Eating Recovery Center
Support Groups

Sustaining Progress & Recovery Nationwide

Please note: To best care for our alumni, families and community during this time, we are not currently offering in-person support groups at our centers. However, we recognize the importance of connecting with community and support systems during difficult times, and are working to offer additional online support groups for both alumni and family / community members. Please visit our virtual support group page for more information and our latest offerings.

So that we can offer virtual resources to as many ECR/Insight alumni and community members as possible, we are asking that you attend only one ERC/Insight virtual support group per week. We are also capping attendance to 15 people at each virtual support group. That means the virtual support groups are first-come, first-served.

Eating Recovery Center offers free, trained facilitator-led, support groups for those struggling with eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and other disordered eating issues), as well as mood and anxiety disorders. ERC also offers some support groups for families and community members. These support groups provide support, resources and education on eating disorder treatment and recovery.
