Cleveland Eating Disorder Clinic

At The Emily Program’s Cleveland eating disorder outpatient clinic, we know that every journey with food and body image is unique. With a broad range of customized care options, we build personalized treatment plans that address the specific needs of those struggling with eating disorders of all types. 

  • Anorexia Nervosa: Marked by an overwhelming fear of gaining weight and a distorted body image, leading individuals to significantly restrict their food intake.
  • Bulimia Nervosa: Characterized by cycles of binge eating and purging behaviors, often done in intense secrecy and in response to emotional triggers
  • Binge Eating Disorder (BED): Defined by recurrent episodes of eating unusually large  amounts of food, a sense of a lack of control, and feelings of guilt and shame

At The Emily Program’s Cleveland locations, we also treat disordered eating patterns like compulsive overeating, often seen in bulimia, binge eating disorder, and OSFED. Our care decisions are based on your individual situation—by tailoring treatment to you, we ensure comprehensive care that targets your specific behaviors and helps you reach all of your recovery goals.

Nutrition Therapy:

The Emily Program’s experienced dietitians provide tailored nutrition counseling, education, and meal planning. This comprehensive support disrupts disordered eating patterns, restores health, and rebuilds trust in your body’s cues. You’ll learn to challenge the distorted messages from diet culture and your eating disorder, helping you build a peaceful relationship with food.

Medical Care:

Eating disorders often result in physical complications like fatigue, electrolyte imbalances, and indigestion. At our Cleveland outpatient center, our dedicated medical team is available to provide you with medical care if necessary, managing any health issues as you focus on your recovery.

Psychiatric Care:

Recognizing that conditions like depression, substance use disorder, PTSD, and anxiety must be treated along with your eating disorder is crucial for lasting recovery. Our team of psychiatrists is here to help manage these co-occurring conditions, including with medication support if necessary.

Experiential Activities:

Partial hospitalization/intensive day (PHP/IDP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) at The Emily Program include practical activities like cooking, grocery shopping, and dining at restaurants. These experiences help you use the coping strategies you’ve learned in treatment in real-world scenarios.

Education/Schooling:

At The Emily Program, you don’t have to choose between your child’s education and their health and well-being. We include a study hall for adolescents in our PHP/IDP, ensuring they can focus on healing while maintaining their educational progress.

Additional Therapies:

Our program integrates additional methods beyond typical therapy, aiding your recovery by helping you process your emotions and express yourself. These additional therapies include:

  • Expressive Arts: Creating art in treatment and recovery can help manage your anxiety, aid in resolving body image issues, and foster healthier coping techniques. Expressive arts also serve as a non-verbal way for you to safely express, explore, and reflect, aiding in your overall emotional well-being.
  • Movement Therapy: Our Cleveland Outpatient treatment center offers movement therapy, including yoga, stretching, and strength work. These activities can help you improve your mind and body connection and provide a healthy means to handle stress, both of which are essential parts of recovery.
