The Emily Program means freedom from a life-long obsession for me. For most of my life, I thought more about eating or not eating than anything else, and I couldn't stop. When my problem got so bad--difficulty functioning at work and in my relationships--I turned to The Emily Program. After a year in treatment, I can honestly say that I am free. Food is just food and I am able to live for the first time in many years.

The Emily Program Residential Opens in Ohio in Early 2015

The Emily Program - Residential in Cleveland Heights OH The Emily Program - Residential will open in Cleveland Heights, OH early next year.  


The 16-bed licensed residential care facility is the first of its kind in Northeastern Ohio. We'll offer those struggling with eating disorders comprehensive solutions - combining evidence-based treatment, personalized holistic care, and a highly individualized treatment plan. 


Each plan typically includes:

  • Individual, group and family programming
  • Nutritional rehabilitation; therapeutic meals and snacks
  • Medical and psychiatric services
  • Chemical dependency and trauma programming as needed
  • Integrative therapies such as art, yoga, massage, movement and recreational therapy

private place to stay. At our beautiful residential location, we'll welcome males and females, 18-plus. Residents will gain skills for healthy living with guidance from a team of therapists, dietitians and professional medical staff in a 24/7 medically supervised environment. 


When clients are ready to transition out of residential care, we stay with them every step of the way. We also work with community professionals to ensure appropriate aftercare.

The Emily Program Opens its Fourth Lodging Facility in Spokane, WA

Partial plus Lodging at The Emily Program in WA and MN

We opened the doors to our fourth lodging facility, Lilac Lodging, in Spokane, WA in late October. 


The fourth facility of its kind, Partial plus Lodging is a great option for adult women who do not live within driving distance to eating disorder treatment. 


At The Emily Program, we believe that treatment should be accessible. With Lodging options in Minneapolis, MN, St. Paul, MN, Seattle, WA, and Spokane, WA, individuals can get the intensive treatment they need while staying in a comfortable, homelike setting.


Partial plus Lodging provides guests a place to:  

  • Practice real-life recovery skills in peer-supported, non-therapeutic setting
  • Enjoy a safe, charming residential area near public transportation, restaurants and shopping
  • Reflect and rest in quiet, semi-private rooms

We pride ourselves on making this option as accessible as possible so that clients may continue their step up/step down in recovery here at The Emily Program. For more information or to refer a client, contact our Lodging Manager toll-free at (888) EMILY-77 (888-364-5977) ext. 2220 or visit
