THE EMILY PROGRAM

The Emily Program approach is based on the belief that individuals are unique and that they intuitively seek meaning, value, and creativity in life. Effective treatment requires an awareness of the genetic, biological, psychological, social, and cultural impacts on each person. Simply put, we believe that treatment with you in mind can help you get better.
