Are online support groups effective for eating disorder recovery?

This is dependent on the patient's needs. Support groups can be great by themselves and even more advantageous in conjunction with 1:1 sessions. We recommend discussing this with your dietitian on what may best fit your needs.

Support Group

Does insurance cover online support groups for eating disorders?

This varies based on your specific insurance plan. Currently, our groups are private pay at a very discounted rate.

What is the goal of online support groups for people with anorexia, bulimia, BED, orthorexia, disordered eating, and other eating disorders?

For diseases so rooted in shame, regulated groups -- ones that are mediated by registered dietitian nutritionists using evidence-based information -- can provide many benefits, including:

 

  • Additional support

  • Education

  • Awareness of the underlying problem outside of your 1:1 sessions with your dietitian.

  • Reducing the stigma and isolation of dealing with an eating disorder.

  • Reducing post-meal distress.

  • Connecting with others with a shared experience.

  • For parents and caregivers -- getting support from others to help improve their relationship with their child, spouse, friend.

  • Learning skills and how they worked for people in the real world outside of therapy.

  • Meeting people who are further along the road of recovery -- seeing it's possible.

Getting meaningful support from a safe, compassionate community can be key in ongoing and continued recovery.
