If you've ever received any treatment, whether Inpatient, Outpatient, PHP, IOP or other, please take a few minutes to leave a review of your experience.

 

EDHelpNow is bringing more transparency to the process to help people make informed decisions about the treatment they believe will be most valuable for themselves. Hearing about the experience of others can help someone choose one professional over another. Think of it as the Yelp for Eating Disorder professionals. Just a few minutes of your time will help hundreds of others.

 

Visit edhelpnow.com and search for the doctor or center you visited, and then click "write review".

 

If you don't see your treatment professional listed, please email [email protected] - this will help grow the directory. They are also currently lacking more professionals outside the US so please feel free to request any additions regardless of geographic location.

God it’s all so fucking embarrassing.
You take a step back and see just how hard you’re “trying” - at anything at all really, anything - and it’s so terribly pathetic.
Goddamn what a frighteningly mortifying existence.
Take note because you’re part of it."

 

 

 

But above all else....this, too, shall pass.

For me, it says there is nothing at the place I'm currently being treated. Sadly I think this may only work for bigger countries.

Also, very few people from where I live will ever find that site so it seems to be a lot of work for little to no gain.

I love this!!!

Would've been perfect for when I went to treatment, but I've been to two places - one not so good and one AMAZING.

Doing this now!


(P.s. if you're thinking about treatment, go for it. It's worth it. You're worth it! I promise :) ♡)

I'm so glad to post some experience here!
I went to a treatment center in Kenner, Louisiana, which is one of the surrounding towns lumped in with New Orleans. It was called River Oaks. At the time, I was diagnosed with moderate Bulimia. I didn't want to recover, I wanted to stop binging and purging. I've been overeating and binging my whole life, since I was a kid.. I started regularly purging in October 2014. I got down to my lowest adult weight of 152 (by highest weight with BED was 300lbs) and plateaued. I blamed my binging and wanted to stop, but didn't want to stop restricting. The treatment center was amazing.. one of the best in the US from what I've heard. If I had really wanted to recover, I would've succeeded with flying colors because of the tools that treatment gave me. When I left, I regularly saw a therapist named Lisa Oliver, once or twice a week, and saw a dietician named Daphne Olivier once a week. I lied the whole time and continued restricting, so it wasn't long before my binging and purging started again. But, when I went to treatment it had gotten to twice a day. Now, it's a few times a week. That's not ideal, but I use a lot of tools from treatment still. I wouldn't take my time there back just cause I'm still trapped here. It was there that I really discovered Brain Over Binge, and those are a lot of the tool I still use. The only downside is the cost.. without my amazing insurance, it would've been $60,000 and I ended up paying about $5000. It's put me in further debt than I already was, but I still wouldn't take it back.

I hope that, if you really want to recover, you'll find a place for you. I've seen recovery and it's beautiful. I'm just not there yet. I have hope that it's possible, I just sometimes doubt I'll ever want it. I'm keeping you all in my thoughts:)

I was in canyon ridge in southern california for suicide but they knew about my bulimia. They never did shit about it. I would binge on all the snacks in the common room after dinner (but i didn't really eat dinner) and then purge. I had a hard time with things because I was constipated and they wouldn't give me anything to fix it really. Like I got one laxative and that was it. Like naw, that aint gonna work, I need, like, 5 more. So I would binge to try and shit. To be fair, they are not primarily for eating disorders.

I've only been treated for anorexia. I was in several centers as a minor, but sadly, didn't really get treatment. People only wanted to see weight gain. I never got any intensive therapy addressing my ED- just sandwiches thrown at me.

I was a minor then.

 

Now that I am an adult, I'm bulimic, as a result of how my anorexia was handled. I feel that I'm too busy with adult life to seek treatment and even if I did, I don't feel "sick" enough because I'm a normal weight.

 

I think about treatment every now and then..but am convinced it won't work.

Not a treatment center, but there's a dental practice in Houston that specializes in eating disorders. I took way too long to get to a dentist and only went to them because I saw that the owner/main dentist is very involved in the ed-community. I never felt judged there. I only felt compassion (and maybe some mouth pain, hahaha). They're kind of pricey because of the area they're in, but are truly wonderful. They helped me get my smile back and I will forever be grateful for that. They're called Houston Uptown Dentists.
