Some of the benefits to residential treatment are:
Level of care matches severity of illness: Our 24/7 medically supervised environment and intensive behavioral program promotes medical stability and psychological and nutritional skill development necessary to match the severity of the illness
Improves core eating disorder symptoms: Treatment results in weight normalization, reduced eating disorder pathology, improved self-esteem, and improved quality of life
Optimizes support system: Comprehensive involvement of family and friends develops support system to optimally support resident as they step down from residential care
Promotes recovery: Equips clients with improved functionality, skills, and quality of life to continue recovery in lower levels of care and within their support system
Lower total cost of care: Appropriate care decreases health care costs by approximately 30% compared to individuals in need of, but unable to access, residential care and avoids ineffective, high cost hospitalizations with limited efficacy in addressing eating disorder core symptoms
Gives hope: The Emily Program has exceptional patient satisfaction with 95% of patients and families saying they would recommend The Emily Program to others
For many people, the journey to recovery begins with a safe, private place to stay. We provide authentic, individualized care to adults of all genders at our 16-bed Seattle - Residential facility.
