New Eating Disorder Service Available to Empire Members
Empire members suffering from eating disorders have a new treatment option available to help support transitions of care and to prevent relapse. Eating Disorder Recovery Specialists (EDRS), a Manhattan-based organization, is now providing in-home, on-campus, and community-based eating disorder treatment to Empire members.
Most patients with eating disorders do well while in structured treatment, yet many struggle with eating at home and in the community. EDRS provides meal coaching and other therapeutic support, to ensure that treatment gains are maintained in the member’s usual environment, which can prevent the need for multiple treatment episodes.
EDRS’s services are available statewide, and can be accessed by calling 866-525-2766 or at www.edrs.com.
