this advocacy site, designed to educate and mentor patients,
parents, and professionals to use themselves knowledgably
and with confidence as advocates for the recovery of these
most lethal of all mental health disorders….eating
disorders. The tools and strategies you will find here
WORK...they are the product of 45 years of my professional
experience treating eating disordered individuals and their
families. Eating disorders are fully curable in 80 percent
of cases when recognized and treated in an effective and
timely manner. With recovery, individuals get their lives
back; parents and families get their loved one back;
treating professionals save lives and improve life quality.
