Understanding Recovery

Recovery from an eating disorder is a slow process, and not something that happens overnight. Unfortunately, eating disorders don’t just disappear by themselves.

Recovery is about more than just gaining weight or breaking the binge/purge cycle. It’s about discovering why those behaviours are there and understanding where they come from, and what can be done instead. Overcoming eating disorders takes time (often over years) and involves hard work.

As those who’ve “been there” can testify, getting effective professional help is needed for lasting change. Not sure where to find help? Contact the RecoverySpace team for assistance.
