The floors have been filled. A new transformer is on site. Rooms are taking shape, and walls are getting paint.
Renovation is well underway at The Emily Program – Columbus, the location of two new residential programs opening next year. Currently an outpatient and day treatment site, the Ravines Edge building will soon house adult and adolescent residential programs as well, bringing together a full continuum of care in one convenient spot. In addition to supporting continuity of care for clients transitioning between treatment levels, the location will expand treatment access for the estimated 390,000 Ohioans struggling with these illnesses.
This expansion project comes as we continue to witness the deep impact of the pandemic on people with eating disorders. Triggers exacerbated by social isolation, disrupted routines, and intensified stressors and anxiety have contributed to an ever-growing demand for eating disorder services—a need we’re committed to addressing in our local communities.
