A recent article in The New York Times, "Centers to Treat Eating Disorders are Growing, and Raising Concerns," discusses the rapid growth of residential eating disorder centers across the country, but questions their integrity and program effectiveness.
This confusion is a natural consequence of the attempts by so many to find more and better ways to help those who suffer from eating disorders. For most of the history of eating disorder treatment, there were no efforts made at prevention, involving families or outreach into the community. In fact, there was widespread unavailability of treatment options for most patients.
However, as the eating disorder treatment community matures and looks to expand access to treatment, we are seeing a lively and much-needed debate about how to get the best preventative care and treatment to patients.
Our 24/7 residential facility in Cleveland is officially open! Our staff have put in many, many months of hard work creating a warm, inviting environment for clients.

The Emily Program offers a full continuum of eating disorder care tailored specifically for male and female clients ages 10 - early 20s. From outpatient to 24/7 residential treatment, our staff can help young people learn skills to help them lead full, healthy lives. We offer a wide-spectrum of interventions, from Family-Based Treatment (FBT) to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT skills).
Our staff ensure that each person is provided the treatment that is best suited for their age and needs. A variety of programs are available at many of our locations.
At The Emily Program, our residential treatment is available for individuals of all ages, genders, and diagnoses. Our residential services purpose is simple: to care for clients when they come in, and give them enough tools so that when they step down to a lower level of care they can continue their recovery process.
Over the years we've grown, expanded programs, and transitioned our focus to stay current with evidence-based eating disorder treatment and insurance regulations. All while continuing to maintain and improve the personal experience individuals have while being treated within residential.
