Eating Disorders

The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) released the “Nine Truths About Eating Disorders” to address common misconceptions about eating disorders. These Nine Truths were developed by experts in the field and address facts about the eating disorder treatment and how eating disorders are thought to develop. There continues to be a stigma associated with eating disorders, such as bulimia and anorexia, which frequently prevents individuals from seeking treatment. ANAD’s intent was to increase understanding and to promote early intervention and treatment. One of the most important Truths is ” Full recovery from an eating disorder is possible. Early detection and intervention are important.” The Nine Truths can be found here:
