Eating Disorders Awareness Week may be ending, but the fight for overcoming Eating Disorders will continue. If you have a loved one who is struggling with an Eating Disorder, voice your concern, and gather all the resources you can in order to help them seek professional help. Contact the Special Programs team at the Ben Gordon Center at 815-756-4875.
The Special Programs team would like to thank you for your support of Eating Disorder Awareness! We appreciate the stories we’ve heard this week of clients who have opened up about their concerns with food and body image, after seeing the Eating Disorders table.
“No one can make you get better.
The battle for recovery is not between you and me.
It’s not between your ED and anyone else.
The battle you have to fight to get better is inside of you.
The battle you have to fight is between your healthy self and your eating disorder self.”
