Monthly Anorexia Support Groups are now available!
Join us the 1st Wednesday of every month at 12noon PST / 3pm EST for support & encouragement in our free therapist led support group!
Anorexia Nervosa is a debilitating physical and psychological disorder that greatly hinders the quality of life of those who struggle with this form of disordered eating. One hallmark of anorexia nervosa is a tendency to isolate and withdraw from relationships and social encounters. To learn more about this eating disorder you can visit our Anorexia Treatment and Info page.
Joining a support group that offers acceptance and encouragement can help to break the cycle of isolation that many individuals struggling with this disorder deal with. Hope you will attend one of our groups!
