Welcome to the Eating Disorder Information Gateway

In order to increase knowledge and awareness of eating disorders, their treatment and relevant research, Eating Recovery Center | Pathlight Behavioral Health is pleased to provide the Eating Disorder Information Gateway.

The Gateway is a free, publicly-accessible database of citations on eating disorders. The majority of citations are articles from medical journals, but the database also includes books, handouts from non-profit organizations, policy papers, and even poetry and other creative works. New materials are constantly being added to the Gateway, so please check back frequently.

The public database includes a limited selection of articles that are available to all users. If you would like to access the full library, please click the “Request an Account” button in the upper right of the public Eating Disorders Information Gateway page. Your request will be reviewed, and if approved, you will receive an email with your login credentials.

If you are an Eating Recovery Center | Pathlight Behavioral Health employee, choose “Staff Login” in the upper right corner of the page. You will be prompted to use your single-sign-on credentials to access the full library.
