Daria C.
"I think that Within really does a great job overall. The opportunity to do my eating disorder treatment at home was a game changer. I would have never done residential treatment."
Jennifer T.
Within Health alumni
"Within has given me the tools I need to stay afloat outside of treatment. From day one, my team has supported me in so many ways. From somatic exercises to art therapy and even movement groups. I am lucky to have gotten the support I needed to be where I am today."
Mika Y.
"My Care Partner was the glue holding everything together. She connected the dots between my other caregivers. It was nice to review my assignments with her or process something that happened during the week."
"My nurse was like my rock throughout my treatment. She was so encouraging and always on top of my medical care. As the struggles of treatment came and went, I knew she would always be there to check on me during the week."
Stephen G.
Within Health alumni
"The meal delivery was a life saver at the beginning of treatment. It makes the transition into treatment that much easier."
Markus R.
Within Health alumni
"The Within program has helped me tremendously. I am in a much better place now than I was 6 months ago. I am now able to eat with more frequency and eat a less-restricted diet."
"The alumni group has been so helpful in my recovery. It’s a chance for me to share my challenges and successes and receive support in a safe space from week to week. I always know at least one person and I enjoy connecting with new peers to make my community grow."
Within Health alumni
"The alumni group has been part of my weekly recovery since I stepped down. It has been such a helpful bridge in my transition from IOP to outpatient. The clients and leaders have given me the space to be truly vulnerable and honest. It is so special to continue to connect with the people I have met at Within Health. I truly value this 45 minutes each week."
Zoey V.
"My dietitian was always there for me. When I started the program, I was anxious and uncomfortable, but my dietitian made sure my comfort was always the first priority. I probably would have quit programming at the start if not for him."
Within Health alumni
"In addition to the individualized attention I received on a daily basis, Within Health also integrated perfectly into my real life. I was able to schedule programming, receive support around working a full-time job, and re-integrate myself into society. No other program has done that for me, and I think that is what makes Within truly unique."
Isla K.
Veterinary nurse
"The individualized attention and treatment plan make Within Health stand out from every other place I've been. From three individual therapy sessions a week to weekly dietitian sessions, nursing sessions, and care partner sessions, I was able to make some headway into my own personal issues with my eating disorder and really work on my personal recovery."
Sociology student
"After seven medical stabilization hospitalizations and six failed treatment programs, I came to Within Health. Within Health was the best treatment program I have ever done and is what led me to break the treatment cycle and into a lasting recovery."
Elizabeth G.
Within Health alumni
"I love that we have the opportunity to remain in touch with people that have supported each other through a very difficult time in their lives and continue to offer and receive ongoing support."
Monica H.
Nursing assistant
"We have built friendships, so it's amazing that we can continue those friendships with people we have trusted with our deepest issues."
Dylan P.
Content creator
"I think alumni group is extremely important because many people unfortunately have to discontinue therapy too soon due to the expense, therefore if they have unresolved issues to discuss, this is the place they can get that ongoing support!"
Within Health alumni
"Alumni group is a no judgment space where anyone who has recovered at whatever level that means for them, can keep working on self improvement as well as continue to offer reciprocal support to people they have grown deep connections with. That's KEY!"
Rory K.
Social worker
