Where to Find Help

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Early intervention is ideal, but it is never too late to seek help for yourself or someone you care about who is struggling with an eating disorder. A few helpful resources:

-- The National Eating Disorder Association information and referral help line: 800-931-2237. Web site: http://www.NationalEatingDisorders.org.

-- The Eating Disorder Referral and Information Center: http://www.edreferral.com.

-- Something Fishy, a Web site offering information and peer support: http://www.somethingfishy.org.

-- The eating disorders program at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore: 410-955-3863 (outpatient and consultation clinic), 410-502-5467 (inpatient or partial hospitalization programs).
