Eating Disorders Treatment

An eating disorder is a potentially life-threatening, complex illness, often with underlying issues that need to be addressed in order to get well. There are several different types of eating disorders, each with serious consequences for health, productivity and relationships.

Getting Treatment

Eating disorders are treatable and there are a number of program options, working with different types of professionals ranging from mental health professionals to physicians to dietitians.

Treatment programs design plans for each individual and their specific needs, and vary from person to person; families are often involved in the recovery process. Check our resources for more information.
