Anorexia Nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder. This has not changed in years, despite having better treatment, research, and knowledge. The key to recovery is not waiting any longer to get help. The longer the disease goes untreated, the more difficult it is to treat.
Most people with Anorexia Nervosa never believe that they are “sick enough” to get the diagnosis, let alone receive the treatment they deserve. This is simply not true and unfortunately, your desire to lose weight will never stop, and it will never be enough until you are dead.
Please, end the cycle for yourself or someone that you love and call today to make that first step towards getting your life back.
We will work with your physician, nutritionists, and other medical professionals to give you the comprehensive treatment you deserve.
