Someone you know is battling an eating disorder. It could be your mother, father, daughter, son, neighbor, friend, colleague. Or you. Nearly 10 million women and one million men in the United States suffer from anorexia and bulimia; many millions more from binge eating disorder, disordered eating, body dissatisfaction, and weight concerns.
You may be unaware of the personal yet profound struggle that haunts these individuals daily. On the outside they may appear successful, happy and leading a rewarding life. But as the cliché admonishes, looks can be deceiving. Early detection, intervention and treatment are essential for successful treatment and full recovery. EDRC is here to help guide you and your loved ones through the recovery process.
