Saving Lives Through Charitable Care

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any other mental illness. Up to 20 percent of those with serious eating disorders will die without treatment. Covering out of pocket costs beyond what insurance covers can be financially devastating for families, causing patients to turn away from life-saving treatment altogether.

Eating Recovery Foundation’s Care Fund

The Eating Recovery Foundation is committed to closing the financial gap for those facing hardship to ensure a complete course of care. Up to 80 percent of those who receive complete treatment will recover or improve significantly. To date, we have been able to support over 190 episodes of care for patients from 27 states through our Care Fund.

Every life matters

Meet Nicole Griswald, an ERC patient whose insurance and financial resources ran out before she could be safely discharged from Eating Recovery Center’s care. The Foundation’s Care Fund provided the resources necessary for Nicole to stay in treatment and be afforded the opportunity for recovery.

“The ERC staff held hope for me when I didn’t feel hopeful,” says Nicole. “I never thought that I’d be where I am today. I can say that I’m in full recovery. I have my own photography business and as a 30 year old, I am hopeful. I feel powerful. I’m living my life. I’m following my dreams. I’m really grateful to feel like I’m actually living my life.”

Throughout the year, the Foudation helps many patients, like Nicole, complete the course of treatment they need to move forward in a life of recovery.

How can you help?

Until there’s a time when all patients have access to care, no matter what their financial circumstances may be, the Foundation will remain committed to providing treatment to as many in-need patients as possible.
