Helpful Information, Advice, & Resources

  • Free & Low Cost Support Options: Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. These free and low cost support options offer ways to connect with others and provide tools to promote recovery.

    Please note that these options do not replace professional treatment. We are listing them as additional support options to supplement recovery or maintenance.

    • Questions to Ask Treatment Providers: It is important that people with eating disorders seek professional help. There are many differing approaches to treatment and no one-size-fits-all approach. Since there isn’t a single approach that is considered superior for everyone, it is important to find the option that works for you. Coming prepared with a list of questions to ask a potential provider can help you make that choice.
