Announcing Residential Care for Adults in Columbus, OH

The Emily Program is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our services to meet the increasing need for adult residential programming in Ohio. Our new Columbus residential program will provide exceptional, individualized care to adults of all genders struggling with eating disorders.

“We’re thrilled to extend residential care to more individuals in Columbus,” says Site Director Jennifer Beck, LPCC-S. “Eating disorders are serious illnesses, but they are also highly treatable. Access to effective care at the appropriate level is crucial. Residential treatment isn’t widely available in the region, so we’re pleased to fulfill this critical need.”

Introducing Virtual Saturday Programming for Adolescents in Cleveland and Columbus

We are excited to have recently launched a Virtual Adolescent Saturday Program at our Cleveland and Columbus locations! This extension of our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs is designed for clients and families participating in intensive outpatient treatment at The Emily Program. The aim of Saturday programming is to increase support, provide psychoeducation, and give clients the opportunity to practice recovery skills in their own homes. 

Saturday programming, which takes place over a secure video connection, is a flexible option for clients who need to make up for missed program hours or require extra support. Our staff will recommend attending on Saturdays if clients and families miss a day of programming during the week, are stepping down from residential care, or may benefit from an additional day of treatment. The small-group format with a limit of 12 clients and families, facilitated by two staff members including at least one therapist, will provide personalized attention to those who need it most.

Staff Spotlight, Becca Clay

Tell us about yourself!

I’m Becca Clay, a therapist (Licensed Professional Counselor) at our Columbus Adolescent Residential site. I started at The Emily Program in January 2022 as part of the site’s opening team.

What does a typical day look like for you at The Emily Program?

There’s never a dull moment in residential care. My typical day includes individual and family therapy appointments, consultation with the treatment team and my colleagues, and tracking and documenting my clients’ progress. On any given day, I might also lead a group, meal coach, or case manage so my clients can appropriately continue care after they are discharged.

My name is Nicole, and I am a Behavioral Health Specialist (BHS) at The Emily Program’s Cleveland Outpatient location. I am currently assisting the adult standard IDP/PHP programs at this location until the young adult program begins. I have been with The Emily Program for a little over a year now. I started off as an Administrative Assistant before moving into this BHS role.

What do you like most about your job?

I love our clients and my co-workers/friends here! I always feel super supported in learning how to best serve clients and growing in my role as a BHS. I genuinely enjoy interacting with clients every day and am constantly learning new things from them!
