Eating Disorders Treated at Our Spokane Eating Disorder Clinic

At The Emily Program’s Spokane location, we understand that eating disorders can manifest in many different ways. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery, which is why we offer comprehensive, compassionate treatment for the full range of eating disorders and related issues.

  • Anorexia Nervosa: A severe fear of weight gain and pursuit of thinness through food restriction
  • Bulimia Nervosa: Characterized by secretive binge eating and purging behaviors and an extreme focus on weight and body shape
  • Binge Eating Disorder (BED): Frequent episodes of binge eating that are followed by feelings of self-disgust and are triggered by unpleasant emotions

Because all eating disorders manifest differently —  some with compulsive overeating, others with restriction or purging — The Emily Program offers specialized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs. With our compassionate Spokane team by your side, you can find lasting peace with food and your body. 


Components of our Spokane treatment program

In our group therapy sessions, you’ll participate in activities designed to build self-compassion, improve interpersonal skills, and develop lasting, healthy coping mechanisms. The collaborative nature of group therapy helps you see your struggles from different perspectives, offering wisdom and fostering a deeper understanding of your eating disorder.

Family Therapy:

At The Emily Program, family therapy is a cornerstone of our approach to eating disorder treatment. We believe in empowering families to take an active role in their loved one’s recovery, starting with education and support. Our family-based treatment (FBT) focuses on equipping families with the skills and knowledge to promote recovery at home, ensuring a supportive environment for lasting change.

You’ll engage in activities like meal planning, cooking sessions, and therapeutic meal exercises, all designed to help you regain a sense of normalcy and enjoyment around food and eating.

Additional Therapies:

The Emily Program continuously strives to integrate innovative therapies that cater to our clients’ diverse needs and preferences. Our treatment plans include therapeutic modalities that help unlock new paths to healing, including:
