Virtual and In-Person Eating Disorder Relapse Prevention

Fall Intensives

Rolling enrollment is now open.

Relapse is not uncommon for people in recovery from eating disorders. Individuals return to past disordered eating behaviors for a variety of reasons and tend to be particularly vulnerable to relapse during times of great stress. Some stressors that could trigger relapse include:

  • Major life changes such as going off to college or starting a new job
  • Rejection
  • Financial hardship
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Childbirth
  • Loss of a relationship
  • Covid-related stress, grief or loneliness

Whatever your challenges may be, our team is here to help you regain your balance and nourish your hard-earned eating disorder recovery. Connect with us today to learn more about Two-Week Fall Intensives.
