Illinois is one of our top states for treatment center referrals. It also has a number of support groupsand additional resources. Individuals travel from across the country to take advantage of the high-quality treatment options available throughout Illinois, primarily the Chicago area.
A local recovery story is that of Illinois State University student Krista DeCeault. DeCeault was a star runner who led her team to victory until she had to take time off in 2011 to be hospitalized for anorexia nervosa. After a long battle, she came back to campus and now studies in the graduate dietetics program with plans to raise awareness for eating disorders among athletes.
