  • Multidisciplinary treatment team series registered dietitian

    Eating disorders are neurobiological illnesses that have both psychological and physical manifestations. They are complex and require comprehensive treatment teams to greatly increase a client’s chance of success.

    That’s why The Emily Program employs a multidisciplinary team of eating disorder specialists to deliver optimal care to every client.
