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 treatment process. Remember, you won’t be alone.
Our caring and compassionate administrative staff 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’ll speak with one of our administrative staff and schedule an eating disorder assessment. You may also work with one of our client benefit coordinators to figure out what your insurance will cover or how services will be billed.
As a part of your assessment, one of our intake therapists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs and comfort level at this time. After you’ve completed the assessment, a client care coordinator will work with you to schedule appointments with an individual therapist, dietitian, and any other providers that were recommended as part of your treatment plan.
Your individual therapist will be your ‘go to’ person for ongoing 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.
