Eating disorders informational meeting

A free informational meeting about eating disorders is held each Wednesday afternoon from 4:30 to 5:15 at Providence Eating Disorders Treatment Program. Any interested individual or family member may attend. Clinicians answer questions about treatment and recovery, and they discuss levels of care in this and other community settings.

For more than 25 years, Providence Adult  Eating Disorders Treatment Program has helped patients recover from anorexia, bulimia and atypical eating disorders. Our treatment process begins with a thorough clinical assessment to address current and past eating practices and the physical and emotional consequences of these practices. This includes the evaluation of symptoms, such as depression, anxiety and substance use, as well as lifestyle factors, such as social support from family and friends. As patients approach or re-approach treatment, their readiness and the timing of treatment are also considered.  Recovery is a process that requires persistence, courage and effective treatment resources.
