The Comprehensive Care That Eating Disorder Treatment Requires

Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, compulsive overeating, or other eating disorders rarely occur without other physical and mental concerns. Eating disorders take a serious, often dangerous, toll on your body. For recovery to happen, your body’s organs and processes have to recover, too. It’s also not uncommon for individuals to experience accompanying mental health issues, such as chemical dependency, anxiety, depression, and trauma. That’s why The Emily Program's medical and psychiatry services team provides exceptional comprehensive medical and psychiatric care.
