Eating Disorders And Other Mental Health Issues Often Present Together
Eating disorders often present with a second disorder, including substance use disorder, anxiety, trauma or depression, to name a few. We believe that simultaneously addressing both disorders in a dual diagnosis is the most effective approach for a lifetime of recovery.
At The Emily Program, our team of medical providers, therapists, dietitians, and psychiatrists brings decades of experience to addressing co-occurring disorders. We understand the complexity of dealing with multiple mental health issues.
We provide a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to healing that combines our evidence-based treatment with personalized care. Typically, dual diagnosis support at The Emily Program includes:
- Individual and group therapy
- 12-step facilitation (as needed)
- Nutritional rehabilitation, therapeutic meals, and snacks
- Medical and psychiatric services
- Art and yoga therapy
