Referring a Patient

The Emily Program is a leader in personalized eating disorder treatment for people of all ages and genders. We help healthcare professionals recognize the signs and understand the symptoms. If you suspect an eating disorder, don’t wait. Talk to one of our professionals today at 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977) or send your patient to our online form to request an eating disorder assessment. We’re here to help.

Referrals and Direct Admissions

The Emily Program offers direct admission to help patients who need higher levels of care get into treatment fast. Direct admission is an option for out-of-state patients referred by healthcare professionals and for patients who are currently in a higher level of care and wish to transition from another treatment facility.

As part of the direct admission process, your patient will be connected with our Clinical Admissions Specialist, who will conduct a phone intake, determine level of care, schedule an admit date and start the process to secure medical data and arrange any necessary lodging.

When To Refer A Patient To The Emily Program

As with other mental and physical disorders, a healthcare professional must recognize the signs of a problem or potential problem, and then intervene effectively. If you suspect food, body image, weight, and/or eating issues, the American Academy of Family Physicians and American Psychiatric Association suggest that you act quickly.

Know the common eating disorder symptoms

Use the common symptoms list and simple assessment tool below. Our educational seminars also help your team screen for eating disorders, understand their effects, and access available treatment resources.

Eating disorders present physiologically and behaviorally. The multidisciplinary team at The Emily Program recommends checking for common symptoms, such as:

  • Dramatic weight gain or loss
  • Verbal preoccupation with food, weight, and shape
  • Medical complications, such as amenorrhea, bradycardia, unexpected osteopenia or osteoporosis, electrolyte abnormalities, low body temperature, orthostatic hypotension
  • Rapid or persistent decline or increase in food intake
  • Purging; restricting; binge eating; compulsive eating; compulsive exercising; abuse of diet pills, laxatives, diuretics, or emetics
  • Denial of food and eating problems, despite concerns of others
  • Eating in secret, hiding food, disrupting family meals, feeling out of control with food

Start the conversation

Ask if it is okay to discuss eating habits: “I’m concerned about your eating (or weight, body image, etc.). May we discuss how you typically eat and your relationship with food?”

Then ask your patient these 6 questions:

  1. Do you feel like you sometimes lose or have lost control over how you eat?
  2. Do you ever make yourself sick because you feel uncomfortably full?
  3. Do you believe yourself to be fat, even when others say you are too thin?
  4. Do food or thoughts about food dominate your life?
  5. Do thoughts about changing your body and/or your weight dominate your life?
  6. Have others become worried about your weight and/or eating?

Two or more "yes" answers strongly indicate the presence of disordered eating. (Adapted from SCOFF Questionnaire by Morgan, Reid & Lacy-BMJ, 1999.)

Talk with the experts at The Emily Program

The Emily Program staff is available to assist. Call us at 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977), use our online referral form, or send your patient to our website to request an eating disorder assessment.

Does Your Friend Have An Eating Disorder?

You see your friend differently than a family member does. That’s probably why you’re friends! But that also means you know when things aren’t quite right anymore. If you think your friend might have an eating disorder, you’ve come to the right place. The Emily Program works with people of all ages to make peace with food. Tell your friend to call us at (888) 364-5977 or show your friend our website. We’re here to help.

Three Ways To Help A Friend With An Eating Disorder

Take our Eating Disorder Assessment Quiz

Our Eating Disorder Assessment Quiz has just six questions. It’s a simple tool that helps you to see whether or not you should be concerned. Take the quiz.

Talk with your friend

Your friend’s health is more important than keeping secrets or shying away from talking to his or her family. Share your concerns. Be prepared to provide examples of behaviors that alerted you to the problem. And offer the next step—tell your friend to call us at 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977) or show your friend our website to start the journey to healthy living.
