Compassionate Eating Disorder and Substance Use Disorder Care
We understand that eating disorders often occur alongside struggles with alcohol and drugs. This type of co-occurring condition may exist because eating disorders and substance use disorders have a complex, intertwined relationship involving the “reward center” of the brain. If left untreated, these disorders can cause significant ongoing problems and prevent you from recovering fully. At The Emily Program, we address eating disorders and substance use disorders at the same time so you can find your way back to a healthy life. Schedule an assessment or call 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977) today.
