The Role of the Care Partner in Eating Disorder Recovery

truggling with an eating disorder can be a lonely and isolating experience, but recovery is just the opposite. Having a solid and empowering support system is an invaluable resource while recovering from an eating disorder like binge eating disorder, bulimia nervosa, or anorexia nervosa. And a crucial member of that support system at Within Health is the patient’s care partner, or recovery mentor.

The Importance of Community During Eating Disorder Recovery

Often, stories of eating disorder recovery focus on the individual, what they have achieved, and how they have grown and healed. While celebrating these stories is a vital part of the recovery space, it’s also important to recognize how relationships and community play a role in eating disorder recovery. Treatment and recovery don’t occur in a vacuum—the connections recovering individuals make are invaluable to the healing process. A solid community of people in recovery can provide each other with validation, support, guidance, and a place to process difficult emotions, all while lifting each other up in times of triumph.
