CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Emily Program, a nationally recognized eating disorder treatment program and Cleveland Center for Eating Disorders, the premier eating disorder program in Northeast Ohio, are joining together to provide increased services for people with eating disorders in Ohio. The collaboration between the two programs will result in expanded outpatient services and a 16-bed residential treatment facility for adult males and females. The first of its kind in Northeast Ohio, this facility will provide more treatment options to those struggling with an eating disorder.
Mark Warren and Lucene Wisniewski, founders of CCED, will continue to lead the Cleveland programming and provide the same level of highly individualized and expert care, at all levels of treatment, for both adolescents and adults.
“We are extremely proud of our organization and the people in it,” said Warren. “We know partnering with The Emily Program will enable us to provide an even greater array of services to an even broader population here in Ohio. We are excited to partner with them and especially look forward to the opening of the first residential program here in Cleveland Heights.”

We are extremely grateful for this partnership.”
