How It Works

One of the most difficult steps toward recovery is your first phone call to The Emily Program. Once you make the decision to contact us, we’ll walk with you through every step of the eating disorder assessment and eating disorder treatment process. Remember, you won’t be alone.

Our caring and compassionate client services team will help you set up your first appointments, assist you with any questions you may have regarding your insurance coverage and paying for services, and make sure that all your questions are answered so that you feel comfortable beginning your journey toward recovery with us.

So, you may be wondering, “How does this whole thing work?”.

The first step in receiving support requires that you contact us. We know this can be extremely difficult and may feel overwhelming. We’re here for you. 

When you call, you will work with an intake team member. They'll explain our services, gather personal and insurance information, and schedule initial appointments. The first thing they will help with is scheduling an eating disorder assessment

As a part of your assessment, you'll meet with one of our intake psychologists. This person will facilitate the initial intake appointments and work with you to create a plan of care based on mutual goals. This plan will help guide your personalized treatment -- we'll provide recommendations about which services would be most appropriate for you and if you choose to continue, we'll begin setting up appointments for you to meet with a therapist, a dietitian, and other staff who will be part of your treatment team. Please know that completing an intake does not commit you to any additional treatment. Our goal is to help you lead a healthy, full life. Completing an intake allows us an opportunity to present you with all the information we can so you can make an educated decision about your care and how to move forward toward recovery.

Upon completion of  your intake appointments at The Emily Program, you'll have access to the Office Manager who will be your primary resource and support for all care needs and questions.

Your individual therapist will be your ‘go to’ person for ongoing therapy support. You may meet twice a week or once a month depending on where you are on your recovery journey. Your therapist is also your guide if you become interested in participating in any of our outpatient groups

We hope that you will consider these options and reach out for the help that you deserve. Contact us when you’re ready to start on your path to recovery.

There’s help. There’s hope. We are here when you’re ready.
