Teens in Eating Disorder Recovery often feel like they are alone on their journey, even when working with a treatment team…
Every day brings challenges that seem hard to overcome, making it more challenging. You feel alone, worried, stressed, anxious, angry, and even sad. Losing self-confidence and sense of control over your life.
One of the best ways to challenge and navigate harmful messaging and thoughts like these is to find a space to support and lift you up. A space to talk with others in the same situation. And there are others like you.
Something we have learned from our years of working with clients is that teens in ED recovery need this safe space to talk openly with others going through the same challenges – fellow teens they can relate to and share in their journey together.
At Marci RD Nutrition, we offer a group program for teens that offers this support …
This group is a space for teens ages 14 to 18 who are motivated in their eating disorder recovery to have an opportunity to connect with peers and engage in meaningful conversation – a space where they can do most of the talking, processing and lead the discussion.
Teens in ED Recovery: Navigating Real Life Challenges is a six week group surrounding common challenges teens may face when navigating ED recovery.
It offers you a safe place to:
- Talk about the things teens don’t talk about anywhere else
- Feel seen, heard and understood by peers who get it
- To navigate life by covering a different topic every week such as; Debunking diet culture, Body image, social media, TV & more, Navigating social situations (friends, family, holidays), Diversity, BIPoC, identity, Back to school after treatment, Fear of foods
Our groups are not like being in treatment, they are a safe space to receive and offer support and encouragement with a group of peers who are experiencing the same thing as you are, along with professional advice and guidance.
Our next Teens in ED Recovery group starts on Tuesday, October 4th, 2022 and runs for 6 weeks.

(Note: These are Virtual groups for teens ages 14-18 who are currently working with a treatment team. We require both parental permission along with confirmation from your treatment team that you are able to participate in an outpatient program like this one.)
Our Teens in ED Recovery groups are led by Registered Dietitian, Anita Dharwadkar.

She has extensive experience with Family Based Treatment which informs her approach when working with families and youth.
If you are interested in joining our next group, please apply for the program here and Anita will be in touch to discuss your application.
We do limit these groups to a maximum of 6 participants to ensure everyone receives an equal opportunity to share experiences and receive the adequate support they need to learn these new skills.
Our group programs are not covered by insurance.
