If I could pick one thing that Eating Recovery Center taught me, it would definitely be 'fearless.' You gave me the recovery tools to run after my problems, to catch them, and solve the issue. I am able to celebrate my body with kindness and passion. Thank you, Eating Recovery Center for not only saving my life but, for giving me a full life of gratitude. Thank you!
