Eating Disorder Recovery Tools & Support
Eating Disorder Hope has put together a number of resources that complement getting professional help for eating disorders and can provide support for you and your loved ones.
Eating Disorder Support Groups
Eating Disorder Support Groups exist to provide women and men various types of help related to eating disorders. The help and support provided in these groups may consist of relevant information about eating disorders, relating personal experiences, forming social networks, and listening to and receiving others experiences. Two main types of eating disorder support groups are self-help support groups or therapist led support groups. Eating disorder support groups are a tangible way to share thoughts and feelings with other people who can understand and relate to what you might be going through. Support groups can be an invaluable component of successful eating disorder treatment.
Eating Disorder Recovery Tips and Self-Help
The journey of recovery is a continuous process and there is a lot you can do to help yourself outside of the therapist’s office or within a treatment program. Because the process of recovering from an eating disorder is often strenuous, it is critical to develop effectual self-help skills. Learning how to cope in positive ways and efficiently manage your emotions will be valuable tools in maintaining your recovery. At Eating Disorder Hope, we recognize the importance of having the ability to self-help, so we have complied resources that will encourage you to grow in this area.
