Find Hope At The Emily Program

Eating disorders can disrupt families. Bewildering behaviors may mask your son or daughter’s inner turmoil, ranging from body image obsession to anxiety and depression. We know. Most of us have been there. At The Emily Program, we use the proven Maudsley Method, also known as Family-Based Treatment (FBT), in our personalized treatment programs for youth with eating disorders. Parents and family take an active role in the recovery journey. There is help. And hope. Call us now at 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977) or complete the form to schedule an eating disorder assessment for your son or daughter today.

How It Works At The Emily Program

An eating disorder assessment helps guide your son or daughter’s journey to recovery

After you contact us, one of our experienced admissions specialists talks with you and your child. We’ll explain our services, gather personal and insurance information, and schedule initial appointments for your child’s eating disorder assessment. This assessment helps us learn more about your child and your family, so that we can better understand what they are experiencing.

Together, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan

During the first meeting, one of our intake psychologists will explain the intake test results and recommend the right services for you at The Emily Program. Most of our programs for youth are based on the renowned Maudsley Approach, which recognizes that family involvement is essential on the road to recovery. If you’re ready to move forward, we’ll make appointments for your child to meet with a therapist, a dietitian, and other staff members on your treatment team. Remember, completing an intake does not commit you or your child to any additional treatment. It’s a simple, non-threatening way to learn more about leading a healthy, full life. We’re glad to share what we know with you.

We provide a full continuum of care

From outpatient to 24/7 residential services, The Emily Program offers a full range of personalized treatment options, including:

  • Adolescent Intensive Day Program (AIDP) provides seven hours of treatment Monday through Friday with daily therapeutic meals and snacks, therapy sessions, and time for tutoring and studying.
  • The Anna Westin House-Adolescent in a quiet neighborhood of St. Paul, MN, focuses exclusively on 24/7/365 treatment for youth with eating disorders.
  • Adolescent-Family Intensive (AFI) programming meets three or four days per week with supported meals and therapy sessions. Family members participate in groups and meals one evening a week, too.

In addition to our therapists, physicians, and dietitians, we work with community professionals who interact with your child, such as school personnel and healthcare providers.

You always have support

After you complete your intake appointment at The Emily Program, you’ll have access to the Office Manager at your service location who will be your primary resource and support for all care needs and questions. Your child’s individual therapist will be the ‘go to’ person for ongoing therapy support and will guide the treatment path. The Emily Program encourages you to join our Family & Friends Support Groups, too.
