Laura Discipio and Trish Jones, both of ANAD (Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders) talk about providing free services to those dealing with eating disorders.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)-There are several different approaches to treatment and recovery depending on the patient and individual need. Out-patient treatment include seeking therapy, a nutritionist, dietitian and primary care physician. These are often the first steps towards recovery. In-patient treatment is a form of treatment where patients, who are at a more critical condition, need hospitalization and 24 hour care.  Below is a list of hotlines (you can call anonymously), and Eating Disorder resources. Recovery is possible, and help is available. ANAD, Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders is a non-profit organization that works to support, advocate, and educate on the issues of eating disorders.
