Related Mental Health Issues

The Emily Program helps individuals of all genders struggling with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and other mental health and body image issues, including substance use disorders. Our compassionate, experienced staff provides a dual focus to provide personalized treatment that leads to full, healthful living.

Eating Disorders And Other Mental Health Issues Often Present Together

Eating disorders often present with a second disorder, including substance use disorder, anxiety, trauma or depression, to name a few. We believe that simultaneously treating both disorders in a dual diagnosis is the most effective approach for a lifetime of recovery.

At The Emily Program, our team of medical providers, therapists, dietitians, and psychiatrists brings decades of experience to the treatment of co-occurring disorders. We understand the complexity of dealing with multiple mental health issues.

We provide a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to healing that combines our evidence-based treatment with personalized care. Typically, dual diagnosis treatment at The Emily Program includes:


  • Individual and group therapy
  • 12-step facilitation (as needed)
  • Nutritional rehabilitation, therapeutic meals, and snacks
  • Medical and psychiatric services
  • Art and yoga therapy

For a more structured recovery plan for those struggling with an eating disorder and a substance use disorder, we offer Eating Disorder/Substance Use Disorder (ED/SUD) integrated intensive programs in Minnesota.
