A recent study suggests that pre-teens who develop eating disorder symptoms may exhibit risk factors as younger children. Over the course of the six-year longitudinal study, researchers collected data on eating disorder symptoms, feelings of depression, and body satisfaction at ages seven, nine, and 12.
At The Emily Program, we offer a full continuum of care so we can meet the treatment needs of every person struggling with an eating disorder. We’re pleased announce that we have launched an adult intensive day program (IDP) in Woodbury. Our IDPs provide more services and support than basic outpatient programming, but are a step down from 24/7 residential treatment.
Recovery is possible and it happens in multiple ways. Come see for yourself. Our first 2017 Recovery Night will take place in St. Louis Park, MN on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 6:30 p.m. with an Emily Program staff member sharing her story.
New Year, New You? How about New Year, New View!
So it’s that time of year. The time when the marketing campaigns begin, telling us “this is the year” to make a change, lose weight, get fit, get healthy, change ourselves and turn over a new leaf. Hey, I am a big believer in change—it truly is the only constant—and some change and internal focus is needed to grow and expand as a human being. It can be positive, healthy and important. It can be helpful to step back and reflect on how things went during the previous year, what you want for next year and sketch out a plan of action on how to reach those goals.
We all lead busy lives, so the idea of fitting treatment into the mix might seem overwhelming.
