Seeking Help and Support for Yourself

Caring about someone with an eating disorder evokes a range of emotions. The more knowledge, guidance, and support you have, the easier it will be for you in dealing with the situation. A therapist or support group may be necessary. If your loved one knows you are also seeking support, he or she may be more focused on recovery. First and foremost, you must remember to take care of YOU.

At CEDC, we believe an individual’s family and friends are an integral part of a person’s recovery. For individuals in residential, PHP, or IOP care, the Case Manager will have regular contact and meetings with the family or friends. Our goal is to increase the family’s understanding of their loved one’s illness, to help them better understand how to respond in difficult situations, and to help create an environment in which there is more open communication and effective support. We hold monthly support groups for families and friends run by the center’s director, Dr. Seda Ebrahimi. These groups are open to family and friends of individuals currently receiving treatment at our facility.


  • Today, I am happy, healthy and safe, and thriving because of the love and support I received at CEDC…
  • The CEDC program has left me feeling strong and optimistic, and I cannot say enough positive things about the program....I know that the road ahead will not be easy but just knowing that CEDC is there as a safety net gives me a feeling of calm…
  • Thank you for everything---especially for believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself. Sometimes that was what convinced me to keep trying even when I felt hopeless…
  • I can’t express how grateful I am to have had people like you in my life. You have all helped me more than I could have ever dreamed possible. Every day I looked forward to coming in to partial to see your smiling faces, and your kindness has brightened the hardest of days…
  • Not only did CEDC teach me how to beat my eating disorder, but you also taught me how to be a good person, how to help other people, and listen to them….Thank you all for making me ME again.
