Family-Based Therapy (FBT), also known as the Maudsley method or Maudsley approach, is widely considered the treatment of choice for adolescents with eating disorders. Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of FBT, and indeed, at The Emily Program, we have found that adolescent clients who participate in FBT have the best outcomes of any treatment modality we utilize for this age group.
FBT is based on the understanding that families know their children better than anyone else and is anchored by the idea that parents are often fully capable of feeding their children. In the FBT model, parents have control of their child’s weight restoration and are actively involved in their child’s recovery process. The role of the professional is to support the family as they work toward restoring their child’s health.
We understand that taking the first step to starting eating disorder treatment is huge. Many of our staff have been there, too. We know that making the first call to The Emily Program can be stressful and scary, which is why we aim to make it as easy as possible. Our admissions line (1-888-364-5977) is open 7 days a week and staffed with admissions specialists who can help start you on the road to recovery.
The Emily Program has a new group therapy option for Minnesota adolescents! This new group, “Recovery Club,” is open to clients aged 10 to 18 who are receiving outpatient care at our St. Paul, East Metro, and St. Louis Park, Minnesota sites. The one-hour session takes place every Tuesday afternoon via telehealth and will ultimately be held in person in St. Louis Park.
The Emily Program is built on hope.
Hope whispers in a client’s first phone call, its hum beneath any fear or shame. It sets a client on a path of healing, a journey accompanied by others who then help hold that hope. It anchors all of us in a shared commitment to eating disorder treatment and recovery.
And hope keeps us together in uncertain, challenging times.
We’re pleased to share that The Emily Program now offers intensive eating disorder treatment (IOP and IDP/PHP) via telehealth. Telehealth services will allow you to access eating disorder care from your own home so that you can stay on the path to recovery.
Telehealth uses technology to deliver care virtually. It allows you to connect to your treatment team by video in order to receive the structured support you would typically receive in person.
