We’re Moving into a New Outpatient Location in Cleveland!
We’re excited to share that our Cleveland Outpatient services will move to a new building beginning Monday, May 13th. The new space was thoughtfully designed with all the amenities necessary to offer the best care for our clients. The Emily Program – Cleveland will continue to offer all the same services, just in a newly updated space.
On Tuesday, we hosted an open house event to celebrate the move and welcome community members, local professionals, and Emily Program team members into the space. Staff offered site tours and talked to guests about the services offered in the new location.
Staff Spotlight: Mandy Gross, Program Coordinator
In the fall of 2014, Mandy Gross joined The Emily Program as an intern. Soon after Cleveland Residential opened in 2015, she accepted a full-time position as an eating disorder technician at the house.
“I knew long before working for TEP that I wanted to become a therapist and work with people suffering from eating disorders,” she said. “So, I was very hopeful that my internship would lead to my dream job and lucky for me, it did.”
Lodging Options Expand in Cleveland
We opened a new Partial Plus Lodging location in Cleveland, Ohio today! The Vue, our lodging accommodation in Cleveland, has a new apartment for clients participating in our Intensive Day Programs.
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.
When Does a Client Need a Higher Level of Care?
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 healthcare costs associated with expensive but ineffective hospital stays that don’t address the core symptoms of eating disorders.
