GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)-Eating Disorder Awareness Week is February 26-March 4, 2017. For people who are experiencing an eating disorder or other associated disorders, help is available. The number of children under the age of 12 admitted to the hospital for an eating disorder rose 119% in less than a decade, according to Eating Disorders Coalition. Eating Disorders account for 4% of all childhood hospitalizations. Many times when treatment is finally sought, the illness has spiraled out of control and the chances for a full recovery grow slim.

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.
