This is one person’s story; everyone will have unique experiences on their own path to recovery and beyond. Some stories may mention eating disorder thoughts, behaviors or symptom use. Please use your own discretion. And speak with your therapist when needed.

How It Began
The word “diet” had infiltrated my being at a pre-teen age. For whatever reason, THIS was my Achilles heel in life – this was the thing that was going to reel me in again and again and unfurl all sorts of chaos, havoc and heartache.
To keep it short and simple, I spent years and decades trying to manage and control my food intake and construct my body to look and be a certain way. There was always this gnawing, annoying thing in the back of my head telling me I wasn’t enough, that I ate the wrong thing, that something bad was going to happen, and that I needed to work harder and do better.
At The Emily Program, we personalize each client’s care so they receive evidence-based treatment that matches the severity of their illness.
Determining the correct level of care ensures that our clients receive the most effective therapies for sustained recovery. Appropriate levels of care also decrease long-term health care costs associated with expensive but ineffective hospital stays that don’t address the core symptoms of eating disorders.
The Emily Program offers a wide array of treatment options for clients at all levels of care. Today, let’s take a closer look at our binge eating disorder (BED) intensive outpatient program (IOP). We sat down with Katelyn Burrows, BED IOP Program Coordinator in Cleveland, to learn more.
