Stephanie’s Recovery Story

Stephanie Maiwurm

Stephanie Maiwurm, a former Emily Program client, shares her story of recovery and healing.

Stephanie attended the Emily Program in 2010 and 2011 and she is grateful she was exposed to ways of eating normally, working out normally, and having balance in her life. Today, Stephanie says she no longer associates her wellbeing, love, and care for herself based on what her body looks like. She chooses to honor herself, her physical body, and her spiritual and energetic body.

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, we hope Stephanie’s story finds you. By having the courage to reach out and get support, eating disorder recovery is possible. At The Emily Program, we create personalized treatment plans and walk alongside you during your recovery journey. If you are ready to make a change, you can call us at 1-888-364-5977 or complete our online form.

The Emily Program is a national leader in eating disorder treatment. We believe that individuals are unique and that effective eating disorder treatment requires an awareness of the genetic, biological, psychological, social, and cultural impacts on each person. With this integrative approach in mind, we help our clients recover from all types of eating disorders.

The Emily Program offers a full continuum of care. We offer residential treatment, day treatment, and outpatient treatment options in MN, OH, PA, and WA. If you are unsure if you are struggling with disordered eating, you can take our online quiz to learn more. If you have an eating disorder and are looking to speak with someone about treatment options, contact our admissions team at 1-888-364-5977.

At The Emily Program, we know that one of the greatest barriers to treatment is a lack of information. In order to eliminate one hurdle, we filmed virtual tours of our Emily Program locations. An example tour from our Cleveland location is below. We hope this video helps folks to feel at home with The Emily Program and more comfortable pursuing treatment.
