In the fall of 2014, Mandy Gross joined The Emily Program as an intern. Soon after Cleveland Residential opened in 2015, she accepted a full-time position as an eating disorder technician at the house.
“I knew long before working for TEP that I wanted to become a therapist and work with people suffering from eating disorders,” she said. “So, I was very hopeful that my internship would lead to my dream job, and lucky for me, it did.”

The Emily Program provides treatment at multiple levels of care, from outpatient programs to around-the-clock residential care.
At The Emily Program, we personalize each client’s care so they receive evidence-based treatment that matches the severity of their illness.
Determining the correct level of care ensures that our clients receive the most effective therapies for sustained recovery. Appropriate levels of care also decrease long-term health care costs associated with expensive but ineffective hospital stays that don’t address the core symptoms of eating disorders.

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.
