When Does a Client Need a Higher Level of Care?

July 19, 2017.
  •  Determining Levels 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 health care costs associated with expensive but ineffective hospital stays that don’t address the core symptoms of eating disorders.

    By Christy Zender, MSW, LICSW

    One of the most important elements of your treatment will be having a "good fit" with your provider(s). While "good fit" can mean a lot of things, we feel the most important element of fit is having a good level of comfort with your provider. We frequently talk about uncomfortable and difficult things in treatment so it is important you feel heard and responded to by your provider. All people have different communication styles so it is important that you talk openly about what is and what is not working for you.

Day Treatment vs. IOP – What’s the difference?

September 15, 2015. Written by Mark Warren, M.D.
  • Like many other eating disorder facilities, The Emily Program offers multiple levels of care for adolescents and adults. What makes The Emily Program different is that our services are based in outpatient treatment. As The Emily Program founder Dirk Miller says, "We didn't start as an inpatient program and develop outpatient services to support that model. The reason is pretty simple: most change occurs as an outpatient. We live our lives as 'outpatients.' Ultimately we must apply what's learned to a life of recovery that we live outside the treatment program."

What does it mean if a program says they "do Dialectical Behavioral Therapy"?

    By Drs Lucene Wisniewski and Mark Warren

    Over the last 15 years Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) has gone from being virtually unknown to being a term utilized by many treatment programs. DBT is an evidence based therapy, initially designed for Borderline Personality Disorder, and more lately for other diagnoses including eating disorders (Wisniewski, L., Safer, D., & Chen, E.Y., 2007). With its increase in popularity among treatment providers it is important to be clear about what it means to "do DBT" so an individual knows if they're receiving evidence based care.

    Comprehensive DBT treatment, initially described by Marsha Linehan, has four components: Individual therapy, skills group, 7 day week phone consultation availability, and consultation team for therapists known as "therapy for therapists". Unless all four of these components are present, a program is not providing comprehensive DBT treatment. Additionally, in order for a therapist to be capable of providing DBT, a significant training process is generally required. This training process necessitates a therapist taking a non-judgmental stance, the ability to encourage motivation and commitment with their client, extensive knowledge and understanding of the DBT skills and therapeutic techniques, and the balance of accepting where a client is while moving them towards change.

4 Reasons Why You May Not Be Getting Evidenced Based Care

August 31, 2012. Written by Mark Warren, M.D.
  • Re-posted from Cleveland Center for Eating Disorders (CCED) blog archives. CCED and The Emily Program partnered in 2014.

    By Dr. Mark Warren

    Every year our understanding of the brain and eating disorders improves. However, there are still a limited number of truly evidence based treatment for our patients. The search for evidence based care may feel overwhelming and sometimes futile. Unfortunately, moving in the direction of care that is not evidence based reduces the likelihood that clients will achieve recovery. There are several reasons why providers may offer care not based on the literature or published data:
