When the Lyrics Quieted the Noise

    This is one person's story; everyone will have unique experiences on their own path to recovery and beyond. Some stories may mention eating disorder thoughts, behaviors or symptom use. Please use your own discretion. And speak with your therapist when needed.

    by Nicole, a former Emily Program client

    As I have grown up and entered the new chapter in my life that has begun my years as a young adult, I have had many obstacles thrown my way before reaching the age of 21. I am happy to say that I am living a happy, healthy, productive, and recovering life in my house up north with my mom and dad. However, it took many years of therapy, medication adjustments, and support from my loved ones to get to where I am today. Things weren’t always promising for me.

    The harsh reality of eating disorder mortality rates

    Eating disorders kill. This is a harsh reality. Our clients are reminded about this fact from their loved ones, doctors and therapists. Yet, many of our clients believe that it will be someone else who dies and not them.

    Eating disorders impact about 30 million people in the United States. They are associated with high levels of premature mortality, including an increased risk for suicide. Without treatment, up to 20 percent of people with a serious eating disorder will die. These are sobering statistics.

Eating Disorders are Tough. Let's End the Stigma.

    By Mark Warren, MD

    I have often wondered why there are so many stigmas around eating disorders. People tend to engage in eating disordered behaviors, whether it's bingeing, purging, compulsive exercise or significant food restriction, when they are alone. There is something so profound about this disease that behaviors can only be done in secret.

  • photo of the human brain 685x379

    In the last 10 years, the notion that eating disorders are biologically based illnesses has begun to gain significant traction both inside and outside the eating disorder community.

    Following "The Decade of the Brain" in the '90s and the explosion of research in brain chemistry, anatomy and function, we now better understand how we are susceptible to eating disorders based on a pre-existing neurological status and how our personalities, behaviors and experiences in eating disorders are all linked.

Day Treatment vs. IOP – What’s the difference?

September 15, 2015. Written by Mark Warren, M.D.
  • Like many other eating disorder facilities, The Emily Program offers multiple levels of care for adolescents and adults. What makes The Emily Program different is that our services are based in outpatient treatment. As The Emily Program founder Dirk Miller says, "We didn't start as an inpatient program and develop outpatient services to support that model. The reason is pretty simple: most change occurs as an outpatient. We live our lives as 'outpatients.' Ultimately we must apply what's learned to a life of recovery that we live outside the treatment program."
